Jason Pierre Paul, the Giants hulking superstar defensive end, picked up teammate Prince Amukamara and dumped him in a cold tub at the Giants’ practice facility. Hazing? Well, maybe if the video was from last year, when Prince was a rookie. But if it is from recently – Steve Weatherford, the Giants punter, tweeted it Saturday morning – then you’ve got to wonder if the two had some sort of beef. Why would another Giants player be shouting, “stand up for yourself?” Why would Pierre Paul essentially be doing a victory lap and high-fiving teammates as Amukamara walks away, clearly dejected with a sad look on his face?
Amukamara is shaping up to be a pivotal defensive player this season for the Giants, as the former Nebraska star appears to be one of the team’s starting cornerbacks.
Finally! A Giants story that might garner some interest and take the spotlight away from the Jets and that backup quarterback of theirs.
