The team announced Friday that the first-round cornerback signed his rookie deal just before Big Blue opened rookie minicamp. Apple's four-year pact also includes a fifth-year option.
The Giants also signed second-round wideout Sterling Shepard and sixth-round tight end Jerell Adams. Of the three, Apple was the team's most surprising pick, with most projecting New York to land linebacker Leonard Floyd. After the Bears traded up to grab the Georgia outside linebacker, though, Big Blue was forced to look elsewhere.
