Giants Sign 15 Undrafted Players

The Giants have agreed to sign 15 undrafted free agents, per a club announcement. They had 80 players on the roster heading into Monday morning, so five players will have to be cut in order to make room for the newcomers. Here’s the full rundown:

Dillon’s deal includes a $40K guarantee, as Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle tweets. That’s an indication that other clubs were keen on the LSU product. Last year, Dillon finished out with 15 catches for 202 yards and two touchdowns in Joe Burrow‘s offense.

Cookus, a quarterback out of Northern Arizona, likely would have heard his name called over the weekend if not for a pair of season-ending shoulder injuries in college. In his final season with the Lumberjacks, Cookus threw for nearly 4,100 yards and 31 touchdowns. Still, making the Giants’ 53-man roster cut will be tough as they already have Colt McCoy and Alex Tanney slotted behind starter Daniel Jones.

    Isn’t Simon Fraser a Canadian university? Does the CFL do nothing about the NFL poaching these players?

      It’s fair game until the CFL Draft, which I believe is coming up in just a few days

        Your right. The CFL draft is apparently on Apr. 30. Given that they only have about 12 major Canadian colleges to support their league, I would have expected them to hold their draft before the NFL and claim as much home grown talent as possible. The league still has a limit on imports.

        I believe nentwigs has been doing his play on words thing longer. Mostly he flops but he hits an occasional home run too. Both he and Papi are trying to offer something entertaining and unique to the site so I will support both of them.
