Eli Penny is sticking with the Giants. The organization agreed to a two-year deal with the fullback, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan (via Twitter). The 26-year-old was set to become a restricted free agent.
Penny, the older brother of Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny, was an undrafted free agent out of Idaho in 2016. After serving as a running back in college, he spent the first two-plus seasons of his career as a fullback with the Cardinals. He got into 16 games with Arizona in 2017, compiling 124 rushing yards and two scores on 31 attempts. He also added two receptions and 12 special teams tackles.
He joined the Giants during the 2018 campaign, and he’s spent the past season-plus with the organization. That includes a 2019 campaign where he appeared in 16 games and contributed 39 rushing yards.
