The biggest storyline of the day for the Giants was the injury to Johnson, but they have been busy at other positions as well. Hand was a fifth-round pick of the Vikings in 2020, making 23 appearances during his time there. He primarily played on special teams, but registered an interception and three pass breakups as a rookie. Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News tweets that Minnesota was interested in re-signing him had he cleared waivers.

The release of Akins is somewhat surprising, given the Giants’ question marks at the tight end position. The former Texans third-rounder signed just before the draft, where New York added Daniel Bellinger in the fourth round. The latter had a brief stint on the PUP list at the start of training camp, but, if healthy, could be the favorite to take on Evan Engram‘s vacated starting spot.

Packers Add 14 Undrafted Free Agents

The Packers roster now includes 14 undrafted rookies:

The Packers already added three rookie wideouts via the draft, but that didn’t stop them from signing Davis. The Wisconsin product played 51 games during his collegiate career, hauling in 1,642 yards and 14 scores. He also contributed a bit in the running game, and he even served as a backup punt returner.

The team also added a trio of linebackers. Brice is a good story, as the defender worked his way from Hutchinson Community College (Kansas) to Florida Atlantic, where he collected 141 tackles and 8.5 tackles for loss in 30 games. Brooks earned second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2021, and he finished his career with the Nittany Lions having compiled 230 tackles. Manac earned second-team All-Sun Belt in 2021 after collecting 57 tackles and 10.5 sacks.
