New York Giants sign seven to reserve/future contracts
With their 2012 campaign at its end and an uncertain 2013 season the only thing to look forward to heading into January, the New York Giants are preparing their roster for what could be a make-or-break year for the franchise.
On Thursday, the Giants announced that they have signed seven players to reserve/future contracts. These contracts lock a player down for spring training, guaranteeing them an opportunity to prove themselves early in 2013 and earn a spot on the training camp roster.
The biggest name on the list is Curtis Painter, a fourth-year quarterback who spent all of 2012 out of the NFL. A former sixth-round draft pick, Painter last saw action with the Indianapolis Colts back in 2011, starting eight games as the Peyton Manning-less Colts suffered a 2-14 season.
Another interesting name on the list is Trumaine McBride, a defensive back who also sat out the 2012 season. A five-year NFL veteran, McBride has struggled to see the field in recent years after starting out his professional career strong with the Chicago Bears. His last stint came with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2011 season, during which time he played in one game.
Of the other players that the Giants locked down for the beginning of the 2013 season, all of them have little to no game experience in the NFL. The other five include: wide receivers Brandon Collins and Kevin Hardy, guard Michael Jasper, linebacker Jake Muasau, and defensive tackle Bobby Skinner.
Although none of these signees are likely to make significant impacts in 2013, it’s a promising start for the Giants as they attempt to bounce back from one of the most disappointing seasons in team history.
