New York Giants Sign Tight End Xavier Grimble: The New York Giants have signed undrafted rookie free agent tight end Xavier Grimble.
BBI scouting report on Xavier Grimble:
Grimble has good size and size potential. While Grimble is not overly quick, he is agile and has deceptive speed. As a receiver, he is a solid short-to-intermediate threat with good hands and run-after-the-catch ability. He is more of a position blocker who can struggle to get movement, but he does work at it.
Grimble is the tenth undrafted rookie free agent the Giants have signed since the 2014 NFL Draft ended. The others are DE Kerry Wynn (Richmond), DE Emmanuel Dieke (Georgia Tech), DE Jordan Stanton (James Madison), DT Kelcy Quarles (South Carolina), DT Eathyn Manumaleuna (BYU), LB Justin Anderson (Louisiana-Lafayette), LB Dan Fox (Notre Dame), S Thomas Gordon (Michigan), and S C.J. Barnett (Ohio State). The Giants also claimed offensive lineman Jamaal Johnson-Webb off of waivers from the Bills on Wednesday.
