NEW YORK GIANTS SIGN KEVIN SNEAD, WAIVE MARTIN WALLACE…
The New York Giants have signed another undrafted rookie free agent tryout player, wide receiver Kevin Snead, who impressed the team during last week’s three-day rookie mini-camp.

To make room for Snead, the Giants waived offensive lineman Martin Wallace, who was signed by the Giants to a reserve/future contract in January 2017. Wallace was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Cleveland Browns after the 2013 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Browns (2013), Panthers (2014-2015), Buccaneers (2015), Bears (2015-2016), Cardinals (2016), and Jets (2016).

Snead is an extremely fast but raw, small-school player who has some experience at both corner and wide receiver. He only had five catches in college. Snead did return kickoffs in college.

NEW YORK GIANTS MAKE SIX ROSTER MOVES…
The New York Giants made six roster moves on Saturday. The team signed rookie mini-camp tryout players running back Khalid Abdullah, cornerback SaQwan Edwards, and safety Trey Robinson.

To make room for these three, the Giants waived undrafted rookie free agents wide receiver Robert Wheelwright and cornerback Nigel Tribune as well as running back Daryl Virgies, who the Giants signed to a reserve/future contract in January 2017.

RB Khalid Abdullah, 5’10”, 194lbs, 4.69, James Madison University (Video)
Abdullah is a super-productive, instinctive, small-school running back who lacks ideal size and speed, but he can make defenders miss.

CB SaQwan Edwards, 6’1”, 187lbs, 4.52, University of New Mexico (Video)
Edwards was signed by the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2015 NFL Draft and spent most of the 2015 season on the team’s Practice Squad and all of 2016 on Injured Reserve with an undisclosed injury. Edwards is a tall, athletic corner.

S Trey Robinson, 6’1”, 203lbs, 4.63, Furman University (Video)
Robinson is a physical safety with decent size and overall athleticism.
