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.

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.

Robinson is a physical safety with decent size and overall athleticism.

The New York Giants have officially signed the following players to reserve/future contracts for 2017:

  • RB Daryl Virgies
  • OG Martin Wallace
  • LB Curtis Grant
  • S Rahim Moore

Virgies is a small school back who was not drafted or signed after the 2016 NFL Draft. He did work out with the Packers, Colts, and Winnipeg Blue bombers of the CFL. Virgies has good size and outstanding speed.

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). Wallace has only played in one regular-season game with no starts. He has very good size.

Grant was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the San Diego Chargers after the 2015 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Chargers (2015), Falcons (2015), Titans (2016), Raiders (2016), and 49ers (2016). Grant is a well-built, physical linebacker whose instincts and agility have been questioned. He was considered the #1 inside linebacking prospect coming out of high school.

Moore was originally drafted in the 2nd round of 2011 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. The Giants pursued Moore in free agency in 2015 before he signed with the Houston Texans, who waived him in March 2016 after he was benched for the bulk of the season. Moore signed with the Browns last year but he did not make the team. Moore lacks ideal size but he is good athlete with fine range for the position. He is not a physical player against the run and he misses too many tackles.
