New York Giants Sign TE Will Tye and DT Carlif Taylor: According to various reports, the New York Giants have signed rookie free agents tight end Will Tye (Stony Brook University) and defensive tackle Carlif Taylor (Southern Connecticut State University). Both were invited as tryout players to the team’s three-day rookie mini-camp that concluded on Sunday.
TE Will Tye, 6’2”, 262 pounds, 4.57, Stony Brook University
Tye was a Florida State transfer. Tye lacks ideal height but he is well-built athlete with very good speed for a tight end. Versatile, Tye lined up at tight end, in the backfield, and split out wide at Stony Brook University where he was a very productive receiver.
DT Carlif Taylor, 6’2”, 319 pounds, 5.10, Southern Connecticut State University
Taylor is a raw Division-II prospect with a very nice combination of size and athletic ability. Taylor lacks ideal height, but he strong, quick, and plays with good natural leverage. Taylor hustles and plays hard.
