LARRY DONNELL TENDERED…
NJ.com reports that the New York Giants have tendered restricted free agent tight end Larry Donnell at the $1.671 million level. This means the Giants have the right to match any contract offer by another team in order to retain his services. If they choose not to do so, because Donnell was not drafted or tendered at a high level, the Giants would receive no compensation in the form of a draft pick.
Donnell was placed on Injured Reserve in December 2015 with a neck injury. After a breakout season in 2014, Donnell had a disappointing 2015 campaign as his production dropped from 63 catches for 623 yards and six touchdowns to 29 catches for 223 yards and two touchdowns. He started all eight games in which he played in 2015.
While General Manager Jerry Reese said recently that Donnell has not yet been cleared to resume football drills because of the neck injury, a source told The New York Daily News that Donnell is recovering well and expected to be cleared by the time of the team’s mini-camp in June.
