GIANTS SIGN B.J. GOODSON…
The New York Giants have announced that they have signed linebacker B.J. Goodson, the team’s 4th round draft pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. All of the Giants draft picks are now officially signed.
EUGENE MONROE UPDATE…
ESPN is reporting that the New York Giants have been in contact with offensive tackle Eugene Monroe’s agent since Monroe’s release on Wednesday. Monroe supposedly is assessing his options and may schedule visits next week with multiple teams. ESPN says Monroe would prefer to play left tackle, but will consider playing right tackle.
The 29-year old Monroe was originally drafted in the 1st round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars traded Monroe to the Ravens in October 2013. In seven seasons, Monroe has started regular-season 90 games. He missed five regular-season games in 2014 and 10 regular-season games in 2015 due to injury.
Running back Orleans Darkwa (fractured leg), tight end Matt LaCosse (lower leg), offensive guard Ryan Seymour (torn ligament in hand), offensive tackle Byron Stingily (unknown), defensive tackle Montari Hughes (lower leg), defensive tackle Jay Bromley (unknown), linebacker J.T. Thomas (lower leg), safety Nat Berhe (calf), safety Cooper Taylor (sports hernia), and safety Mykkele Thompson (lower leg) did not practice.
Wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) continued to practice on a limited basis.
