The Giants held their third voluntary organized team activity (OTA) practice on Thursday, and first one open to the media. No live contact is permitted during OTAs, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are allowed.

We’re on really our third practice day today,” said Head Coach Brian Daboll before practice. “We’ll be inside. A little slick outside. Working on some 1st and 2nd down stuff. We’ve had two good days. I’d say we’ve improved a little bit each day, worked on some different situations. Still a long way to go, but it’s been a good start… We’ve had everybody here… We’ve had, I’d say, exceptional attendance… It’s just good to have all the guys here so we can implement our stuff.”

Brunson, and CB Rodarius Williams. Some of these players participated in practice, while others did not.

Yeah, so we’ll have some guys in red jerseys today,” said Head Coach Brian Daboll. “Some can do a little bit more than others. Some are rehabbing. There will be I’d say a number of guys right now in red jerseys. I’m not going to get into the specifics of it right now at this point in time, but you guys will end up seeing them… (Gates) had a tough injury, but he’s done a good job with his rehab. Probably still a little bit a ways away. I’d say him and Matt Peart, they’re rehabbing every single day, getting better each day, so we’ll see where they’re at.”

He spent time on both the Practice Squads of the Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021.

      Maurice Canady, Baltimore Ravens (October 6, 2019)

      Maurice Canady – © USA TODAY Sports

      The New York Giants have signed the following unrestricted free agents:

      • DE Jalyn Holmes (New Orleans Saints)
      • CB Maurice Canady (Dallas Cowboys)
      • CB Khalil Dorsey (Baltimore Ravens)
      • S Henry Black (Green Bay Packers)

      Both Canady and Dorsey have previous experience with former Ravens and current Giants defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale. Holmes was coached by former Vikings and current Giants defensive line coach Andre Patterson in Minnesota.

      The 26-year old, 6’5”, 283-pound Holmes was originally drafted in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. In three seasons with the Vikings, Holmes played in 25 regular-season games with nine starts. All of his starts came in 2020 as he was credited with 36 tackles and two pass defenses. The Vikings waived him in September 2021, and he was then signed by the Saints. He played in eight games with one start and was credited with 14 tackles and one pass defense.

      The 27-year old, 6’1”, 200-pound Canady was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Ravens. He has spent time with the Ravens (2016-2019), New York Jets (2019), and Cowboys (2020-2021). The Ravens cut him in November 2019 and he was then claimed by the Jets. Canady signed with the Cowboys in March 2020, but opted out of the 2020 NFL season due to COVID. Canady has played in 40 regular-season games with four starts. He played in eight games in 2021 with the Cowboys, but missed half the season with a concussion that landed him on Injured Reserve. In those eight games, he played just 14 percent of defensive snaps and was credited with six tackles.

      The 24-year old, 5’9”, 181-pound Dorsey was originally signed as undrafted rookie free agent by the Ravens after the 2020 NFL Draft. He played in six games as a rookie in 2020, almost exclusively on special teams. Dorsey missed all of 2021 with an injury that landed him on Injured Reserve in August. The Ravens chose not to tender him as an exclusive rights free agent.

      The 25-year old, 6’0”, 204-pound Black was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Green Bay Packers after the 2020 NFL Draft. In two seasons, he has played in 25 regular-season games with no starts, While most of his playing time has come on special teams, he did play in 24 percent of all defensive snaps in 2021 and was credited with 38 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble. The Packers chose not to tender him as an exclusive rights free agent.

      To make room for these four, the Giants cut the following players:

      • QB Brian Lewerke (waived)
      • DE Raymond Johnson (waived)
      • LB Trent Harris (contract terminated)
      • S Jordan Mosley (waived/injured)

      Lewerke was signed late in the preseason in August 2021 and then to the Practice Squad in early September 2021. The 6’3”, 216-pound Lewerke was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the New England Patriots after the 2020 NFL Draft. The Patriots waived him in early September 2020.

      The Giants signed Johnson as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2021 NFL Draft. He surprisingly made the team, played in 15 games with no starts (16 percent of all defensive snaps), and finished the season with three tackles, one tackle for a loss, and one sack.

      Harris was signed to the Practice Squad in early September 2021 and the 53-man roster in November. The Giants then placed him on Injured Reserve in early December with an ankle injury and waived him at the end of the month. He played in four games with no starts (15 percent of defensive snaps in those games), finishing with seven tackles. The 6’2”, 255-pound Harris was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the New England Patriots after the 2018 NFL Draft. He spent his rookie season on the Practice Squad of the Patriots. The Miami Dolphins claimed Harris off of waivers in September 2019. He played in 11 games with three starts with the Dolphins, accruing 20 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Dolphins cut him in early September 2020. The Giants signed Harris to the Practice Squad and then the 53-man roster in October 2020; he was re-signed to the Practice Squad in December after playing in four games with two starts (26 percent of all defensive snaps in those games). He finished they year with five tackles and 0.5 sacks.

      Mosley was signed four days ago after impressing as a rookie tryout player during the team’s rookie mini-camp.

      NEW YORK GIANTS ROOKIE MINI-CAMP ENDS…
      The third and final day of the New York Giants three-day rookie mini-camp was held on Sunday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. There was no on-field work on the final day, nor was there media access to the team.

      The Giants begin their Organized Team Activity (OTA) practices next week. Three of their 10 OTAs will be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with media access granted on Thursday.

      GIANTS SIGN TWO MORE ROOKIE FREE AGENTS…
      The Giants have officially signed two more undrafted rookie free agents, who were tryout players during the rookie mini-camp:

      • DE Ryder Anderson, 6’6’’, 4.92, 266lbs, Indiana University
        Anderson has good size, strength, and length. He can control the point-of-attack against the run, but lacks ideal quickness to be factor rushing the passer.
      • S Jordan Mosley, 6’1’’, 210lbs, 4.69, University of Maryland (Video)
        Mosley has good size, but lacks ideal overall athleticism, speed, and agility. An instinctive player, Mosley is also a good tackler.

      DAY TWO OF NEW YORK GIANTS ROOKIE MINI-CAMP…
      The second day of the New York Giants three-day rookie mini-camp was held on Saturday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The final day will be on Sunday, although there will be no on-field work on that day.

      Again this is more a teaching camp,” said Head Coach Brian Daboll before practice. “We are going to see them in individual drills and skillsets that they have, and when we go competitive periods, just making sure we are taking care of one another…They are pretty amped up, they want to go out there and compete. But teaching them tempo is another thing that you have to do.

      So again, these guys, just to get from the locker room to there or from the locker room to the cafeteria, you’ve got to take all that stuff into account, how to log into their iPad and get into film. There’s so many things for these players. They are moving from different spots. It’s the first time for some of them just on your own. Sometimes there’s a lot of family members that help out in college. We are taking it slow and we are going to try to help them grow off the field as well as on the field.”

      NEW YORK GIANTS ROOKIE MINI-CAMP BEGINS…
      The first day of the New York Giants three-day rookie mini-camp was held on Friday at Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

      Good to be out here with these guys,” said Head Coach Brian Daboll before practice. “(The players) got in last night. Had some meetings today with them. Really going to be kind of a short practice…a little bit over an hour. Have some more meetings. Very similar in terms of scheduling tomorrow. It’s good to get with these guys and start working with them and see what some of the stuff they can do in the classroom. Really, more importantly, and just ease them into things outside on the field.

      “It’s for (the players) to get to know us, us to get to know (them). There’s only a couple days we’ll do stuff on the field. There’s a long way to go, as they can see. We’re not going to overdo it in terms of the installation and give them a ton of things to learn. I think it’s really important, particularly the trial guys, to minimize the package, not motion and shift and do all these crazy things, and just see who can perform out there. And maybe we find a couple guys in terms of the tryout guys. Look, these guys have probably not been doing a whole lot of true football work, so we’ll ease them into things.

      We’ll have an hour, hour and ten minutes (of practice). Almost half of it will be some type of walk-through. We’ll do some individual drills. We’ll get about 15, 20 minutes of individual stuff. We have seven-on-seven period and we’ll do 14 plays of that today. That’s it.”

      GIANTS SIGN TWO MORE ROOKIE FREE AGENTS…
      In addition to the 11 undrafted rookie free agents already signed, the Giants have officially signed two more:

      • RB Jashaun Corbin, 6’0’’, 221lbs, 4.58, Florida State University (Video)
        Corbin is is a north/south runner who does his best work between the tackles. He is a patient runner with good vision. He has some shiftiness to his game and can run through tackles. Corbin also can catch the ball out of the backfield, but he needs work in pass protection.
      • OLB Tomon Fox, 6’3’’, 260lbs, 4.79, University of North Carolina (Video)
        Fox lacks ideal athleticism, but he is instinctive, productive, and plays hard.

      HEAD COACH BRIAN DABOLL…
      The  transcript and video of Brian Daboll’s press conference on Friday are available in The Corner Forum and at Giants.com.

      THE PLAYERS SPEAK…

      GIANTS SIGN 11 UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS…
      The New York Giants have officially confirmed that they have signed 11 undrafted rookie free agents:

      • FB Jeremiah Hall, 6’2’’, 248lbs, 4.96, University of Oklahoma (Video)
        Built more like an H-Back or fullback than tight end, Hall was used in the slot, inline, and out of the backfield in college. Hall is a good receiver who runs tough after the catch. Good blocker.
      • TE Andre Miller, 6’3’’, 220lbs, 4.54, University of Maine (Video)
        Miller was a big receiver in college with good overall athletic ability. The Giants intend to convert him to tight end.
      • TE Austin Allen, 6’9’’, 255lbs, 4.83, University of Nebraska (Video)
        Allen is a tall, narrow tight end with a big catch radius and sure hands. He gives an effort in the blocking department, but is more of a position blocker given his frame.
      • OG Josh Rivas, 6’6’’, 317lbs, 5.32, Kansas State University (Video)
        Rivas is a big lineman with decent athleticism for his size. He needs a lot of technique work.
      • DL Christopher Hinton, 6’4’’, 310lbs, 5.28, University of Michigan (Video)
        Hinton lacks ideal size and athleticism, but he is a tough, strong run defender. He plays with leverage and holds his ground. Hinton does not offer much as a pass rusher. Reliable and he plays hard.
      • DL Jabari Ellis, 6’3’’, 278lbs, 4.77, University of South Carolina (Video)
        Ellis was a team captain who played six seasons in college.
      • DL Antonio Valentino, 6’3’’, 312lbs, 5.27, University of Florida (Video)
        Valentino is a big, strong, hard-working lineman who lacks ideal athletic ability and quickness.
      • CB Darren Evans, 6’3’’, 174lbs, 4.53, LSU (Video)
        Evans is a tall, thin corner who has decent overall athleticism. He is aggressive against the run. Evans needs to make more plays on the ball.
      • CB Zyon Gilbert, 6’1’’, 182lbs, 4.42, Florida Atlantic University (Video)
        Gilbert played both safety and cornerback in college. He combines good size and overall athleticism and speed. Gilbert is aggressive against the run, but he needs work in coverage in terms of his anticipation skills and technique.
      • S Yusuf Corker, 6’0’’, 197lbs, 4.53, Kentucky, University of Kentucky (Video)
        A physical, aggressive, and instinctive safety, Corker makes plays on the ball both as a run and pass defender. A bit stiff, he lacks ideal speed and change-of-direction skills. He needs to become a more consistent tackler.
      • S Trenton Thompson, 6’2’’, 200lbs, 4.58, San Diego State University (Video)
        Despite playing six years in college, Thompson only became a full-time starter in his final season. He has good size, but lacks ideal speed. Instinctive, he does play faster than he times. Big hitter. Thompson is a good special teams player.
