The New York Giants hosted three players for an extended tryout during their June 7-9 mandatory minicamp and at least one of them made a good first impression. The front office inked wide receiver Keelan Doss to a deal as he looks to take advantage of this opportunity to earn a NFL roster spot.
New York Giants Free Agency
Doss entered the league as an undrafted free agent back in 2019 when he was signed by the Las Vegas Raiders. He ended up appearing in eight games for Las Vegas (two starts), racking up 133 yards on 11 receptions. The 26-year-old was eventually waived at the final cutdown stage in 2021.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound pass-catcher has bounced between the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets' practice squads since that time. Doss showcased his potential during his four-year career at UC Davis as he set the school record for both receiving yards (4,218) and touchdowns (29).
The Giants have no shortage of depth at the WR position now with 14 players taking up space on the roster. Only a few of them are locked into long-term deals, though. Doss has a chance to beat names like Robert Foster, Collin Johnson, and C.J. Board with a strong training camp showing.
Linebacker T.J. Brunson was released in a corresponding move after spending the 2021 season in the IR. For now, the Giants will look to make some noise in the NFC East and have odds set at +700 to win the division, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
