New York Giants Reserve/Future Contracts: LB Kenny Ingram

Third in our series of players offered reserve/future contracts by the New York Giants is one fans may be familiar with. Linebacker Kenny Ingram, a Florida State product who went undrafted in 2009, spent his rookie season on the Giants' practice squad. Ingram rejoined the Giants' practice squad in December 2009 but was released prior to last season's training camp. Like another Giants reserve/future contract player, Ingram most recently spent some time with the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League under former Giants quarterbacks coach Chris Palmer.

At 6-foot-5, 239 pounds, Ingram played safety at Florida State. In high school, he was a three-star player by Rivals.com who also played wide receiver and doubled as a basketball star. Due to academic eligibility issues, Ingram spent the summer of 2006 at Tallahassee Community College and the 2006-07 year at East Central Community College. Ingram returned to FSU in 2007, and in his last year at FSU, he appeared in all 13 games (five starts) and recorded 22 tackles (3.5 for loss).

With the Colonials, Ingram also contributed 22 tackles (13 solo), two pass deflections and one forced fumble. He has been clocked at as high as 4.50 seconds in the 40-yard dash, and with his background as a safety, could be a solid coverage linebacker. Seemingly more than ever, Giants fans have been yearning for ‘backers who can cover, so this could be the time Ingram sticks in the NFL.

Chance of sticking around: Possible
