Sergio Kindle, others get tryouts with New York Giants

Sergio Kindle (94) was among players who tried out for the New York Giants this week - Larry French

Former top prospect Sergio Kindle, whose career was derailed by a fractured skull, tried out for the New York Giants this week.

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese made it known at the end of the 2012 season that the team needed improved play from its linebackers in 2013. Could former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Sergio Kindle be a guy the Giants give an opportunity to help them?

Kindle was reportedly among a large group of players the Giants worked out on Thursday, news that was originally reported by the Baltimore Sun, which also added that the Giants did not immediately sign the former 2010 second-round pick (43rd overall) to a contract.

Kindle had only one tackle in three games during his career with the Ravens before the team released him this season.

Kindle missed his rookie season after a fall down two flights of stairs that fractured his skull and resulted in partial hearing loss. The Sun says Kindle "was never the same" after the fall.

Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger tweeted the full list of players the Giants worked out. It included:

Tight ends Jamie Childers and Steve Skelton, defensive end Buddy Jackson, kickers Justin Medlock and Carson Wiggs, punter Jake Rogers, quarterback Chester Stewart, and wide receiver Patrick Turner.

It remains to be seen if Kindle, or anyone else on that list, will be signed.
