Giants Roster Breakdown: Jim Cordle

Jim Cordle works out at the Timex Performance Center - Patrick McDermott

Jim Cordle has been a useful reserve offensive lineman for the Giants for the past two seasons. The addition of several young linemen appears to put Cordle's roster spot in jeopardy.

Jim Cordle is a player who seems like he has been around the New York Giants for a long time, yet one we have still seen very little of. Cordle is in the spotlight today as we continue our look at the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.

2012 Season In Review

Cordle, a backup guard/center, was active for all 16 games in 2012. He played 49 offensive snaps, seeing limited action action at both guard positions and center.

2013 Outlook

Cordle (@JimCordle63 on Twitter) spent the 2010 season with the Giants after signing out of Ohio State as an undrafted free agent. He made the practice squad again in 2011 and was eventually added to the active roster, appearing nine games.He would appear to have a serious challenge on his hands to make the roster again in 2013. Brandon Mosley, the 2012 fourth-round pick, is healthy after spending 2012 on IR. He has been working at guard. The Giants drafted offensive lineman Justin Pugh in the first round and guard Eric Herman in the seventh. Cordle, who turns 26 in August, would appear to be out of practice squad eligibility per NFL rules.
