Several Ex-New York Giants In The UFL

Teams in the United Football League (UFL) recently announced their rosters for the upcoming season, the league's second full year.

Below is a list of players on UFL rosters who have New York Giants' connections.

Hartford Colonials
Head Coach: Chris Palmer
(former Giants quarterbacks coach)

Andre Woodson (QB) -- Sixth-round draft pick in 2008, spent one season on the practice squad. Orrin Thompson (OL) -- Spent the 2009 off-season with the Giants before being among the final cuts of the preseason.

Las Vegas Locomotives
Head Coach: Jim Fassel (former Giants' head coach)

Adrian Awasom (DE) -- Played for the Giants from 2005-2007 as a reserve defensive lineman. Recorded one career NFL quarterback sack. George Wrighster (TE) -- Was in mini-camp with the Giants in 2009, but was let go prior to the beginning of training camp.

Omaha Nighthawks

Stuart Schweigert (S) -- Spent less than three weeks on the Giants' roster during 2008. He was signed during training camp and subsequently cut. Frank Walker (CB) -- A reserve cornerback for the Giants from 2003-2006. I think a lot of Giants fans were relieved when Walker went to Green Bay as a free agent.

NOTE: I don't think I missed anybody, but I might have. Feel free to peruse the rosters yourself and see what names you recognize.
