New York Giants Reserve/Future Contracts: OL Ikechuku Ndukwe

How about another offensive lineman?

After taking a look at OL Jim Cordle earlier this week let's profile Ikechuku Ndukwe, the older brother of Cincinnati Bengals strong safety Chinedum Ndukwe. The 6-foot-5, 325-pound Ndukwe is 28 and has most recently played for the Kansas City Chiefs. Before that, the Northwestern graduate was a member of the New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins. Ndukwe last suited up for Chiefs in 2009, when he started three games and appeared in 12. The year before that, he started 15 of 16 games for the Miami Dolphins.

Ndukwe is known for his size, but he has shown decent foot quickness. In his 33 appearances, Ndukwe allowed just 3.5 sacks and committed eight penalties for 55 yards. He played guard in college, but is now listed at tackle. Given the uncertainty surrounding the future - and even present - shape of the Giants' offensive line, it's hard to really count anyone out at this stage. If he stays healthy, Ndukwe could grab a reserve spot.
