Giants summer questionnaire: Linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka |
Life is good for Mathias Kiwanuka right now, and that hasn't always been the case.

After multiple switches from defensive end to linebacker and back, his brother's motorcycle accident and a neck injury that robbed him of most of the 2010 season and had him thinking about life after football, the former first-round pick is now enjoying his role as a full-time linebacker, participated in a Super Bowl victory after sitting out the previous one with a leg injury, received a nice contract extension this offseason, witnessed the birth of his first child and got married this past weekend.

2012 NFL supplemental draft -- WR Josh Gordon to hold pro day Tuesday, source says - ESPN
Former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon, who has declared for Thursday's supplemental draft, is scheduled to hold his pro day on Tuesday at the Houston Texans' training facility, according to a league source.

Multiple NFL teams are expected to attend, and the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon is expected to be timed in the 40-yard dash in the 4.4s or better.

One NFL scout said Gordon could go as high as the second round, and he is considered a rare talent as far as supplemental drafts go.
