As we continue to move through our breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp in late July we have come to one of the newest Giants, Kyle Bosworth, a linebacker signed recently as a free agent after spending the first three years of his NFL career with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

2012 Season In Review

Bosworth played in all 16 games for Jacksonville last season, starting five. He had 37 tackles, a pass defensed and an interception. Bosworth also led the Jaguars with 14 special teams tackles. Bosworth played nine games in 2011 and spent the 2010 season on injured reserve.

2013 Outlook

Bosworth figures to compete for the weak-side (WILL) linebacker job with Spencer Paysinger and Jacquain Williams. Unless there are injuries to those players Bosworth seems most likely to end up as a reserve who makes his biggest impact on special teams -- a role he is familiar with.
