We continue our look at the New York Giants 90-man training roster by focusing on wide receiver Keith Carlos, a player who was only signed within the last few weeks.
2012 Season In Review
Carlos, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, was out of football in 2012 after a brief stint with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011. He has never appeared in an NFL game. Carlos played college football at Purdue, where he was used both at wide receiver and running back. For Purdue he caught 21 passes in 2009 and ran for 314 yards in 2010.
Carlos seems like the classic definition of a camp body. With Victor Cruz not attending any of the offseason program or mini-camp, and Hakeem Nicks having skipped OTAs, the Giants added Carlos to the roster. Carlos would seem to be a long shot to make the roster, or even the practice squad. Right now young wide receivers Brandon Collins and Jeremy Horne would seem better candidates to stick around.
