Justin Trattou is one of several young defensive ends vying for roster spots with the 2013 New York Giants. Let's look closely at Trattou as we continue our player-by-player breakdowns of the Giants' 90-man roster heading into training camp.
2012 Season In Review
After a 2011 season that saw Trattou, an undrafted free agent from Florida, see brief action in six games he spent the 2012 season on injured reserve with a foot injury suffered during training camp.
Before Damontre Moore was drafted, before Adrian Tracy and Adewale Ojomo became the young defensive ends to watch, before Matt Broha spent 2012 on the practice squad Trattou, 24, was the young defensive end on the rise for the Giants. Can the 6-foot-4, 255-pound third-year player reclaim his status at the front of the line of young Giants' defensive ends? It won't be easy, but don't count Trattou out of the mix.
