The New York Giants, seeking a replacement for Victor Cruz on their 53-man roster, worked out journeyman wide receiver Kevin Ogletree today. Josina Anderson of ESPN was first to report that Ogletree was among the group of players who worked out for the Giants today at Quest Diagnostics Training Center.
Ogletree, 27, has played for the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He spent three seasons in Dallas. Ogletree split last season between Detroit and Tampa Bay, catching a career-best 34 passes. He caught 32 passes for Dallas in 2012.
Ogletree was on the Lions' 53-man roster at the beginning of the season, but was inactive for two games before being cut. The Queens native began the preseason expected to be one of Detroit's starting wide receivers.
In 62 career regular-season games, Ogletree caught 78 passes for 999 yards and six touchdowns.
Is Ogletree a better option than current Giants' practice squad members Julian Talley or Juron Criner?
