Several interesting, recognizable names worked out for the New York Giants on Tuesday, according to a variety of media reports. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back Felix Jones and tight end Tony Moeaki headed the list.
Pryor spent three seasons with the Oakland Raiders, completing only 56.3 percent of his passes and throwing 12 interceptions compared to only nine touchdowns. He was cut by the Seattle Seahawks before the season began. Art Stapleton points out that Pryor has also said he is open to playing wide receiver.
Jones is a six-year veteran. He spent five seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and one with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has 2,912 rushing yards in his career and has averaged 4.7 yards per carry. He averaged only 3.8 per carry for Pittsburgh last season on 48 carries. Jones, 27, also has 137 career catches.
Source tells me that RB Felix Jones isn't being signed by the #Giants at this time. Will be put on the team's "short list" if & when needed.— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) October 21, 2014
Moeaki is a four-year veteran. He spent three-plus seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, and also played two games for the Buffalo Bills last season. Moeaki caught 33 passes for Kansas City in 2012.
Should you expect any signings? Remember that NFL teams work out scores of players every week, signing only a few.
Giants doing due diligence with these FA workouts. Doesn't mean any will be signed right now. Maybe at end of year though.— Patricia Traina (@Patricia_Traina) October 21, 2014
