Who is Jamaal Johnson-Webb? Does he have a chance of sticking with the Giants?

As we continue our player-by-player profiles of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp July 21, let's look at a player the Giants recently claimed on waivers. That would be offensive lineman Jamaal Johnson-Webb, who was last with the Buffalo Bills.

2013 Season In Review

Entered the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent from Alabama A&M. Was cut by Arizona during training camp, and spent parts of the season on the practice squads of the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills.

2014 Season Outlook

The Giants were awarded Johnson-Webb off waivers from the Bills on May 14. Johnson-Webb is a 6-foot-6, 306-pound 24-year-old who has at least one thing the Giants like -- collegiate experience playing both guard and tackle. Johnson-Webb seems like a project-type player, and the number of teams he has already been with suggests that NFL teams are at least curious enough to want a close-up look of their own. At least one scouting report suggests the biggest issue might be finding Johnson-Webb at position. Johnson-Webb remains practice squad eligible, and is likely competing to show the Giants enough to earn a spot there this season.
