UDFA safety appears to be long shot to stick around

We have spent a lot of time this off-season discussing the candidates for the one, and maybe two, backup safety spots the New York Giants appear to have up for grabs entering the 2017 NFL season.

Perhaps the longest shot in the field competing for one of those spots is Trey Robinson, a 6-foot-1, 203-pound undrafted free agent from Furman who was signed after impressing during a rookie mini-camp tryout.

Let’s take a closer look at Robinson as we continue our player-by-player profiles of the Giants’ 90-man roster.

2016 Season In Review

Robinson, playing at 220 pounds according to his collegiate bio, led Furman with 104 tackles, including 55 solo and four for loss. Robinson added one interception. He had 68 tackles and four interceptions as a junior in 2015.

Perhaps the best breakdown of Robinson I’ve been able to find comes from the Football Game Plan video below:

2017 Season Outlook

The safety spot for the Giants is crowded. If the 22-year-old Robinson can somehow work his way into a spot on the practice squad, that will have to be considered an outstanding accomplishment.
