The New York Giants worked out so many players on Monday that they don’t all fit in a single tweet. Here is the list:

Running back Akeem Hunt should be familiar to Giants fans. He was with the team in the 2015 preseason, having signed as an undrafted free agent. Hunt spent two seasons with the Houston Texans and played last season for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Quarterback Connor Cook played in one regular-season game for the Oakland Raiders in 2016 after they drafted him in the fourth round. He holds the distinction of being the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to make his first — and until now only — career start in a playoff game.

Wide receiver Marcus Easley hasn’t played in the NFL since 2015.

Dan Skipper is a 6-foot-9, 317-pound offensive tackle who played in one game for the Detroit Lions last season. Tackle Roubbens Joseph spent 2017 on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.

So, Giants fans, not a lot to get excited about here. About what you might expect for a midseason free agent workout.
