Cornerback wastes no time getting his name on a contract

NCAA Football: Western Michigan at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Sam Beal, selected in the third round of the recent NFL Supplemental Draft, has signed his rookie contract with the New York Giants. The team made the announcement Monday afternoon.

Beal, a 6-foot-1, 177-pounder out of Western Michigan, will add depth to the cornerback position behind Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple.

More about Beal

In his report on Beal, Chris wrote that he gives the Giants “a young player with starter’s upside to develop.” Scouts generally liked the pick by the Giants.

First-round pick Saquon Barkley and fifth-round pick R.J. McIntosh remain unsigned. Barkley has said he will report to training camp next week regardless of whether he has a signed contract or not. McIntosh’s deal may be getting held up by whatever injury or condition caused him to miss all of the spring practices.
