The New York Giants have officially signed their 2018 draft class.
Defensive lineman RJ McIntosh signed his contract late Sunday, completing the Giants’ draft class before rookies take the field for their first practice Monday. The Giants drafted the defensive tackle out of Miami in the fifth round with their sixth and final pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. McIntosh started 26 games for the Hurricanes, playing in 31, racking up 103 tackles, 23 tackles for a loss, and 5.6 sacks in his career at Miami.
Spotrac estimates his four year contract to be $2.71 million, with a 2018 cap hit of roughly $550,000.
McIntosh has been dealing with an apparent thyroid condition and has not yet stepped on the practice field. The Giants have said that he will begin training camp on the “Active/Non-Football Injury” list.
We do not yet have an update on McIntosh’s condition, or when he might finally be ready to take the practice field.
