A young member of the New York Giants’ secondary who has barely gotten any attention leading up to the 2019 season is second-year safety Sean Chandler. Let’s see where Chandler fits as we continue our series of profiles of the players on the Giants’ 90-man roster.

The basics

Height: 5-foot-10
Weight: 205
Age: 23
Position: Safety
Experience: 1

2019 season in review

An undrafted free agent out of Temple, Chandler made the Giants’ 53-man roster. He ended up playing sparingly in 16 games. He played 141 defensive snaps, 44 of those in the season finale vs. the Washington Redskins. He finished with 18 tackles, 16 of them solo.

2019 outlook

Jabrill Peppers (strong) and Antoine Bethea (free) will be the Giants’ starting safeties. Veteran Michael Thomas is the likely third safety. Rookies Corey Ballentine and Julian Love have been discussed as players who could transition to the free safety role eventually.

In all of that, Chandler is probably penciled in to be what he was a year ago — a backup who occasionally sees the field on defense and makes most of his impact covering punts and kickoffs.
