The New York Giants announced Friday that they hosted wide receiver Alex Bachman and defensive tackle David Moa on visits.

The two players were listed by the NFL as being visits or tryouts on the league’s daily wire, according to Albert Breer.

NJ.com’s Art Stapleton is reporting that Bachman and Moa traveled to the Giants’ facilities to begin the COVID-19 testing process. If all goes well, the two could sign as soon as Monday.

Fans will remember Bachman as a training camp star who made waves in practices with dynamic plays. Bachman was a surprise cut at the end of training camp. The Giants ultimately re-signed him to their practice squad after he passed through waivers, though they dropped him on Sep., 15.

Assuming Bachman is re-signed, his return to the Giants could be a commentary on the receivers on the Giants’ practice squad, or insurance if the injury to Sterling Shepard lingers.

David Moa is a slightly undersized defensive tackle out of Boise State. At 6-foot-3, 296 pounds, Moa isn’t the kind of mass monster with which the Giants usually stock their defensive line. He has a reputation for good leverage, technique, and hand usage, but isn’t known for his athleticism. Moa played all across the defensive line at Boise State, but wasn’t at the 2020 NFL Draft, and ultimately signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent.

It’s also of note that DB Christian Angulo, who was with the Giants this summer after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Hampton university, is having a workout with the Indianapolis Colts.
