Wide receiver C.J. Board is re-signing with the New York Giants. ESPN first reported the signing early Friday morning, and Big Blue View was able to confirm the move, per source.

Board, 27, played in all 16 games for the Giants in 2020. He caught 11 passes for 101 yards, an average of 9.2 yards per catch. Board also returned two kickoffs and one punt for the Giants. He played 169 offensive snaps (17 percent) and 81 special teams snaps (20 percent).

Board’s only other NFL experience was four games for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019. He had two receptions in those four games.

Board will likely compete for a roster spot with players like Austin Mack and Dante Pettis, who finished the season on the Giants’ 53-man roster, as well as Alex Bachman and Derrick Dillon, practice squad players a year ago who were signed to reserve/futures contracts.

Not an exciting move for the Giants, but one that creates depth and competition. The Giants already moved on from wide receivers Golden Tate and Cody Core this offseason.
