With the departure of Derrick Ward and injuries hampering the New York Giants’ backfield, their Tuesday tryouts included visits from veteran tailbacks.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Dominic Rhodes and T.J. Duckett worked out for the Giants.
Rhodes was a surprise cut by the Bills before the season. It was presumed he’d have a spot on the roster, given the three-game suspension being served by starter Marshawn Lynch.
Duckett found himself bounced out of Seattle, given the arrival of Edgerrin James.
UPDATE: Neither will likely be signed, because as Rosenthal pointed out yesterday the Giants claimed Gartrell Johnson on waivers. I’m bracing for the e-mail from Rosenthal that says, “Thanks for reading PFT.”
