Giants sign first member of their draft class

The Giants wasted little time getting the “JPP of tight ends” under contract.

Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the team has reached agreement on a four-year deal with tight end Adrien Robinson. The deal is contingent on Robinson passing a physical at the team’s rookie minicamp this weekend. Robinson was one of two fourth-round picks by the Giants.

Robinson didn’t play a major role in the passing game at Cincinnati, catching just 12 passes last season. The Giants were clearly impressed by his athleticism, though, and General Manager Jerry Reese made the comparison to Jason Pierre-Paul quoted up top in his post-draft comments to the media. Robinson will definitely get a chance to make good on that perceived potential with the Giants. He will join Martellus Bennett and Bear Pascoe as the healthy Giants tight ends this summer while Travis Beckum and Jake Ballard each recover from serious knee injuries suffered in the Super Bowl.

The Giants have six more draft picks left to sign, led by first-round pick David Wilson.

    My man Jerry Reese getting things done, business as usual. Only 5 more to go.

    Does that comment mean he is a very good pass rusher for a tight end?

    Because if someone is really good at doing something that isn’t actually part of the skill set required for their position, why didn’t he call him the Tebow of tight ends?

    Or is that because Tebow is actually the Tebow of tight ends?

    Christian Hopkins is also a good option at TE

    I’m continually amazed at how bad people are at reading articles. Cooklyn, it says literally one inch above your comment that the Giants have six players left to sign. I don’t understand how people on this sure expect to have productive discussions of football when almost no one actually reads the articles

    Rookie minicamp this weekend… That number of unsigned rookies will come down hard by Monday

    I don’t think he will see a lot of playing time this year with the Bennett signing and Bear showing some flashes in the playoffs. I think TC will be more comfortable with those guys. In other news the Travis Beckhem experiment is over.

    If there is one thing I have learned from all these years of being a Giant’s fan, I trust the scouting staff and General Manager to find the right guys for the team. Are they all 100% perfect? Of course not, they aren’t Kreskin after all. But get us to the big game on average every 5 years – they’re doing a dang good job!!
