Giants to sign Kregg Lumpkin

The Giants suffered a blow to their backfield on Sunday night when Andre Brown broke his leg.

It left the team with just three running backs on the active roster, a number that includes fullback Henry Hynoski. Given Ahmad Bradshaw’s chronic foot issues and internal skepticism about rookie David Wilson’s fitness for an expansive role in the offense at this time, it seemed the Giants would need to add someone to the mix for the rest of the season.

They appear to have found that someone. According to multiple Giants beat writers, the Giants have decided to sign Kregg Lumpkin. Lumpkin worked out for the team during their bye week and again on Tuesday, beating out other veterans who worked out for the team like Ryan Grant, Ryan Torain and Cadillac Williams for the gig.

Lumpkin spent 2011 with the Buccaneers, rushing for 105 yards on 31 carries and catching 41 passes for 291 yards. Lumpkin signed with the Packers in 2008 as an undrafted free agent and started this year with the Seahawks before getting released.

    I trust Jerry Reese, the best GM in the NFL.

    I like it. Physical, downhill runner for redzone situations.

    Another RB who won’t do anything to the Redskins defense. Redskins win by 2 TDs.

    “Another RB who won’t do anything to the Redskins defense. Redskins win by 2 TDs.”

    If Eli drops another 300+ on them, it wont matter.

    I don’t know what he looks like now but he had a few nice runs in the preseason for the ‘hawks. Inside runner with average speed, good strength. Good luck to him.

    Want to put money on it hero…talk is cheap and if you really believe that then you are not watching the same NFL that I am watching.

    Hey LogicalVoice….I think you forgot about the passing game that beat your team last meeting. Cruz 131 receiving yards, Eli manning – 337 passing yards… Now what were you saying about your defense?

    Can someone please explain to me and I’m sure to a few others why “logicalvoicesays” has so much to say about the Superbowl Champions? Is it because his team haven’t been to one and he want to be apart of a winning team?

    C’mon guys please don’t feed the troll.

    Anyone who has caught that many passes, knows how to pass protect.

    Which is what scares (or lack thereof) the powers that be, concerning Wilson.

    IN am 100% sure that Tom and Jerry had this taken care of prior to going home Sunday Night.

    Jerry Resse not Jones does a great job with personal.

    As to the Deadskin fan
    Shut Up
    In a few years you will be able to talk but for right now let the men do the talking RG is still a pup and he has to show a lot more before he can carry Eli’s jock.
    That is if he does not get hit to many times.

    I want to feed the troll though. Cause nothing is better than getting expectations high and the watching them get dashed. Ask eagles and cowboy fans over the last 10 years. Only constant in this division is eli and the G-MEN!!!!

    Always thought the Packers gave up on Kregg too soon. Decent straight line one-cut back with decent hands. Good luck to him,
