Giants give us a peek at David Wilson in OTAs

AP

In May, you see things on a practice field that might not mean much in September.

But in the case of Giants running back David Wilson, any sighting is a good one.

On a day when their OTAs were closed to the “regular” media, the team-owned website tweeted out a video of Wilson taking a handoff from quarterback Josh Freeman.

Wilson is working his way back from offseason neck surgery, and the Giants have given themselves cover if he doesn’t come back. After signing Rashad Jennings in free agency and drafting Andre Williams in the fourth round (where they’ve found good backs before), they can view him as a bit of a bonus if he’s able to return.

But for a guy whose career might have appeared in jeopardy with the news of neck surgery, the simple act of taking a non-contact rep and getting through it is a positive sign.

  1. How is this guy still in the league? The Giants are so bad that David Wilson is still on their team, that’s pretty sad. This is Davids last year in the NFL, mark it.

  2. How many people on this thread so far have seen their team win a ring in their lifetime? Let alone 4? You talked crap about Jacobs too…

    You fools are still so MAD at the Giants for winning. We laugh at you. Especially Eagles fans.

  3. So the Josh Freeman era begins with a visit from former Giant David Wilson. Maybe Wilson wanted to inspire his former teammates by stepping on the field one last time.

    If Freeman can lead the Giants to a 6-10 record in this rebuilding year I’d consider it a success.

  4. Eli practiced. True blue warrior. Nassib threw a beautiful bomb to Beckham. Giants are deep at RB if Wilson can play. McAdoos offense appears very up tempo. All good in the land of Giants. Big Blue just about due for another SB.

  5. I don’t why why people are bagging on David Wilson so much. So what if he sucks – the running back pool is “deep.” #3backups does not = deep.

  6. With Jennings as the feature back Wilson will be utilized more in the passing game to take advantage of his speed.Tiki Barber was a fumbler also (4 against the eagles in an important game) until Coughlin worked with him and he’ll do the same with Wilson.

  7. ELI DUE FOR A GOOD YEAR AND GIANTS DE IS THE STRONGEST PART OF THIS TEAM.DE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS JUST LET ELI BE A GAME MANAGER AND WE WIN THIS DIVISION. GIANTS DE IS GOING TO BE PUTTIN PRESSURE ALL DAY .UNLEASH THE BOYS PERRY AND PUT MASSIVE PRESSURE ON QB S ,YOU HAVE THE BACK END TO HOLD UP.

  8. This guy is Tiki minus the blocking, receiving, football knowledge and leadership, but plus a lot of speed… If he could learn to block, and be a good study of the game he may become nearly (and I say that very loosely) as good, if not half as good as Tiki, which is saying a lot… more like he could become Ahmad Bradshaw
