Giants bringing back Orleans Darkwa


The Giants are keeping running back Orleans Darkwa with a new one-year deal, Newsday reported on Thursday.

Darkwa, 25, made two starts and played in 10 games last season. He ran for two touchdowns last season, bringing his career total to four.

He played in all 16 games in 2015. Darkwa played in four games with the Dolphins in 2014 before landing with the Giants, and he’ll again get a shot to play on special teams and earn a spot in the running back rotation in 2017.

    Not a huge signing, but a solid deal. Role players are important to any and all teams…

    Would have preferred Christine Michael or Darkwa.

    If this guy makes the 53 man roster then the Giants have not done enough to upgrade their running game.

    Continuity and depth signing

    They still have no running game and can’t protect their aging QB but over-the-hill Brandon Marshall is definitely the piece that this currently constructed roster needed to put them over the top ! ! !

    No not the cold blooded assassin from the adventure series, this is Orleans Darkwa the football player.
