Giants sign a college speedster with little football experience

The Giants signed some other tryout players faster, but none of them were faster than the guy they added today.

Via Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record, the Giants have added wide receiver Kevin Snead after last weekend’s tryouts. They also announced they had released offensive lineman Martin Wallace to make room for Snead.

Snead was once dubbed the “fastest man in college football” after a reported 4.22-second 40 during his days at Carson-Newman. He wasn’t invited to the combine, perhaps because he barely played football and only caught five passes in college.

But the Giants figured it was worth a longer look, and with rosters at 90, why not.

    Well the speed isnt needed to streak down the side line, its for speeding back to the ball from Eli’s under throws

    ^ I was thinking the opposite. Speed is needed to catch up with the overthrows. Eli still has a strong arm and can heave the pigskin.

    Stash him on the practice squad for a year, learn the offense while being Davis webb’s caddy and see if we have our own version of tyreek hill for next year……
