Report: U of Albany OT signs with Giants


At least one of the players who tried out for the Giants at rookie camp over the weekend earned himself an NFL contract.


According to my friends up at WNYT in Albany, former University at Albany tackle Jacob Hobbs has agreed to sign with the Giants. The 6-3, 303-pounder was playing for the Albany Conquest of Arena Football 2. According to the report, he’s been offered a two-year contract with the Giants.


Hobbs would be the 77th player on the Giants’ roster, which would leave them three more open spots to fill (not including the spots that will eventually go to their seven unsigned draft choices). They are expected to announce more signings, and possibly a few roster moves later this afternoon.





Jacob Hobbs set to sign with Giants

Schenectady's Jacob Hobbs will not have to stand behind a fence to watch the Giants practice this summer. That's because Jacob will be on the field.


Hobbs' agent Cal Robinson told Andrew Catalon that the Giants have offered Hobbs a two-year contract. Hobbs is expected to sign in the next few days.


The former UAlbany offensive lineman spent the weekend in New Jersey at Giants Rookie Camp. He will not be able to finish the season with the Albany Conquest.

Giants. New York signed seven free agents, including Jacob Hobbs.


An offensive tackle who played at the University at Albany, Hobbs was signed by the Eagles last spring and appeared in four preseason games before being trimmed from the roster on the final cut in September.


Nate Robinson, a rookie defensive tackle who played for Rutgers and then for Akron, was also signed.
