Scott, who went undrafted in April, signed as a free agent with the New Orleans Saints and spent the majority of the offseason and training camp with the team. He participated in the Hall of Fame game (see video above), but was ultimately released earlier this month to make room for wide receiver Kevin Hardy.
An All-American standout at Georgia Southern, Scott is commonly referred to as a "pocket sized ball of fire." The 5'9'', 179 lbs. return specialist is often likened to Darren Sproles, and will compete with Domenik Hixon, Jerrel Jernigan, David Wilson and others for kick and punt return duties.
By the end of his college career, Scott had returned 81 kickoffs for over 2,200 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 154 tackles, 48 passes defended and 12 interceptions.
Scott will likely take the place of Shaun Rogers on the Giants' 90-man roster.
