New York Giants Sign WR Dan DePalma to Practice Squad

The New York Giants completed their personnel shuffle on Thursday, signing wide receiver Dan DePalma to their practice squad following news that David Douglas had been signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 53-man roster.

DePalma, who went undrafted out of West Chester in 2011, spent time on the Giants' practice squad a year ago and performed well in training camp this season. Like Douglas, DePalma had made some noise in camp and was in consideration for the 53-man roster. To better his odds, DePalma also volunteered to play in the defensive backfield, which the coaches briefly experimented with. In the end, however, DePalma was released and had remained a free agent until Thursday.

During the preseason, DePalma hauled in three passes for 46 yards. He also returned one punt for four yards, and made a solo special teams tackle.

    The Skins are making the Cowboys their b-tch. They look like us playing the Eagles.

    I cannot fathom why defenses bite on a play fake to a running back allegedly running straight into a pile and don’t overpersue a former track star in RG3 every single time.

    Every single time you break free, you hit RG3, you let someone else clean up the running back.

  4.  Krow says:

    It looks sexy now. But eventually they’re going to get RG3 killed.

    •  Dirt says:

      If there were a player to play against RG3, it’s Osi, who (allegedly) always passes the running back on his way to the quarterback.

    Nicks feeling better:

    “All gone,” Nicks said when asked about the swelling in his knee. “Feeling good. Ready to get after it.”

    “I’m pretty close,” Nicks added when asked about being close to full strength at this point in the season. “This is as close as I’m gonna be. If this is it, this is 100 percent.”

    So it’s all right there for the Giants. Win on Sunday and take a 2-game lead with five to play and get pretty good position for wild card slots.

    But I’m increasingly convinced that 9-7 wins the division. In any case, win two Sundays in succession now and they’re pretty much home.

    And this just in. Give thanks before the day is gone that you are not a Jets fan.

    So interesting to hear Joe Buck and Troy Aikman contort themselves into a pretzel making excuses for Romo’s picks. Things like shaky line play, no running game(mentioned several times) and forcing things downfield because they’re always coming from behind. Hmm…that sounds familiar, except Eli doesn’t get a pass for playing and winning a SB under those very same circumstances, no, he’s just turnover prone and a notch below the elite like Aaron Rodgers. By the way this is an interesting read on Mr. Rodgers comeback failures.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!
