On Monday (as opposed to Tuesday), the New York Giants hosted running back Kendall Gaskins for a workout, reports Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.
Gaskins, who was an undrafted rookie free agent out of Richmond, initially signed with the Buffalo Bills in late April. However, the team released him in late August, just prior to the start of the regular season. He was later signed by the Tennessee Titans to their practice squad, but that, too, was short-lived.
The four-year Richmond starter was a monster at the FCS level, totaling 38 touchdowns and 1,745 rushing yards during his college career. He was projected by some to play fullback in the NFL, but that never appeared to be an option with either the Bills or Titans, although he did turn some heads with powerful runs in practice for both teams.
Despite his size (6'1'', 238 lbs.) and power, Gaskins has also displayed very soft hands and was routinely used as a pass-catching weapon in college.
His workout with the Giants is not to be misread — they routinely workout players at all positions just to get a feel for what's out there in the event they need to fill holes from the free agent pool. As of now, Gaskins has not been offered a contract with Big Blue.
There's been no additional word on other players working out for the team this week.
