Less than a year after scoring three touchdowns in his debut as a member of the Patriots Reuben Foster Jersey , running back Mike Gillislee is a free agent. And Saints running back Mark Ingram is suspended. And that could be enough to get Gillislee his next gig.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Gillislee is visiting the Saints on Sunday, one day after not making it to the 53-man roster in New England.
The Patriots signed Gillislee as a restricted free agent in 2017 Kendall Fuller Jersey , making an offer that the Bills didn’t match. For whatever reason, Gillislee fell out of favor after that three-score first effort.
But with Ingram gone for four games and with the Saints needing to not overwork Alvin Kamara while Ingram is gone Kendell Beckwith Jersey , Gillislee could help.
Because he has four accrued seasons, signing Gillislee before Week One means essentially guaranteeing his full-season salary. So it will be interesting to see what the Saints will pay to a guy who may end up being a short-term stop-gap through the first month of the season.
The Giants claimed six players on Sunday and those additions mean that a handful of players who thought they made the team on Saturday will find out that they’re actually unemployed.
It wasn’t hard to predict that a quarterback would be part of that group after the Giants kept four of them through Saturday’s cuts. The betting favorite to wind up out of a job might have been Alex Tanney Lance Kendricks Jersey , but the team went a different way.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports that the Giants are waiving quarterback Davis Webb a year after drafting him in the third round.
Webb did not appear in any games as a rookie, although it seemed to be Ben McAdoo’s intention to get him some work before McAdoo was fired days after benching Eli Manning. Webb was 28-of-53 for 283 yards and a touchdown in the preseason.
