On Wednesday, the New York Giants made their first move of the new offseason by signing all six members of their Practice Squad to reserve/futures contracts. Those players include cornerback LaRon Scott, guard Stephen Goodin, tackle Levy Adcock, tight end Larry Donnell, defensive end Matt Broha and tackle Matt McCants.
McCants may be the most recognized name on that list as he was the Giants' sixth-round pick out of UAB in the 2012 NFL Draft.
All players signed to reserve/futures deals will be under contract for the subsequent season. And although these six players were on the Giants' practice squad, they are free to sign with any NFL team once the season ends. Accordingly, the Giants wanted to get them signed as early as possible, and under NFL rules, are allowed to do so prior to the start of free agency, which officially begins on March 12th.
Only players not on a team's active roster are eligible for reserve/future contracts.
