With the return of the NFL season comes also the return of workout Tuesday's. And with injuries riddling them across the offensive line, the New York Giants hosted at least two offensive linemen (could have been more) today in Zebrie Sanders and Steven Baker.
Sanders, a fifth-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in the 2012 NFL Draft, was released over the weekend after spending his entire rookie season on Injured Reserve (IR) due to a hip injury. Prior to that, he played in 37 games as a member of the Florida State Seminoles.
Baker, not to be confused with Stephen Baker "The Touchdown Maker", was originally signed by the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012. His tenure with the team was short-lived as he was released in August of last year. He went on to sign with the Arizona Cardinals where he became a member of their practice squad. Earlier this year, Baker signed with the Kansas City Chiefs but, again, was released during final cuts.
Baker spent his college days at East Carolina where he appeared in 42 games as the team's right tackle and on special teams.
There's been no word on other players the Giants might have hosted or if they offered contracts to anyone who visited, but the team was expected to host a large group of players on Tuesday.
