Giants host five veterans on tryout basis at rookie minicamp
The New York Giants are conducting rookie minicamp this weekend at their practice facility in East Rutherford. There are five veterans in the mix of draftees, UDFAs, invitees, and walk-ons.
Quarterback Bryce Perkins, a former Virginia star who spent the last three seasons with the Los Angeles Rams. He spent the first two seasons on the bench and did not take a snap until last year when he played in five games, making one start. He is the brother of former Giants running back Paul Perkins.
Cornerbacks Nigel Warrior and Iman Marshall are also in camp. They both have ties to defensive coordinator Wink Martindale.
