Kalil Pimpleton says he’ll do whatever it takes to help Giants

·1 min read

The New York Giants added an interesting player to their practice squad this week in former Detroit Lions wide receiver Kalil Pimpleton.

Pimpleton was signed as an undrafted rookie out of Central Michigan by the Lions this spring and was waived during final roster cuts last week. While at training camp, his exploits were captured on HBO’s Hard Knocks, of whom the Lions were the subjects this summer.

Pimpleton recently told TMZ Sports that he intends to hit the ground running with the Giants and will do whatever it takes to help his new team.

“I’m a New York Giant and I’m ready to get to work,” Pimpleton said.

He also believes the spotlight that Hard Knocks shone on him helped him get recognized by the Giants. “Any publicity is good publicity.”

Pimpleton may not be called upon this year to help the big club but his game bears a striking resemblance to that of Wan’Dale Robinson, the Giants’ second-round pick in this year’s NFL draft. Both players are small in stature and possess mercurial traits with the football in their hands.

Here’s a quick sample of what Pimpleton can do on the football field.
