    Can Jordan Williams Crack Giants’ Roster?

    Jordan Williams, an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee on his third franchise in three NFL seasons, would seem like a long shot to make the New York Giants’ roster as part of a talented, deep defensive line.

Tonight marks the potential debut of two of Philadelphia’s key new players: Alshon Jeffery and Ronald Darby. Speaking of Darby, the player the Eagles traded for him won’t be suiting up tonight. Unfortunately, Jordan Matthews is dealing with a “week-to-week” chest injury. Doug Pederson said he’s leaning towards playing
