Just now: The New York Giants announce the signing of a new running back..

The 5’10”, 199-pound running back Jacob Saylors, who just finished his season in the United Football League (UFL), was signed by the New York Giants as a free agent. He was first signed by the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2023 NFL Draft. The Bengals waived him in August, and the Atlanta Falcons signed him to their Practice Squad in October 2023. The Falcons waived/injured Saylors in January 2024. This spring, Saylors played nine games for the St. Louis Battlehawks in the UFL, rushing for 461 yards and five touchdowns on 94 carries. He also caught 23 passes for 152 yards and three touchdowns. The team also placed wide receiver Chase Cota, who broke his collarbone during the recently concluded mini-camp, on Injured Reserve.

In January 2024, Cota will sign a reserve/future contract. Following the 2023 NFL Draft, the 6’4″, 200-pound Cota was first signed by the Detroit Lions as an undrafted rookie free agency. After being released by the Lions in late August, he played for a while on the practice squads of the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs.
