The New York Giants lost free agent signing, Cody Latimer, to an injury for the remainder of the season this week. His placement on injured reserve puts the Giants in a tricky situation, as Latimer was a stellar blocker in the run game and deep threat when QB Eli Manning decided to air it out.
Replacing him will be no easy feat, considering his primary role.
Big Blue brought in former Cleveland Browns first-round pick Corey Coleman to work out for the team:
The 24-year-old wideout has spent time on three teams this year, and it’s seaming that he will end up on a fourth.
Coleman spent two years in Cleveland after being selected with the 15th overall pick out of Baylor in 2016. The receiver has amassed 56 catches for 718 yards and five touchdowns in 19 career games. His numbers aren’t astounding, but Coleman has displayed serious potential at times.
Bringing on Coleman would surely be a move of desperation, but it’s possible the coaching staff could extract the best out of the young player.
The Giants signed Coleman to a contract on Thursday, waiving Khalif Raymond from the practice squad.
What to look forward:
The Giants will look to bounce back in week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football. The Falcons have one of the league’s worst defenses, which presents Manning and Co. with an opportunity to find their groove on offense. Stopping Matt Ryan and Julio Jones will present a whole different beast.
