Earlier in the week, the Giants waived undrafted rookie defensive Janzen Jackson, who Tom Coughlin said wasn't performing up to expectations.

They have now filled his spot with another undrafted rookie defensive back, Laron Scott. A cornerback also known for explosive return skills out of Georgia Southern, Scott tweeted the news last night.

Competition at Georgia Southern, an FCS school, isn't top-notch, but the diminutive Scott performed against the best when given the opportunity, scoring on a 95-yard kickoff return against eventual BCS National Champion Alabama last season.

He could provide competition at both kick and punt returner, especially after both Jayron Hosley and Jerrel Jernigan muffed punts in the Giants' preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 5-foot-9, 179-pound Scott had 53 tackles and three interceptions on defense last season for Georgia Southern and an a 4.42 40-yard dash at his pro day.

He was waived by the New Orleans Saints on August 6 despite returning a kick 67 yards against the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame Game the day before.

Boy.....you drop a punt or kick in front of Coughlin and second chances are almost non-existent.

 

It sure would be nice to have a sure-handed, excellent return man that could be trusted to always catch the ball and tear ass down the field. Maybe this guy is the answer.

Yeah, that's been happening for quite awhile and it kind of irks me to be honest.

 

I'm hoping he can be an excellent return man. Good luck to him, he better make sure he doesn't muff.

Maybe Reese pulls one out of his hat and signs Jeff Demps?

 

The Jets are in hot pursuit of him. They've got Tebow recruiting him because the two played together at Florida and are good friends. I'd say the Jets have an inside shot at him if he's going to be signed.

That'd actually be a good move for him, given the Jets have basically no one on Offense.

As it should be. Hosley has an excuse since he is a CB but what the fuck is Jerrnigan's excuse. What's the use of a WR with bad hands? Should have re-signed Thomas.

Couldn't, he had no desire to play anymore and retired from the Bears at 25....

he retired at 25??? did he give a reason.....was he injured?

 

He said that he had accomplished his childhood dream of contributing to a SB win and that personal goals such as Pro Bowls and statistics never really meant much to him. Said he wanted to move to the next chapter of his "real life" and give up the game while he had his health. Definitely a dude who never really had the passion to be a football player. Or, if he did, he lost it---which surprises me one year removed from the SB.

Hey all power to him Bro... we don't get to see most of the daily nagging injuries these guys suffer from...I heard that Strahan has trouble putting on his own socks and has a hard time writing because of all the finger dislocations/fractures/sprains his suffered with from the game... Thank GOD he was there for the two fumble recoveries against the 69'ers... :)

Good for him, better to retire than be forced out on crutches.
