With free-agent receiver Rueben Randle’s return and with rehabbing receiver Victor Cruz’s quest to be a productive receiver all up in the air, the New York Giants have begun adding prospects in hopes of finding someone to complement star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
One such prospect is 27-year-old French-born Anthony Dable’, whom American Football International reports has signed a reserve/futures contract with Big Blue.
The 6’5”, 215-pound Dable’ most recently played for the Braunschweig (Germany) New Yorker Lions, for whom he recorded 145 catches and 32 touchdowns in his stint with the team, including 51 receptions for 857 yards and 13 touchdowns in 10 games played for the Lions in 2014.
Dable’ was one of two European football prospects who recently worked out for the Giants, according to NFLDraftDiamonds.com. British-born tight end Harry Innis was the other.
According to AFI, Dable’ had signed to play the 2016 with France’s Aix en Provence Argonautes until the Giants came calling.
With free agency and the draft still looming, Dable’s chances of making the 53-man roster seem like the longest of long-shots. However, he’ll at least get a chance to begin familiarizing himself with the Giants’ offense in order to improve his chances.
