View Full Version : Giants sign CB Laron Scott

08-16-2012, 09:30 AM
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.

Sounds like a good signing. Anyone else know a little about him?

From that article it sounds more like TC is showing his disappointment at Hosley and Jernigan being back to receive kicks...

Good return by Scott, but this one's mostly due to lousy coverage by the Cards.
