The New York Giants added two wide receivers on Saturday in an effort to restock their depleted unit, which has seen Corey Coleman tear his ACL, Golden Tate get suspended and Sterling Shepard break his thumb over the past 24 hours.
The Giants have also seen injuries to their depth pile up as Darius Slayton (hamstring), Brittan Golden (groin) and Alex Wesley (PUP) remain sidelined.
The two newest additions come by way of Amba Etta-Tawo, who is a familiar face, and T.J. Jones, who is new on the scene.
Here are five quick things to know about Jones.
Jones enrolled early at Notre Dame and as a true freshman, worked his way onto the field and never looked back.
In 51 college games, Jones hauled in 181 receptions for 2,429 yards and 19 touchdowns. In total, he gained over 2,504 yards from scrimmage and added two additional touchdowns through the air.
Jones’ best year came as a senior when he recorded 70 receptions for 1,108 yards and nine touchdowns.
In the 2013 BCS National Championship game, Jones recorded six receptions for 90 yards in a 42-14 loss to Alabama.
