Breaking: LSU’s First-Round Pick, Malik Nabers Sends An Emotional Heartfelt Message To The Fighting Tigers… 

Malik Nabers, LSU’s prized wide receiver, has officially embarked on a new journey with the New York Giants. The Giants sealed the deal with Nabers, their first-round draft selection, confirming the signing during Friday’s minicamp for rookies and free agents.

Picked as the sixth overall selection in last month’s draft, Nabers secured a lucrative four-year contract valued at $29.1 million, inclusive of an $18 million signing bonus.

Reflecting on the momentous occasion, Nabers shared, “It felt surreal. When I signed the contract, I was overcome with emotions. While one chapter closes, the journey continues. Yet, achieving this milestone stands as a proud moment for me.”

Renowned for his exceptional catching prowess and precise route running, Nabers holds the potential to fill the Giants’ receiver role with distinction, reminiscent of Odell Beckham Jr., drafted a decade ago. His impressive performance at LSU last season, amassing 89 catches for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns, attests to his talent.

Beckham, the last Giants receiver to surpass 1,000 yards in 2018, enjoyed a prime period from 2014 to 2016, consistently exceeding 90 receptions and 1,300 yards per season, totaling 35 touchdowns.

Alongside Nabers, the Giants solidified their roster with running back Tyrone Tracy Jr., their fifth-round draft pick from Purdue.

Furthermore, the team welcomed eight rookie free agents: Ayir Asante from Wyoming and John Jiles from West Florida as wide receivers, Jake Kubas from North Dakota State as a guard, Marcellus Johnson from Missouri as a tackle, Casey Rogers from Oregon as a defensive tackle, Ovie Oghoufo from LSU as a defensive end, Alex Johnson from UCLA as a defensive back, and Jude McAtamney as a kicker, who receives a roster exemption as an international player. Regrettably, running back Deon Jackson was waived due to injury.
