Giants corner Sam Beal has opted out of the 2020 NFL season.
Beal spent most of the 2019 season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. He'll be back in 2021 to compete for a roster spot.
Sam Beal ended Sunday’s 36-20 win over the Dolphins with 11 tackles (eight solo).
Beal started in place of Janoris Jenkins who was recently let go from the team. Beal is an interesting add in all leagues and should be started in deeper formats.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini is reporting that Giants rookie cornerback Sam Beal will miss the 2018 season with a shoulder injury.
The exact nature of the injury or how it occurred is unclear. The Giants recently used a third-round pick to select Beal in the NFL’s supplemental draft. He was expected to be a contributor as a rookie but will now have to wait until 2019.
Cornerback Sam Beal, who was selected by the Giants in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft, has agreed to a four-year rookie contract with the team.
Beal found himself academically ineligible during his last season at Western Michigan, which is how we wound up in the Supplemental Draft. With former first-round pick Eli Apple disappointing in his first two seasons and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie getting released earlier in the offseason, the cornerback-needy Giants are an obvious landing spot for Beal. He will have the opportunity to compete for playing time right away.
The Giants selected Western Michigan CB Sam Beal in the third round of Wednesday’s supplemental draft.
Beal is the first player selected in the supplemental draft since 2015. He immediately adds competition and depth to a position of need. Beal’s man coverage skills make him a nice fit in new defensive coordinator James Bettcher’s system.
