Javon Leake signs with the New York Giants as a UDFA
Maryland RB Javon Leake is signing with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent.
In his three-year career at Maryland, Leake averaged a ridiculous 7.9 yards per carry. He and fellow RB Anthony McFarland Jr., who was drafted by the Steelers, worked in tandem in an unconventional Maryland offense that never really utilized a workhorse back. In his final year at Maryland, Leake rushed 102 times for 736 yards and eight TDs. He also added 804 yards and two scores on kick returns. He’s lightning quick and has good burst at the second level and has a real shot to earn a roster spot with the Giants this season.
