He did, but I wouldn't have expected to him light it up in his first action since returning from a torn Achilles. Give him a training camp.

Didn't look Healthy!

Was a good pro when in Mia, hope leg gets stronger. Achilles is a tough injury takes at least a year.
he looked pretty good in spots

better tackler than a lot of guys we had back there

I was a betting man, I'd put a modest wager on him playing pretty well this year. Achilles injury recovery is more than a year long process. Modest, being the key word.

This week is like...

a condensed version of the Ben McAdoo season. I don't know what the hell is going on.

Another guy who can make the team in camp...or not.

I assume he gets a small bonus and minimum salary. We'll see.
Lippett has the size

to line up at Safety

He wasn't turning his hips very well in the little action I witnessed last season when he lined up at corner

Did we even make a serious offer?

won't judge him by last year. He was likely still recovering from his Achilles tear, and the whole defense was awful.

Itís BW fucking Webb, not Deion Sanders. Some of you guys are absurd.
Wow  
XBRONX : 3/14/2019 9:41 pm : link
did some of you watch any Giant football last year? Lippett looked like trash last year? He played one freaking game.
It's not his role, but  
Chocco : 3/14/2019 10:20 pm : link
He might also be the 4th or 5th best WR on this team

re-signing.

Lippett played for Michigan State after a stellar high school career where he played DB and WR. At Michigan State he was a DB as a freshman, but for the next 3 years he was a WR at Michigan.

When the Dolphins drafted him (5th round), they converted him back to Corner. He did well, making the Dolphins starting roster as a converted rookie and lead them in interceptions (and had 67 tackles).

As mentioned above, he suffered a torn Achilles which has really derailed his career. The Giants signed him last year, but he was only in one game.

He is a HUGE corner (6'2" at the 2015 Combine) and if he is finally healthy, he could be a nice surprise.

To summarize-Big Ten College WR-5th round draft pick-converted to CB by Miami-makes the starting team as a rookie CB and excels. Shows the Giants enough in 2018 to sign him for 2019.

Lets root for this kid.
