LSU’s first-round pick, Malik Nabers, has officially joined the New York Giants. The Giants confirmed the signing of the talented wide receiver on Friday during the minicamp for rookies and free agents.

Selected as the sixth pick in last month’s draft, Nabers secured a four-year contract worth $29.1 million, which includes an $18 million signing bonus.

“It felt surreal,” Nabers expressed. “When I signed the contract, I was a bit shaky and emotional because although one chapter ended, the journey isn’t over yet. But reaching this milestone was a proud moment for me.”

Known for his exceptional catching abilities and skillful route running, Nabers could become the Giants’ first standout receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. was drafted ten years ago. He boasted impressive stats last season at LSU, with 89 catches for 1,569 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Beckham was the last Giants receiver to surpass 1,000 yards in 2018. During his prime years from 2014 to 2016, he consistently recorded over 90 receptions and 1,300 yards per season, tallying a total of 35 touchdowns.

In addition to Nabers, the Giants also inked running back Tyrone Tracy Jr., their fifth-round draft pick from Purdue.

Furthermore, the team signed 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 gets a roster exemption as an international player. Unfortunately, running back Deon Jackson was waived due to injury.
