EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Travis Rudolph has overcome the odds, tragedy and disappointment in the past four months to put himself on the verge of making the New York Giants.
The 21-year-old rookie free agent from Florida State is days away from the NFL’s final cut, and his chances of making the team look good. All he has done since reporting to camp late last month is make plays in practice. His six catches in three preseason games are tied for the team lead, and his 111 yards receiving and 18.5 yard average are tops on the team.
However, his play is only half the story.
