Giants add WR Travis Rudolph, LB Nordly Capi to practice squad

Posted Sep 4, 2017

The Giants have signed WR Travis Rudolph and LB Nordly Capi to the practice squad:


The Giants this morning added the final two pieces to their 10-man practice squad when they signed wide receiver Travis Rudolph and linebacker Nordly “Cap” Capi.

Rudolph is well-known to Giants fans. The former Florida State standout – who famously befriended an autistic boy in a school lunchroom last year – was one of the team’s most productive players in the preseason. Rudolph finished with a team-high 157 receiving yards, and his nine catches were tied for the Giants’ second-highest total, just one behind tight end Matt LaCosse. He was waived on Saturday.

Capi, 6-3 and 247 pounds, spent most of the 2016 season on the practice squad of the Arizona Cardinals, who released him on Saturday. In the just-completed preseason, he had 13 tackles (11 solo), 1.5 sacks, and eight quarterback hits. Capi entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015, and has been on the practice squads of the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons. Capi began his collegiate career at Colorado State before transferring to Akron, where he had 70 tackles and seven sacks in two seasons.

Rudolph and Capi join the eight players signed yesterday to the practice squad: offensive lineman Adam Bisnowaty, defensive end Jordan Williams, wide receiver Marquis Bundy, offensive lineman Jon Halapio, linebacker Curtis Grant, cornerbacks Donte Deayon and Tim Scott, and safety Ryan Murphy.
