Giants sign former Mizzou LB Cale Garrett to reserve/future contract


The New York Giants today signed linebacker Cale Garrett to a reserve/future contract.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound undrafted rookie spent the summer with the Tennessee Titans but was released prior to the start of the regular season. The Minnesota Vikings signed him to their practice squad on Sept. 23 and released him on Oct. 27.

Garrett was having a standout season in 2019 as the leader of Mizzou's defense before a torn pectoral tendon cut his senior year short. Despite playing in only five games, he still finished the season ranked fifth on the team with 43 tackles (8.6 per game) and recorded three defensive touchdowns, three interceptions, 5.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, two QB hurries and two pass breakups. He was the SEC's leading tackler at the time of his injury and was named the conference's Defensive Player of the Week twice in the first five weeks.

By signing a reserve/future contract, it guarantees that a player cannot be signed by another team. It is only eligible for players who were not on an active roster at the conclusion of the regular season.

The following players have now been signed to reserve/future contracts:

  • LB Cale Garrett
  • TE Nakia Griffin-Stewart
  • TE Nate Wieting
  • QB Joe Webb
  • RB Jordan Chunn
  • WR Derrick Dillon
  • WR Alex Bachman
  • LB Trent Harris
  • DB Montre Hartage
  • TE Rysen John
  • RB Taquan Mizzell
  • OT David Moa
  • G Chad Slade
  • QB Alex Tanney
  • QB Clayton Thorson
  • LS Carson Tinker
  • G Kenny Wiggins
  • DB Jarren Williams
  • DB Quincy Wilson

The Giants hold the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. View photos of notable players selected in that spot.
