EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today welcomed their second wide receiver to the roster in three days when they were awarded C.J. Board off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Board, 6-1 and 181 pounds, played four games for the Jaguars in 2019, when he caught two passes for 31 yards.
He made his NFL debut at Cincinnati on Oct. 20. Two weeks later, Board picked up his first reception, a 23-yarder vs. Houston. He next played on Dec. 8, when he caught an eight-yard pass at Oakland. Board's final game was vs. Indianapolis on Dec. 19, when he was not targeted.
Board originally entered the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted rookie from Chattanooga. He was released just prior to the season and did practice squad stints with Tennessee and Cleveland and Jacksonville the following year before the Jaguars signed him to a reserve/future contract after the 2018 season.
At Chattanooga, Board started 47 games and totaled 146 catches for 2,032 yards and 10 touchdowns. As a senior in 2018, he set career highs with 46 receptions, 725 yards and five scores.
On Tuesday, the Giants signed rookie free agent Cody White of Michigan State.
