EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Wide receiver Kadarius Toney, the Giants' first selection in the 2021 NFL draft, has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The Giants' rookies reported yesterday for training camp. Toney is following the NFL protocols by isolating and participating in meetings remotely.
The Giants selected Toney from the University of Florida with the 20th selection in this year's draft after trading with the Chicago Bears to move back from No. 11. A 6-0, 193-pounder, Toney played in 38 games with 13 starts for the Gators. He caught 120 passes for 1,490 yards (12.4-yard avg.) and 12 touchdowns with a long reception of 66 yards.
*The Giants have signed running back Mike Weber and defensive back Jordyn Peters.
Weber, 5-10 and 211 pounds, was a seventh-round draft choice in 2019 by the Dallas Cowboys, then coached by Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. Weber spent that entire season on Dallas' practice squad. He has also been with Kansas City and Green Bay and was released by the Packers on June 9.
In three seasons at Ohio State, Weber rushed for 2,757 yards and 24 touchdowns and caught 54 passes for 297 yards.
Peters, 6-1 and 200 pounds, was signed as a rookie free agent by the Jets on May 2 and waived on July 2. In his four seasons at Auburn, Peters played in 50 games and had 101 tackles (60 solo), 2.0 sacks and one interception.
