Giants claim C.J. Board off waivers from Jacksonville

Earlier on Thursday, the New York Giants decided to go into the waiver wire and pick up Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver C.J. Board. Board was released Wednesday by the Jaguars.

He came into the league as an undrafted free agent 2017 out of Chattanooga. During his time in college, he had started 47 games, caught 146 passes for 2,032 yards and hauled in 10 touchdowns. He ranked sixth all-time in receptions and fifth all-time in yards for a Chattanooga wide receiver.

C.J. Board has jumped around the league, spending time with the Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans, and Cleveland Browns. He finally found himself on an active roster when he came to Jacksonville.

He appeared in four games last year, but mostly on special teams. Although he was targeted only three times, he had two receptions for 31 yards last season.

Board enters a crowded room of wide receivers competing for roster spots. Cody Core, Corey Coleman, Austin Mack, Derek Dillon, David Sills V, Cody White, Tony Brown, Alex Bachman, and Binjimen Victor are some of the wide receivers he will be competing against to find himself on the roster at the end of the summer for the Giants.

The Giants will have to make a corresponding roster move in order to fully complete this transaction.
