(WTNH)–Former UConn wide receiver Geremy Davis appears to be on the verge of making the New York Giants roster, after yet another terrific performance in Thursday’s preseason game against the Patriots.
Davis, whom many close followers have noted has stood out during training camp, hauled in three catches for 65 yards on Thursday, including a 40-yard touchdown.
The Giants even tweeted that coach Tom Coughlin was impressed with his play:
Coach Coughlin very pleased with the play of Landon Collins and Geremy Davis last night. #Giants

The team likely didn’t expect the former UConn star, who was selected in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, to contribute much in the passing game this season, especially because the Giants already have a wealth of talent at wide receiver, including Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz.
But it would be tough, some have said impossible, to keep Davis off of the 53-man roster with the way he’s played this preseason (11 receptions, 132 yards, 33.0 ypg, 12.0 ypc).
At the very least, it appears the Giants will give him a chance to make plays on special teams.
