The New York Giants kick the tires on a veteran player at a position of need by working out former New York Jets’ offensive guard Vladimir Ducasse.
The New York Giants continue to investigate options to help solve their paper-thin offensive line depth. The team brought in veteran offensive guard Vladimir Ducasse for a workout, in attempt see if the former Jet has anything left in the tank.
Over six NFL seasons, Ducasse has played in 79 games, while starting 22 of those contests. In 2015, the 28-year old played in all 16 games, starting 11 of them. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens in the offseason, but was released on September 3 during the Raven’s final cut downs.
Last season Ducasse finished with a Pro Football Focus grade of 52.8, good for the 61st best mark among offensive guards. In comparison, New York’s current starter at the right guard position, John Jerry, finished 55th in the league with a 55.0 grade.
Ducasse has been around the league for a while but hasn’t really had much success as a pro. If the Giants feel he’s worth bringing aboard at some point during the year, it would only be as depth for an injured player. His versatility, being able to play both the guard and tackle positions, could carry some value if the Giants were to lose anyone to IR during the season.
