Jake Fromm is the latest Georgia Bulldog to join forces with the New York Giants, signing with the franchise’s practice squad on Wednesday, per multiple reports.

Fromm had spent the past two seasons on Buffalo’s practice squad after the Bills drafted him in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Giants are adding Fromm on the heels of starting quarterback Daniel Jones suffering a strained neck in New York’s 13-7 win over Philadelphia. Veteran Mike Glennon could start for the Giants against Miami this week if Jones is unable to play.

New York coach Joe Judge has an affinity for Georgia players, as Fromm is the seventh the Giants have signed.

Judge coached alongside Bulldogs’ coach Kirby Smart at Alabama under Nick Saban from 2009-11, serving as the special teams assistant for the Tide.

The former Georgia players with the Giants are:

• Jake Fromm

• J.R. Reed

• Azeez Ojulari

• Andrew Thomas

• Tae Crowder

• Lorenzo Carter

• Isaiah Wilson (practice squad)

Smart was among those who heavily endorsed Judge for the Giants’ head coaching job when he was hired in January of 2020.
