Former Rutgers Cornerback Brandon Bing Added To Giants Practice Squad

After the first part of his NFL journey began with trips to Denver and Buffalo, former Rutgers cornerback Brandon Bing returned to the Garden State on Tuesday, when the New York Giants signed him to their practice squad in order to offer some depth after Justin Tryon went on the injured reserved list.

According to this feature story on the Giants' official website, Bing had been working as a personal trainer at the Power Train Sports Institute in Pennsylvania when he got the call requesting his services. Bing played in all four preseason games for the Denver Broncos after signing as an undrafted free agent after his senior season of 2010. Bing was waived before the season started, then signed to the Buffalo Bills' practice squad and waived Oct. 1.

In other Rutgers alumni news, defensive end George Johnson (2006-2009) made his NFL debut for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago, while cornerback Joe Porter (2003-2006) played in each of the Raiders' first six games, but was released in order to make room on the roster for Terrelle Pryor.

Rutgers Players In The NFL: Joe Lefeged Makes Colts' Roster

Former Rutgers University safety Joe Lefeged has succeeded in his bid to make the Indianapolis Colts' 2011 season-opening roster as an undrafted free agent. Lefeged turned his versatility not only as a defensive back, but as a potential kick and punt returner, into a spot on the Indianapolis roster.

In four preseason games, Lefeged made 14 tackles. He returned two punts for 10 yards and led Indianapolis in kickoff returns with four returns for 103 yards, an average of 25.8 yards per return.

Several other former Scarlet Knights were also vying for roster spots on NFL teams. SB Nation's Rutgers website, On The Banks, tracked those players over the weekend as cuts were made. Use OTB's tracker to see who made it and who did not.

Former New York Giants center Shaun O'Hara, released at the beginning of training camp, still has not signed with an NFL team. O'Hara reportedly is still not healthy enough to play following a 2010 season in which he battled foot and ankle injuries.
