XFL players are allowed to sign with NFL teams, and the Giants took advantage of that by signing DB Dravon Askew-Henry to a two-year deal, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Askew-Henry played for the New York Guardians, so he already knows what it's like to play at MetLife Stadium. And clearly he did enough for the Giants to believe he can crack the 53-man roster next season.
The former West Virginia Mountaineer is the cousin of legendary CB Darrelle Revis, and Rapoport added that he should compete for the nickel cornerback role that Corey Ballentine is currently slated for.
Askew-Henry played four seasons with West Virginia, where he totaled six interceptions, 208 tackles (9.5 for loss) and 10 passes defended over 49 career games.
He have to compete with other young corners like Ballentine, DeAndre Baker, Sam Beal, Grant Haley, and now James Bradberry who is the Giants' top corner at the moment.
