Giants WR Ramses Barden come to New York with high expectations after being taken in the third round of the 2009 draft. Injuries and the inability to get any traction on the offense or specials have made this camp a make-or-break one for Barden.
With time running out, the 6'6", 225 lb wideout needed to make his presence known in a game situation. Last night, Barden caught three passes including one for 22 yards and an 11-yard TD - his first ever as a Giant.
"I?ve been here for a few years and this is the healthiest I?ve been for a while and I want to show that good feeling isn?t going to waste," Barden said after the Giants' 20-17 loss to Chicago. "I want to be here for whatever my team needs me to do. Whether it is teams, whether it?s on offense, whether it?s green zone, I like to contribute in every way that I can and the more touchdowns I can get, the happier I?ll be."
