Former Tackle Adam Gress Signs Deal with New York Giants

1

While most of the hype surrounding Penn State football this time of year comes from season previews mixed in with the occasional James Franklin siren, former offensive tackle Adam Gress has some important news of his own. Gress has signed a contract with the New York Giants, giving his NFL dream a chance.

Gress graduated last year and went un-selected this May in the NFL Draft. Gress started most of last year for the Nittany Lions, sharing the role with Garry Gilliam, after starting three games in 2012. The Pennsylvania native started to break out during spring practice in 2012, where he impressed Bill O’Brien and won a shot at the starting job. He worked out for multiple NFL teams before getting an offer with the Giants. The terms of the contract haven’t been released yet.

Gress becomes the sixth Nittany Lion to join an NFL team from the Class of 2014. Congrats, Adam!
