A pair of former Kentucky Wildcats will be reunited in the NFL this summer.
Last week, the New York Giants announced they signed Derrick Baity who spent the end of the 2019 season on their practice squad to a futures contract.
Friday, it was reported that the Giants added another former Wildcat in tight end CJ Conrad.

Conrad was a member of the Giants during training camp last year but was cut following the preseason. With injuries plaguing starting tight end Evan Engram’s carer, Conrad may have a better chance to earn a roster spot in 2020.
Both Baity and Conrad played for the Wildcats from 2015-2018 and played vital roles in helping turn the Football program back into a winner. Baity and Conrad were both four-year starters and helped Kentucky win the Citrus Bowl on New Year’s Day in 2019.
In addition to Baity and Conrad, another four-year Kentucky starter George Asafo-Adjei is also with the Giants as he was drafted in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He missed the entire 2019 season with a concussion.
While neither is a lock to make the roster, they will at least have an opportunity.
