Good morning BBN. Hope you’re having a blessed Sunday!
Of all the former Kentucky Wildcats in NFL, Wan’Dale Robinson is the name that’s drawn the most buzz thus far into training camps, as the New York Giants has already become a featured weapon in new head coach Brian Daboll’s offense.
The Giants’ first preseason game comes this Thursday at 7 pm ET vs. the New England Patriots. Here’s to hoping we see Robinson parlay his great training camp thus far into a big debut in his first official NFL game action.
