Giants' Lawrence Cager Setting Up For An "I'm Here" Season

Lawrence Cager is a 6-foot-5, 250-pound beast who went from a wide receiver to tight end. He went undrafted in 2020 and now can pose a threat in 2023.


Cager had two stints with the New York Jets, but was waived last August and instead of signing to the Jets’ practice squad, he would go on the other side of MetLife Stadium to sign with the New York Giants.


Going to Big Blue led him back to Brian Daboll, who recruited Cager out of high school while he was coaching at Alabama.


The biggest glimpse we got of Cager was in Week 17 of last season when New York was resting their starters. Cager would nab eight receptions for 69 yards, averaging just under 7 yards per target. Overall, the 25-year-old had 13 receptions off of 18 targets with the Giants last season for 118 yards.


Cager possibly could be at both WR and TE positions this season. He is a very athletic player, but the only downside is also the biggest factor to his career, which is his intensive injury history. If Cager could stay healthy all season long while getting consistent playing time, he could cement himself to a possible WR2/3 slot or TE2 placement.
