Training Camp Roster Preview: P Ryan Anderson

What you need to know about UDFA punter Ryan Anderson

Background

Ryan Anderson spent just one season with the Scarlet Knights, but it was a productive one. The left-footed punter (and one-time receiver) played for Rutgers in 2017 and set a new school mark as the all-time single-season punting average leader (44.4), which was also first tin the Big Ten conference among punters.

Anderson's 79 punts were second in the Big Ten conference that season; his 3,508 punting yards ranked second in the conference and put him fifth in the NCAA..

Looking Ahead

Do the Giants have a brewing competition at punter developing?

That's how it looked at first after the left-footed Anderson got off to a strong spring.

But after tailing off significantly with some clunkers during the mincamp, Anderson, whose one season at Rutgers was not too far off from Dixon's 41.8 net average, it looks more like Anderson is probably in camp to help share the load so that Dixon doesn't wear out his leg.

I don't think there was ever a "competition" brewing. My guess is they brought in this kid to take some of the load off of Dixon while also train the punt returners on how to handle the ball when it comes off a left-footed punter's foot.
