Mountaineers in the Pros

Former Mountaineer OT Worked Out for Giants



Yodny Cajuste

Players with natural talent like Yodny Cajuste are always going to get opportunities. And after a back and forth offseason that has the former Mountaineer without an NFL team, he’s starting to resurface again.

Cajuste had a tryout with the New York Giants on Friday, according to Aaron Wilson who covers the NFL for the KPRC2-TV.

This comes about a month after the Jets waived the offensive tackle from injured reserve while coming to an injury settlement. Cajuste had just signed with the Jets back in May as a free agent.

At the time, the addition of Cajuste by New York was viewed as being done to help bolster the offensive line for their new aging future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, that was not to be and Cajuste is now looking to get on a new roster as questions about his health continue to linger.

Ironically, prior to signing with Jets, Cajuste was believed to be headed back to New England, the franchise that drafted him in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
