Terrell Watson seems to have become a member of the New York Giants

The now former Steelers running back seems to have been picked up by the New York Giants.

It looks like “The Nightmare” is headed to the Big Apple.

Terrell Watson, who spent his 2017 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers in one capacity or another, tweeted out an image suggesting he is now officially a member of the New York Giants.

After a season which saw Watson start as a training camp darling, impress in the preseason, and start the year as a kick returner and short-yardage back, Watson never truly received a chance to show what he can do on a regular basis.

Around the midway point of the season, the Steelers promoted Fitzgerald Toussaint, who Watson beat out for a spot on the roster to start the season, from their practice squad to the active roster, and demoted Watson to the practice squad after he wasn’t claimed by another NFL team.

Watson remained on the team’s practice squad the rest of the season, and after the year concluded the Steelers did not extend a reserve/future contract to Watson, but it looks as if the Giants did just that.

Watson finished the 2017 season with 10 games played, 5 carries for 8 yards, and converting 3 first downs.

We all wish Watson the best in his new start with the Giants!
