The 25-year-old Hynoski took his opportunity to test the free-agent market and see what was out there for him. However, he has reportedly decided the Giants were his best option after a visit with the Detroit Lions on Thursday.
Hynoski suffered two tough injuries during the 2013 season, first an MCL injury that forced him to undergo surgery and then a fractured shoulder which ultimately ended his season. He appeared in just three games and caught one pass.
With Jon Conner—Hynoski’s midseason replacement—also on the roster, the fullback position could come down to a training camp battle with the job going to the best man.
In his three-year career, the former Pittsburgh Panther has caught 24 passes for 138 yards and one touchdowns. He has become a popular player among fans, earning the nickname “Hynocerous” for his bulldozing style of play.
