In early March, the New York Giants extended a tender offer to fullback Elijhaa Penny, who was slated to become an exclusive rights free agent (ERFA).

Due to the rules surrounding ERFA’s, Penny was essentially put in a position where he had to sign the tender or sit out in 2019. And to no surprise, he rushed to sign that offer, which became official on Tuesday.

Penny (6-foot-2, 234 pounds) was signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Idaho in 2016. After spending the 2016 season on the Cards’ practice squad, Penny was on the active roster for the entire 2017 season. He had 31 carries for 124 yards with two touchdowns and 38 receiving yards.

In 2018, Penny started on the Cardinals’ practice squad once again, but was signed off it by the Giants in mid-September. He went on to appear in 14 games, gaining 75 yards from scrimmage and frequently leading running back Saquon Barkley through the line of scrimmage.

Contract details have not yet been released.
