Not even 24 hours after the New York Giants cut former Kentucky tight end CJ Conrad, they decided to add him back to the team as a member of the practice squad.
TE CJ Conrad will sign to the Giants practice squad, per source.

Conrad went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft due to a heart condition that surfaced shortly before the Combine. As Kentucky fans, it wasn’t a surprise to see the 6-foot-4 receiver find his way onto a team. However, it was a shock to see him cut so early. But the good news is he’s earned a second chance.
The former Wildcat appeared in all four preseason games for the Giants, pulling in eight catches for 62 total yards. I’d bank on him finding his way onto the field sometime this season.
