Since being re-signed by the Giants in week six, following season-ending injuries to Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall, Tavarres King has gotten more of an opportunity than ever before in his nomadic four year NFL career.
King, 27, has seven catches this season in four games played for the team and is desperate to take advantage of an opportunity that injuries have provided him.
"Every time I want to be at my best, playing at my best and helping my team," King told Pat Leonard of New York Daily News. "But I definitely want to show what I can do every down, really, so that's what I do when I'm out there when I'm given an opportunity to play."
King has bounced around the league since being drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2013, but a glut of receiver injuries has given him a chance to stick with the Giants since week 6. With Beckham, Marshall and Dwayne Harris out for the season, as well as Sterling Shepard being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, King will have the chance to prove he's an NFL-quality receiver.
"I just want to be the best that I can be, plain and simple," King said. "I don't care what anybody thinks about me. It's all about what I do. I can't control what people do, say, if I'm here, there, wherever. I just play, and play hard."
