Kerry Wynn knows he has plenty of work to do if he wants to compete for a spot at defensive end on the Giants this season, he told Newsday.
Wynn recorded three tackles and a sack in the team's preseason opener against the Steelers on Friday. However, Wynn is battling with Romeo Okwara, Devin Taylor and rookie Avery Moss for time at the position behind starter Jason Pierre-Paul.
"I'm an undrafted guy," he said. "I'm going to ride with that until my days in the league are done. I come in every day trying to prove something, trying to continue to get better. ... I couldn't take that chip off my shoulder. There are so many that if you take a few off, I'd still have tons of them on there. That's the way it is. Even if I took the one on the left off, I got three of them on the right."
Signed out of the University if Richmond in 2014, has 52 tackles and two sacks during his three seasons with the Giants. He signed a one-year deal as a restricted free agent this offseason.
Head coach Ben McAdoo likes what he's seen in the time he's been with Wynn.
"Kerry Wynn is a valuable player," McAdoo said. "He's been around. He can play inside, he can play outside. He can play on mixed downs, first, second, third down. He can play on special teams. Smart football player."
