Giants Sign PK from UDFA Jude McAtameny to Roster

Giants Sign PK from UDFA Jude McAtameny to Roster McAtameny will assist in relieving part of Graham Gano’s workload while he continues to heal from knee surgery that ended the season.

Jude McAtameny, a kicker, has joined the New York Giants’ roster of ninety players.
McAtamney is an Irishman who is 6-2 and weighs 205 pounds. Prior to spending two years as a collegiate player at Rutgers, he was a midfield player for the Derry Under-20s.

McAtamney, 6-2 and 205 pounds, hails from Derry, Ireland. He played two years of college ball at Rutgers; before that, he was a midfielder for the Derry Under-20s team.

In 2022, McAtamney played in all 12 games for the Scarlet Knights, going 12-for-18 on field goals, with five of his attempts coming at 40+ yards (including a long of 49 made twice). He finished as the team’s scoring leader with 59 points.

Last season, McAtamney played in 13 games and earned Academic All-Big Ten honors. He set a Rutgers school record with 40 touchbacks on 60 kickoffs, with zero going out of bounds after setting in as the team’s kickoff specialist. He only had one field goal attempt, which he did not convert.

McAtamney gives the Giants another leg to help take some of the onus off of Graham Gano, who is recovering from season-ending knee surgery. Gano is expected to be ready to play in Week 1 of the 2024 season, but the Giants want to ease his load in training camp while also giving McAtamney a chance to put together some NFL film.
