New York Giants running back David Wilson took to Twitter to announce that he has been medically cleared to resume football activity. More specifically, he’s been “cleared for everything.”

Yesterday the Giants offense got some bad news with the retirement of guard Chris Snee but today they get some of the good variety. David Wilson has had trouble catching on in the NFL but the raw talent still exists. One only needs to watch some of the kick returns he had to know that his speed and maneuverability can make a difference on the field.
He will not overtake Rashad Jennings for the starting tailback job but could take a decent chunk of work as a change-of-pace, assuming he can learn to hold onto the ball this season. Those that still think Jennings is a bargain should continue to think that. And those that think Jennings is a bust waiting to happen should also continue to think that.
