New York Giants sign Nigerian offensive tackle Roy Mbaeteka from NFL international pathway program


Maybe one day, Roy Mbaeteka can be the Giants’ Jordan Mailata. The Giants signed Mbaeteka, a 6-9, 320-pound Nigerian offensive tackle, out of the NFL’s international pathway program on Friday, the team announced. He has no high school or college football experience. The team says former star Giants pass rusher Osi Umenyiora has mentored Mbaeteka, 22, and first saw him at a camp in Nigeria in May 2021.

“Hard to describe what has just happened here,” tweeted Umenyiora, who spent part of his childhood in Nigeria. “I’m an emotional wreck. What this means for so many people where We come from is impossible to explain.” Back in 2018, the division rival Philadelphia Eagles used a seventh round pick on Mailata, an Australian rugby player in the international pathway program. He has developed into their 6-8, 365-pound franchise left tackle under revered offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland.

The bad boys of the National Football League won three Super Bowls from 1976-83 and have long been a lightning rod for buzz that did not always please the league office. The franchise is now on their third city as they’ll open the 2020 season at brand new Allegiant Stadium right off the Las Vegas strip.
