New York Giants OL Roy Mbaeteka turns down Giants contract to return to International Pathway Program.
Mbaeteka, who joined the Giants through the NFL’s International Pathway Program, declined an offer for a reserve/futures contract despite spending most of the 2022 season on the team’s practice squad.
The Giants offered a futures contract to Nigerian OL Roy Mbaeteka, but he declined, per source. Mbaeteka instead will return to the International Pathway Program. The upside of that path: Mbaeteka will be assured of three years on a practice squad so he can develop.
Mbaeteka was just a “regular” player this season since he was signed as a free agent, and therefore the Giants didn’t get a P-squad exemption for him. As a result, he spent much of the season on his own because the Giants needed his P-squad spot for contributors.Dan Duggan
As a result of his decision, Mbaeteka will go back to the NFL’s International Pathway Program.
Mbaeteka was mentored by Giants Legend Osi Umenyiora through the NFL Africa initiative, which is a component of the International Pathway Program (IPP).
