Attleboro native Kyle Murphy announced he is signing a deal to join the New York Giants.

The Rhode Island offensive tackle went undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft and reportedly agreed to a deal with the team moments after the draft ended Saturday.

Murphy had a strong career at URI, earning All-Colonial Athletic Association first-team honors twice. He was also selected to the New England Football Writer’s Association All-New England team three times.

Before heading to college, Murphy was a two-sport star at Attleboro High school, where he played football and basketball. However, he wasn’t highly recruited out of college.

Murphy joins former Patriot Nate Solder and Andrew Thomas, whom the Giants selected with the fourth overall pick Thursday, as notable offensive tackles for the Giants.
