Bromley was barely recruited out of high school

“Reminds you of a shorter Chris Canty the way he looks in his uniform,” Giants General Manager Jerry Reese said.

Bromley led SU in sacks (10.0) and tackles for loss (14.5) as a senior, and earned All-ACC third team honors. Over his four-year career, he had 33 career starts, 13 sacks and 24.5 tackles for a loss.

Syracuse went 7-6 in Bromley’s final year at Syracuse, and SU defeated Minnesota in the Texas Bowl, 21-17. He led a defense that was the only team in country not to allow an opposing player to rush for more than 100 yards.

Other former Syracuse players on the Giants roster include linebacker Jameel McClain, and head coach Tom Coughlin.
