The New York Giants have announced that former Clemson running back Wayne Gallman has signed his four-year contract with the team on Tuesday according to team officials. Gallman was selected in the 4th round (#140 Overall) of the 2017 NFL draft.

His contract deal was for $2,819,348 with a $419,348 signing bonus.

All of the Giants' 2017 draft picks have now signed except for first rounder Evan Engram.

Gallman left Clemson after three seasons as one of the school's most decorated and productive running backs in history. He produced 3,429 rushing yards on 676 carries, with 34 touchdowns over 42 games (37 starts) and added 65 career receptions for 473 yards and two touchdowns. He broke Raymond Priester’s single-season school record for rushing yards in 2015, and Priester’s career record for 100-yard rushing games in 2016. Clemson was 17-0 in contests where Gallman ran for over 100 yards. He finished his career third in Clemson history in rushing touchdowns and fifth in rushing yards.

In 2016, Gallman was named second-team All-ACC (media, coaches). He recorded 1,133 rushing yards on 232 carries in 15 games (15 starts) and added 152 yards on 20 receptions. He also was the team leader with 17 rushing touchdowns, a figure that tied Lester Brown (1978) and James Davis (2006) for the top single-season mark in Clemson history.
