Limas Sweed unlikely to make Giants after rough tryout

It's been a while since we heard about former Steelers second-round draft pick Limas Sweed. The Texas product was released by the Steelers off injured reserve last September, and spent 2011 out of football. 

The New York Giants gave him a chance as a tryout player over this weekend but it's apparently not going well

"After the past few days, it'll be a shock if he's on the roster come Monday," Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger wrote.

Sweed has struggled with drops, which isn't a big surprise to Steelers fans out there. Sweed only has seven catches in his career, the last one coming in 2009. The Giants have one of the deepest receiver groups in the league, so his chances of making the team were slim to none to begin with.
