SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes and current New York Giants running back Devontae Booker ran in a touchdown in their preseason game against the Cleveland Browns.

Late in the first quarter of the Giants’ home game, Devontae Booker got the call and ran in the touchdown from one yard out to tie the game at seven.

It’s the first touchdown for Booker in a Giants uniform. In the preseason opener last week, Booker had three carries for 12 yards in their loss to the New York Jets. Against the Browns, Booker got the start and had six carries for 27 yards and a TD in the first quarter.

Booker was drafted in the fourth round with the 136th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. After four seasons in Denver and racking up 1,103 yards and six touchdowns, Booker signed a one-year contract with the Las Vegas Raiders. During the 2020 season, Booker played in 16 games with one start. He recorded 423 yards on 93 carries for three touchdowns.

In the offseason, Booker signed with the New York Giants. He will be a very nice piece to the running game behind Saquon Barkley.
