Santoso spent last season on the Giants practice squad, although he was put on the roster for games on Nov. 17 and Jan. 2. He did not play. He signed a reserve/futures contract on Jan. 26.
Santoso played in three games for the Tennessee Titans in December 2019. He attempted no field goals, but had touchbacks on 9 of 16 kickoffs (56.3%).
In the Giants’ 17-13 loss to the Browns on Sunday, Santoso kicked an extra point and had touchbacks on all three of his kickoffs.
“A large part of our focus for this game was to take a look at some of the guys, like Santoso with kicks,” Giants coach Joe Judge said after the game. “He has been tremendous for us, so we wanted to make sure we got him out there. Those guys did a tremendous job for us. We’re happy to have Graham. He is a phenomenal kicker. I know he (Santoso) is a quality guy and we wanted to make sure we got him some tape, to be honest with you. This guy deserves to be 1 or 2.”
NFL teams must reduce their rosters to the regular-season limit of 53 players by 4 p.m. Tuesday.
