ESPN Films 30 for 30 Shorts: The Irrelevant Giant

Grantland and ESPN Films have released the eighth film in their 30 for 30 documentary short series.

30 for 30 Shorts: The Irrelevant Giant

In 1983 the New York Giants were a team in flux. Rookie coach Bill Parcells was hired to rebuild the once-prominent franchise. One of the resources at his disposal was the last pick in the 1983 NFL draft — a pick commonly known as "Mr. Irrelevant." That year Parcells's staff chose John Tuggle, a running back out of Cal, who would not only defy the odds and make the team, but also change the lives of both player and coach.
