Leslie Michael Jasper (born on October 8, 1986) is an American football offensive lineman and nose tackle who currently plays for the New York Giants. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft.[1] He played college football at Bethel (TN), playing two ways both as a defensive tackle and an offensive guard. Jasper, during his college career, was extremely large even by defensive tackle standards, weighing approximately 450 pounds; he reduced his weight to 375 pounds at the behest of Bills coach Chan Gailey.

Buffalo Bills (2011)Edit

Jasper was released prior to the start of the 2011 season in final cuts and was placed on the practice squad. The Bills activated Jasper on December 27, 2011 when tight end Mike Caussin was placed on the injured reserve list.[2] He was waived again by the Bills on August 13, 2012.

Tennessee Titans (2012)Edit

Jasper was signed by the Tennessee Titans on August 15, 2012 but was waived shortly thereafter.

Omaha Nighthawks (2012)Edit

The Nighthawks signed Jasper in September 2012, where he plays both ways as a starter on the offensive line and as a defensive tackle in goal-line situations.

New York Giants (2013-present)Edit
