As a rookie Meggett led the NFL in punt return yards with 582. His return total for kick-offs as a rookie with New York was nothing to sneeze at either, with 577 yards. He also acted as a running back, toting and receiving the ball for the Giants as a rookie. In total, he put up a very impressive number of all-purpose yards with 1,807. That was good enough to be the third highest number of all-purpose yards in the NFL that season.
Although his rookie season would be his finest statistically as a New York Giant, he did lead the NFL again in punt returns for his sophomore campaign with 467 yards. And his all-purpose yards total number was once again impressive with 1,533, putting him number 6 overall in the NFL for the 1990 season.
Following the 1990 season, the Giants reached Super Bowl XXV, and Meggett would do is part in bringing New York the Championship. In one of the closest Super Bowls ever, a 20-19 New York victory over the Buffalo Bills, Meggett returned two kickoffs for 26 yards, two punts for 37 yards, rushed the ball 9 times for 48 yards and caught the ball twice for 18 yards.
As a New York Giant over six seasons, Meggett racked up 2,230 punt return yards, 2,989 kick return yards, and 8,641 all-purpose yards.
