Shortly after leaving JMU, Delvin joined the New York Football Giants as an un-drafted Free Agent and made an immediate impact as the starting punt and kick returner in 2002 when he had the highest single season kickoff return average for a Giants player since 1975. During the 2003 season, he won the role of back-up running back to Tiki Barber, beating out Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne and former All-Pro running back Dorsey Levens. A hip injury in 2004 landed him on the injured list for the season and he attempted a brief comeback with the New York Jets in 2005 before retiring and relocating to Charlotte, NC.
Delvin joined Prudential’s North Carolina Financial Group as a Financial Services Associate in October 2006. He was quickly promoted to Manager, Financial Services in December 2007 where he recruited, trained and developed a team of Financial Services Associates.
