The New York Giants have added a few players to the roster, claiming receiver Da’Mari Scott and re-signing kicker Joey Slye.
Ahead of training camp this week (the first full-team practice is on Thursday), the New York Giants have made a few roster moves.
Big Blue claimed wide receiver Da’Mari Scott off waivers this week. Scott previously played ball at Fresno State University. Having gone undrafted in 2018, Scott signed with the Cleveland Browns in May of that year. He signed to their practice squad after the conclusion of the 2018 preseason.
Scott was promoted to the Browns’ active roster in October of that season, however, was waived on Dec. 1. Scott then signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad on Dec. 5 and was promoted to the active roster on Dec. 8. The Bills waived him on Tuesday of this week.
During his last season at Fresno State (2017) Scott caught 57 balls for 566 yards and one touchdown in 14 games.
The Giants also signed kicker Joey Slye, who they previously signed in May. Slye was only with the organization for a week after impressing at this Spring’s rookie minicamp. He played his college football at Virginia Tech.
Through four years in college (50 games), Slye converted on 98.3% of his extra points and 72.2% of his field goal attempts, racking up 403 career points.
In additional moves, the Giants waived veteran defensive back Tony Lippett and received a commissioner’s exemption for defensive back Kamrin Moore. The latter was suspended by the team due to a domestic violence-related arrest earlier this month.
