The New York Giants have waived wide receiver Da’Mari Scott after the former Fresno State Bulldog requested a release.

Wide receiver Da’Mari Scott had a lot of ground to cover if he wanted a shot at the New York Giants 53-man roster. He had to surpass guys such as Brittan Golden, Russell Shepard, T.J. Jones, and rookie Darius Slayton on the depth chart in order to get some sort of recognition.

Scott realized his chances were slim, and although that may not be the entire reason he requested a release from Big Blue, it definitely could’ve played a role. Scott wished to pursue opportunities elsewhere. On Wednesday, he got his wish, as the Giants waived the young wideout.

The Giants originally claimed Scott off of waivers this past July. He appeared in the preseason games against the New York Jets and the Chicago Bears, having combined for two receptions for 47 yards.

Scott went undrafted out of Fresno State University in 2018. He spent time with the Cleveland Browns and the Buffalo Bills organizations before coming to the Giants.

It’s unclear if the Giants will pick up a wide receiver to work out prior to final cuts next week. They still have a plethora of wideouts to choose from in works towards a final, 53-man roster. With Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate their top two receivers (regardless of Tate’s four-game suspension), Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler look to be the top reserve wideouts.

However, things could definitely change with which wideouts will backup their primary targets.
