The New York Giants have waived offensive lineman Evan Brown as Carolina signs defensive back Corn Elder off their practice squad.

A couple of moves were made within the New York Giants organization on Monday. Sadly, they don’t have to do with the coaching staff, even after falling to 2-8 on the year.

The Giants have decided to waive offensive lineman Evan Brown, who was a second-year pro. Brown, 23, originally signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He played his college ball at Southern Methodist University. Brown didn’t play a single game during his rookie year despite making the team after the preseason.


On Aug. 31 of this year, the team waived Brown and then signed him to the practice squad. Big Blue promoted him to the active roster for their past loss to the New York Jets due to injuries to center Jon Halapio and right tackle Mike Remmers.

In addition, defensive back Corn Elder has been signed by the Carolina Panthers off the Giants practice squad. Elder was originally drafted by the Panthers in the fifth round (No. 152 overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft out of the University of Miami. He missed his entire rookie year due to a knee injury and was waived by Carolina this past Summer during final roster cuts.

In 13 games for the Panthers in 2018, Elder racked up just three combined tackles, spending time in a special teams role for the most part. The Giants signed him to the practice squad on Sept. 2 of this year after Carolina cut him.
