The New York Giants have signed wide receiver Da’Mari Scott off the practice squad one day after waiving Bennie Fowler III.
Big Blue’s receiver room has changed a bit over the past day or so.
On Wednesday, the New York Giants signed wideout Da’Mari Scott off the practice squad. The Giants originally claimed him off waivers in July and then waived him in August prior to the start of the regular season. The organization then signed him to the practice squad on Oct. 1.
Scott has only appeared in three regular-season games in his career, all with the Buffalo Bills in 2018. He played his college ball at Fresno State University. In 42 games for the Bulldogs, Scott caught a total of 91 balls for 1,163 yards and five touchdowns.
This signing comes just one day after the Giants waived wide receiver Bennie Fowler III. He appeared in 18 games for Big Blue over the last two seasons.
Along with the promotion of Scott, the Giants also re-signed wideout Reggie White Jr. to the practice squad. He was recently waived from the practice squad earlier this month.
White appeared in each of the team’s four preseason games, catching eight balls on 15 targets for 115 yards. He previously played ball for Monmouth University. In 45 career collegiate games, he racked up 249 receptions for 3,373 yards and 31 touchdowns.
The Giants’ receiving corps has dealt with depletion for much of this year. Sterling Shepard has missed six games in total due to multiple concussions. Golden Tate, who missed the first four games due to a PED-based suspension, is currently in the concussion protocol.
