Free agent OG Donald Thomas worked out for the Giants on Tuesday.
Thomas was a key cog on the Patriots' offensive line as a versatile backup-turned-starter in 2012 before signing a four-year, $14 million deal with the Colts in 2013 to be a full-time starter. He missed 30-of-32 games with a twice-torn quad and torn biceps. Thomas just turned 30 back in September.
Free agent H-back James Casey worked out for the Giants on Tuesday.
As did ex-Giants TE Adrien Robinson. Down to one healthy tight end behind a questionable Larry Donnell (neck), the G-Men need to add somebody for Week 9.
Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Giants are "one of four teams" to express interest in trading for Chargers FS Eric Weddle.
The Giants have had a hole at free safety ever since they chose not to re-sign Antrel Rolle in the offseason. Veteran journeymen Craig Dahl and Brandon Meriweather have been soaking up snaps for the Giants next to rookie SS Landon Collins. Weddle would provide a big boost to a secondary that just gave up a league-record seven touchdowns to Drew Brees on Sunday.
Giants waived S Cooper Taylor.
A 2013 fifth-rounder, Taylor was in the running for a starting job this summer, but couldn't nail it down. He missed all of 2014 with a foot injury. It could be a minute before Cooper gets a second chance.
Free agent WR Terrelle Pryor worked out for the Giants on Wednesday.
With all three of Odell Beckham (hamstring), Rueben Randle (hamstring), and Victor Cruz (calf) banged up, the Giants could be in the market for receiver help. Pryor has gotten plenty of looks since being waived by the Browns, but he's yet to find a taker. The 26-year-old hopefully won't have to wait until next spring.
ESPN's Josina Anderson reported the Giants are working out Wes Welker and Hakeem Nicks on Tuesday.
The Giants are likely just updating their emergency list. This is the first reported workout for Welker since the spring. Welker has said he is healthy and wants to continue playing, but he has a concerning concussion history and was ineffective with the Broncos last season. Hakeem Nicks has worked out for several teams since being released by the Titans at final cuts.
Free agent TE Chris Cooley will work out for the Giants on Tuesday.
It's a deeply bizarre move. Now 33, Cooley hasn't played since 2012. We have a hard time believing he'd make any NFL team better at this point. We don't expect Cooley to get a contract.
Giants released WR Preston Parker.
Parker had five drops -- many in crucial situations -- during the first two games of the season. Special teamer Dwayne Harris should see time in the slot until Victor Cruz (calf) is ready to play, and Shane Vereen could be even more involved in the passing offense. Parker's release will open up a roster spot for DT Kenrick Ellis, who was signed on Tuesday.
Former Texans NT Louis Nix failed his physical with the Giants and is a free agent.
Nix missed his entire rookie season with knee and wrist issues. The 83rd pick in last year's draft, Nix (6'2/331) has yet to get his career off the ground.
Free agent WR Shaq Evans worked out for the Giants on Tuesday.
Evans was a fourth-round pick of the Jets last year but missed his rookie year after shoulder surgery. He was part of the Jets' final cuts over the weekend. Evans had a fine Combine, running 4.51 with a 10-foot-2 broad jump.
Free agent TE Joseph Fauria visited the Giants on Tuesday.
The Lions severed ties with Fauria over the weekend. Eight of Fauria's 24 career catches have gone for touchdowns. He'd give the Giants some insurance behind hit-or-miss starter Larry Donnell.
NFL suspended free agent RB Jonathan Dwyer three games.
Dwyer was hidden on the reserve/NFI list last season after being charged with domestic violence. His NFL career is over.
Giants waived CB Asa Jackson.
Jackson was claimed off waivers just two days ago. Jackson tore his PCL last December, and may have been in rougher shape than the G-Men were anticipating.
Ex-Giants S Tyler Sash has passed away at the age of 27.
Awful. Sash was found dead at his home on Tuesday morning. The cause is unknown. A 2011 sixth rounder, Sash made 23 appearances between 2011-12.
Free agent OT Jake Long has been medically cleared to return to football.
Long is scheduled to work out for Atlanta on Wednesday. He visited the Giants twice this offseason, and ESPN's Dan Graziano said they remain interested as well. Long should find a home sometime in the next week.
Giants will release WR Corey Washington with an injury settlement.
Washington had a disappointing August after shining in his rookie preseason, but the Giants are still surprisingly comfortable letting a promising prospect go. Washington is big, fast, and young. Washington has practice squad eligibility and should find a home once the NFL processes the transaction.
Giants released S Stevie Brown.
His reunion with the Giants lasted one week. Cut by two different safety-needy teams right before the start of the season, Brown's NFL future does not look bright. S Craig Dahl was signed in a corresponding move.
Giants released DT Kenrick Ellis.
Ellis lost his roster spot to fellow DT Louis Nix, who was claimed off waivers from the Texans. Ellis' one-year deal in March included $500,000 guaranteed.
The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Giants have "serious interest" in Seahawks holdout SS Kam Chancellor.
Considering they have the worst safety situation in the league, the Giants' interest is not surprising. The Seahawks would probably demand the farm for their star safety, who still has three-years left on his deal. The most likely outcome is the Seahawks give Chancellor more money up front while adding a year to his deal, but Seattle is running out of time to get something done.
Giants released/waived S Jeromy Miles, DB Chykie Brown, OL Adam Gettis, OL Emmett Cleary, OL Sean Donnelly, WR Julian Talley, RB Kenneth Harper, QB Ricky Stanzi, DL Dominique Hamilton, DB Chandler Fenner, DB C.J. Conway and K Chris Boswell.
Miles was briefly in the starting mix in New York's undermanned safety corps, but faded quickly. He could be brought back if/when depth arises arise again.
