The Giants worked out free agent OG Orlando Franklin.

It's the first interest in Franklin since his August release. The Giants are in the market for offensive line upgrades, but haven't made any signings. They've also been connected to Branden Albert and Cyrus Kouandijo.

Corey Brown worked out for the Giants on Wednesday.

The Giants are still in the market for wideouts after promoting Ed Eagan from the practice squad. Demarcus Ayers, Kalif Raymond, Jeremy Ross and Canaan Severin also visited, but none would be impact signings.
Oct 11 - 5:22 PM

Free agent OT Branden Albert will work out for the Giants later this week.

Albert left his Seahawks visit without a deal. The Giants' line is one of the league's worst. Signing Albert would give the G-Men the option of benching LT Ereck Flowers.
Oct 10 - 4:18 PM

Jets claimed TE Will Tye off waivers from the Giants.

With Austin Seferian-Jenkins suspended the first two games, Tye could play a role right away. The only other tight ends on the roster are Eric Tomlinson, Jason Vander Laan, and rookie Jordan Leggett. Tye has shown some ability as a pass catcher with a career 90-859-4 line in two seasons.
Sep 3 - 12:06 PM

Giants released/waived RB Shaun Draughn, QB Josh Johnson, RB Khalid Abdullah, FB Jacob Huesman, WR Travis Rudolph, WR Jerome Lane, WR Canaan Severin, WR Marquis Bundy, WR Ed Eagan, TE Will Tye, OL Adam Bisnowaty, OL Jon Halapio, OL Jarron Jones, OL Matt Rotheram, DL Devin Taylor, DL Bobby Richardson, DL Jordan Williams, LB Deontae Skinner, LB Stansly Maponga, LB Curtis Grant, CB Donte Deayon, CB DaShaun Amos, CB Nigel Tribune, S Ryan Murphy, S Trey Robinson, and K Mike Nugent.

DL Josh Banks and LB Mark Herzlich were waived/injured. Draughn was competing with guys like Wayne Gallman and Orleans Darkwa at running back.
Sep 2 - 5:15 PM

Giants waived TE Will Tye.

Tye appeared in all 16 games last season, starting 10, and registered a combined 90 catches for 859 yards and four touchdowns over the past two seasons. The Giants made it a point to overhaul their tight end spot this year. Tye couldn't block and provided very little playmaking ability. He was running with the backups all summer and fumbled multiple times in the preseason finale.
Sep 2 - 11:55 AM

Giants released QB Josh Johnson.

The move suggests Geno Smith has won the backup quarterback job, but the Giants could always look for a better option on the wire.
Sep 2 - 11:39 AM

Giants released K Mike Nugent.

Nugent made all five of his preseason field goal attempts but still lost the starting job to Aldrick Rosas. A former second-round pick with 236 career field goals, Nugent will be a name to watch for any teams who encounter kicker trouble early in the year.
Sep 2 - 11:20 AM

Giants released DE Devin Taylor.

Taylor didn't have a good camp and was buried on the depth chart behind Jason Pierre-Paul, Olivier Vernon, Romeo Okwara, Kerry Wynn and Avery Moss. The 27-year-old is less than two years removed from a seven-sack campaign in 2015. He should find work as a rotational pass rusher, perhaps with his old team, the Lions.
Sep 2 - 8:55 AM

Giants waived DE Owa Odighizuwa.

The move comes a day after Odighizuwa was hit with a four-game suspension for a PED violation. A third-round pick in 2015, Odighizuwa said he needed some time "away from the game" this offseason, but he eventually reported back to the Giants. Odighizuwa is talented enough to lock down a roster spot somewhere, but teams will have to feel comfortable with his off-field situation.
Aug 29 - 11:32 AM

Giants waived OT Michael Bowie.

Bowie was charged with domestic violence this past weekend and has predictably been cut. GM Jerry Reese wouldn't rule out a return down the line.
Aug 23 - 9:57 AM

Bears signed ILB Kelvin Sheppard, formerly of the Giants.

Sheppard, 29, worked out for the Dolphins this week after they lost rookie MLB Raekwon McMillan to an ACL tear. In Chicago, Sheppard will provide some inside linebacker depth if Danny Trevathan (knee) isn't ready.
Aug 18 - 12:44 PM

Ravens signed TE Larry Donnell, formerly of the Giants.

Donnell didn't attract much interest as a free agent, only working out for the Colts before landing with Baltimore. With Dennis Pitta gone, Benjamin Watson coming off a torn Achilles, Maxx Williams coming off knee surgery, and Darren Waller facing a year-long suspension, the Ravens are as thin at tight end as any team in the league. Donnell scored six touchdowns during a breakout 2014 campaign but is coming off a dreadful 2016 season that saw him earn PFF's worst grade out of 65 qualified tight ends. He remains well off the fantasy radar.
Jul 30 - 11:38 AM

Giants S Jadar Johnson has decided to retire.

Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson, Johnson will retire without making an NFL appearance. He probably would have been a long shot to crack the 53-man roster had he stuck around.
Jul 30 - 11:21 AM

Saints agreed to terms with QB Ryan Nassib.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport claims the Saints have "always been high" on the ex-Giants backup. Nassib had only made one visit since the G-Men let his contract expire. Preposterously buzzed about as a potential first-rounder in 2013, Nassib ended up falling to Round 4. He will be a camp arm behind Drew Brees, Chase Daniel and Garrett Grayson in New Orleans.
Jun 12 - 2:56 PM

Giants released S Rahim Moore.

DE Ishaq Williams was also cut to make room for S Duke Ihenacho and DE Devin Taylor. A 2011 second-round pick, Moore spent 2016 out of the league. He might not have any chances left.
May 25 - 11:27 AM

Free agent DE Devin Taylor is visiting the Giants on Monday.

After recording seven sacks in a rotational role for the Lions in 2015, Taylor took a step back as the starter last season, recording just 4.5 sacks and struggling against the run. The Giants do not need a starter with Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul atop the depth chart, but they do need depth behind the two stars. Taylor would be an upgrade to their rotation.
May 22 - 9:46 AM

Free agent ILB Gerald Hodges is visiting the Bills on Monday and Giants on Tuesday.

An underrated player, Hodges' market seems to finally be in full swing after he visited the Colts, Patriots, and Jaguars last week. He should find a new home in the near future.
May 22 - 9:39 AM

The Giants are bringing free agent K Travis Coons in for a tryout.

After letting Robbie Gould walk, the Giants are left with only Aldrick Rosas at kicker. Coons converted 28-of-32 field goals for Cleveland in 2015, albeit with a long of 47 yards. He was out of the NFL in 2016.
May 12 - 2:06 PM

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports the Lions and Giants "are squarely in play" for free agent RB LeGarrette Blount.

The Giants were linked with Blount before the draft, but they seem set after spending a fourth-round pick on Wayne Gallman. The Lions make more sense considering they did not dip into the draft pool, but GM Bob Quinn recently called Ameer Abdullah the starter. With the draft over, Blount should find a new home soon enough.
