On Tuesday, the New York Giants announced that they have terminated the contract of offensive linemen Stephen Goodin, and signed wideout Brandon Collins to the practice squad. The team made the move just a day before the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys. While neither of the aforementioned players will dress for tonight's game, this is an intriguing move given the Giants just cut Brandon Collins last week, while keeping Stephen Goodin.
Goodin, who was just named to the Giants practice squad on Saturday, is a Nebraska-Kearney product that was signed by Big Blue this past April. Although he showed some promise in early spring practices, the Giants younger offensive linemen as a whole struggled mightily in training camp and throughout the preseason.
Brandon Collins is an interesting prospect that while he has some potential, has now shown it yet. Collins did not record a catch in any of the team's first three preseason games. Collins started his college career at Texas, but was kicked off the team due to legal issues, and went on to become an undrafted free agent out of Southeast Louisiana.
The Giants will keep making miscellaneous moves on the practice squad throughout the season. Whether it be that the team wants a certain player to run the scout team for a certain week, or they find someone who may have potential, expect to see a lot of action this season in terms of practice squad transactions. In fact, Ryan Perriloux was cut and re-signed nearly 20 times last year, so this is nothing nothing new for the Giants.
