After holding private workouts for 19 players on Friday, the New York Giants have signed center/guard Scott Wedige and defensive back Terrence Frederick to their practice squad. Both players are rookies with no NFL experience.
Wedige is an undrafted free agent out Northern Illinois who spent training camp with the Arizona Cardinals. He was cut on the final day when the rosters were trimmed from 75 to 53.
Frederick is a defensive back out of Texas A&M that was drafted in the seventh round of this years draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was also released during final cuts.
The moves are expected to be officially announced on Saturday. To accommodate the addition of the two new players, the team must release two players on the practice squad. Don't read to much into these moves, as the Giants will constantly tweak the practice squad, depending on how they want to run the scout team of the upcoming opponent. Presumably, more information will be forthcoming tomorrow as the team officially announces the move.
