As they usually do on Tuesday's during the regular season, the New York Giants met with a large number of free agents yesterday. In addition to offensive linemen Steven Baker and Zebrie Sanders, and running backs Leon Washington, Jonathan Dwyer and Beanie Wells, Big Blue also met with the following players:
Wide receivers Chad Bumphus, David Douglas, Lanear Sampson, K.J. Stroud and Matt Veldman, quarterbacks Colby Cameron and Kyle Frazier, linebackers A.J. Edds and Julian Stanford, offensive linemen Garth Gerhart, Ramon Harewood, Hayworth Hicks and Andrew McDonald, and defensive back Rashard Hall.
Of those who worked out, the Giants have reportedly signed offensive lineman Steven Baker to their practice squad. However, the corresponding roster move has not yet been announced.
The team had previously filled their practice squad by signing the initial seven players — cornerback Charles James, wide receivers Julian Talley and Marcus Harris, offensive linemen Stephen Goodin and Eric Herman, and defensive ends Adewale Ojomo and Matt Broha — and capped it off by signing defensive back Jawanza Starling.
In addition to all of those moves, the Giants have also been in contact with the agents of running backs Ryan Grant and Kevin Smith, while maintaining a long-standing interest in Tim Hightower.
The one notable non-move made on Tuesday was the Injured Reserve (IR) with return designation for running back Andre Brown (broken leg). Although the team has apparently informed him that he will be placed on short-term IR, they have not yet made it official and will not likely do so until next week.
Other Notes: Offensive lineman Chris DeGeare was waived with an injury settlement.
