Giants improve their team with some roster moves
The New York Giants made quite a few roster moves on Tuesday evening.
First and foremost, the Giants have signed free agent rookie linebacker Niko Lalos to their active roster after dropping him down to their practice squad following their win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. He’s made an immediate impact for Big Blue after recording a turnover in each of the past two weeks while filling in for Kyler Fackrell who’s on injured reserve.
New York also waived outside linebacker Trent Harris in order to make room for Lalos.
The Giants also signed former Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback Joe Webb to their practice squad. He can serve as an emergency quarterback, wide receiver and even special teams player. In order to make room for him they released tight end Nakia Griffin-Stewart.
Webb spent some time with the Detroit Lions earlier in the season and was on the Houston Texans’ roster in 2019. He will be a nice insurance policy in case another COVID-19 outbreak hits the Giants locker room.
