NY GIANTS ANNOUNCE PRACTICE SQUAD SIGNINGS

The first name to jump off the list is recently aquirred veteran wide receiver Cole Beasley. Beasley is a favorite of head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen from their days together in Buffalo. He had an outside shot to make the 53 man roster and showed flashes during the preseason. A crowded receiver room and some nagging injuries limited him, but he is a nice fall back option at the slot if there are injuries.

Defensive lineman Ryder Anderson is the epitome of the NY Giants relying on devlopmental talent to fill the squad. Ryder did not play a snap this year, but has shown very nice pass rushing skills.

Tommy DeVito is the new fan favorite, taking the place of receiver David Sills IV who was cut as well. Devito, undrafted out of Illinois, showed very good arm strength as well as a keen pocket presence. Fans wanted DeVito on the roster instead of Tyrod Taylor, but he has some work to do.

Darrian Beavers was said to be in competition with Micah McFadden for the spot next to free agent pickup Bobby Okereke. A 2022 sixth-round draft pick, beavers missed the entire ’22 seaon with a torn ACL. A long road back and while not on the 53-man after the aquisistion of Isahiah Simmons, he found the practice squad.

As Cole Beasley was a surprise cut to some, four year outside linebacker Oshane Ximines was as well. Ximines has been hampered by injury since being drafted out of Old Dominion, he recorded three sacks last year for the Giants.

Right tackle Tyreke Phillips was another player that had a shot at the 53 man roster. The 26 year old was thought to have beaten out Matt Peart for the right tackle/swing tackle position, but he was cut, cleared waivers, and will attempt to jump to the main roster.

Another undrafted free agent that made the squad is corner back Gemon Green. The Michigan product did not set the world on fire in coverage through the pre-season, but the Giants saw enough talent in the 6’2″ 186 pound athletic corner to warrant a spot.

Dyontea Johnson was an undrafted linebacker out of Toledo. He impressed enough to hit the practice squad. At 6’2 230 lbs he certainly has upside for the future.

Safety Alex Cook had a very good pre-season in blue. Undrafted out of Washington, he shows good form tackling skills and an upside of cover skills that he will need to continue to work on.

Amani Oruwariye had a very solid pre-season, with eight tackles. A former Detroit Lion, he will fill in that veteran presence if he is needed to play.

Yet another undrafted player, Tomon Fox; an outside linebacker from North Carolina. Fox has had some good moments with the team and if he continues to impress might see a larger role in the future.

A very crowded tight end room found undrafted Ryan Jones making the practice squad. With the addition of Darren Waller and the drafting of Daniel Bellinger last year, along with Lawrence Cager (starting the season in IR), Jones was odd man out after Tommy Sweeney secured his spot on the 53.

A second tight end in Tyree Jackson will be there as well. Standing in a 6’7″ inches the former Philadelphia Eagle gives Daniel Jones a huge target to throw to if it comes to that.

If there were another wide receiver on the list I know fans wanted David Sills IV; unfortunately the “Sills Army” will need to focus their attention on Dennis Houston. Undrafted out of Western Illinois Houston showed enough of an upside that he got the spot.
