The New York Giants Wednesday finalized their 10-man practice squad by signing G.J. Kinne and Gerald Rivers. The complete practice squad is below.

No. NAME POS. HT. WT. AGE EXP. COLLEGE
71 Bars, Brad DE 6-3 263 23 0 Penn State
63 Cleary, Emmett T 6-7 324 25 1 Boston College
36 Conway, C.J. DB 6-2 200 22 R Montclair State
49 Farrand, Cole LB 6-3 229 22 R Maryland
60 Gettis, Adam G 6-2 305 26 2 Iowa
Hughes, Montori DT 6-4 350 25 3 Tennessee-Martin
Kinne, G.J. QB 6-2 218 26 1 Tulsa
Rivers, Gerald LB 6-2 250 25 2 Mississippi
19 Talley, Julian WR 6-1 192 26 1 Massachusetts
48 Tye, Will TE 6-2 262 23 R Stony Brook

Kinne is listed as a quarterback, but worked at receiver with the Philadelphia Eagles. Reports from camp Wednesday were that the Giants were working him out with the safeties. I guess maybe the Giants will try just about anyone at the safety spot right now.

Hughes, who has NFL experience with the Indianapolis Colts, could be in line for a bump to the 53-man roster with Louis Nix III having flunked his physical.

Kinne and Rivers were part of a 17-player workout the Giants held on Tuesday. These player workouts generally take place every Tuesday during the season. Here are the remaining 15 players who worked out for the Giants.

Dwight Bentley, DB, Louisiana-Lafayette
Durell Eskridge, S, Syracuse
Shaquelle Evans, WR, UCLA
Brandon Fields, P, Michigan State
Tramain Jacobs, DB, Texas A&M
Nico Johnson, LB, Alabama
Shiloh Keo, DB, Idaho
Joe Looney, OG, Wake Forest
Nick Moody, LB, Florida State
Henoc Muamba, LB, St. Francis Xavier
Quayshawn Nealy, LB, Georgia Tech
Xavier Proctor, DT, North Carolina Central
Kasey Redfern, P, Wofford
Alameda Ta'amu, DT, Washington
Casey Walker, DT, Oklahoma
