The New York Giants addressed a need for additional cornerback depth on Sunday by claiming Tay Glover-Wright off waivers, the team officially announced late sunday afternoon. Glover-Wright, 25, had been released by the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Giants waived/injured undrafted rookie free agent defensive end Evan Schwan, who suffered a fractured foot Saturday night against the New York Jets.
SB Nation’s Bleeding Green Nation referred to Glover-Wright, who played two games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2015, as “just another body for the Eagles at cornerback.” Glover-Wright had signed with the Eagles on July 31.
The Giants are thin at corner entering their Thursday preseason finale against the New England Patriots. Michael Hunter remains in the concussion protocol and 2016 first-round pick Eli Apple left Saturday’s game against the New York Jets with his second ankle injury of the preseason.
Glover-Wright is 6-foot, 180 pounds. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent.
