Give New York Giants GM Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur credit for admitting a mistake and moving quickly to get past it.

The Giants have reportedly released offensive lineman Patrick Omameh, signed to a three-year, $15 million contract ($5.5 million guaranteed) in the offseason. To replace Omameh on the roster, the Giants promoted kick returner/wide receiver Quadree Henderson from the practice squad.

Henderson has been cut from the 53-man roster, added to the practice squad, and now brought back to the active roster in the past few days.

Omameh, expected to be a part of the Giants’ offensive line rebuild, started six games at right guard before being benched.

The Giants have now cut both players — Omameh and Ereck Flowers — who began the season on the right side of their offensive line.

The Giants are also now using their third center, with Stephen Pulley starting after Jon Halapio was injured and John Greco moved from center to right guard to replace Omameh. Newly-acquired Jamon Brown is expected to start somewhere on the line Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
