C.J. Goodwin has apparently lasted only one week as a member of the New York Giants. Per a report Monday from Ian Rapoport, the Giants have waived the veteran cornerback. The Giants reportedly signed veteran corner Chris Lewis-Harris after a rookie mini-camp tryout.

The Giants were just awarded Goodwin off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals one week ago today. Goodwin, 28, played for both the Atlanta Falcons and the Cardinals last season.

Undrafted free agent Grant Haley was reportedly impressive during the mini-camp. The Giants also added undrafted cornback Aaron Davis, who played at Georgia, to the roster.

The Giants have continued to shuffle the depth behind Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple. GM Dave Gettleman has said that the Giants will continue to manipulate the end of the roster, and head coach Pat Shurmur reiterated as much during mini-camp.

“If we’ve got a player that we’ve liked for some reason and they have a chance to come in and maybe be better than one of the guys that’s on the roster, then we’re willing to trade it out,” he said. “We’re going to constantly try to find – until we get to the 53, we’re going to try to have the best 90 that we can have.”
