The New York Giants have ended training camp reporting day with several roster moves.
The team terminated the contract of Tony Lippett and placed suspended safety Kamrin Moore on the Commissioner’s Exempt list. To fill the two roster spots, the Giants claimed wide receiver Da’Mari Scott off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills and signed free agent kicker Joey Slye.
Moore was suspended by the team last week after his alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident. Moore does not count against the 90-man roster.
Scott was signed by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State following the 2018 NFL Draft. He was signed to the Browns’ practice squad when rosters were trimmed to 53 players last year, before being promoted to the active roster in October. The Browns waived Scott in December, and he was then signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad. The Bills then promoted him to their active roster and he played in three games for them. The Bills released Scott on Tuesday and the Giants claimed him off of waivers.
Scott has solid size at 6-foot, 205 pounds, but wasn’t terribly productive in college. In his two years as a starter he caught 91 passes for 930 yards and four touchdowns. Scott was also used as a kick and punt returner by the Bulldogs and could offer some upside on special teams.
This is already Slye’s second stint with the Giants. The Giants originally signed Slye on May 6, only to release him a week later. Slye will compete with kicker Aldrick Rosas, at worst helping to make sure Rosas’ leg is fresh for the start of the season.
