Giants roster moves: Bachman’s back!

Giants add wide receiver to the practice squad

Matthew Swensen []

The New York Giants made four roster moves involving their practice squad.

Wide receiver Austin Mack, who was added to the active roster on Saturday and was inactive for the game, returned to the practice squad. Mack can be added to the 53-man roster one more time this season without needing to pass through waivers to be returned to the practice squad.

Two players who worked out late last week were added to the squad — wide receiver Alex Bachman and defensive tackle David Moa.

Bachman, who was with the Giants throughout the offseason and training camp, was released from the practice squad on Sept. 15. He was also on the practice squad from Nov. 12, 2019 through the end of the season.

Moa, 6-foot-3 and 296 pounds, was a member of the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad from Sept. 16-22. His first NFL team was the Minnesota Vikings, who signed him as a rookie free agent from Boise State on April 27. Moa was waived on Sept. 5.

The Giants also terminated the practice squad contract of wide receiver Johnny Holton, who joined the team on Sept. 2, was released on Sept. 5 and signed to the practice squad the following day. He was added to the active roster on Sept. 26 and played 13 special teams snaps vs. San Francisco.
