The New York Giants on Tuesday terminated the practice squad contract of wide receiver Corey Coleman and signed tight end Nakia Griffin-Stewart to take his place.

With tight end Kaden Smith on the Reserve/COVID-19 list the Giants are adding the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Stewart as depth. Griffin-Stewart played three seasons at Rutgers and transferred to Pitt for the 2019 season. He finished his college career with 32 receptions. An undrafted free agent, he spent some time this season on the practice squad of the Green Bay Packers.

Coleman played in 8 games for the Giants in 2018. He caught 5 passes and averaged 26.0 yards on 23 kickoff returns.

Coleman missed all of the 2019 season with a torn ACL. He was cut by the Giants before the season started and was re-signed to the practice squad in late October. A 2016 first-round pick (15th overall) by the Cleveland Browns, Coleman has never lived up to that draft status.

The Giants still have wide receivers Alex Bachman, Derrick Dillon and Binjimen Victor on their practice squad.
