Meadors, a four-year starter at UCLA, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings in 2019. He spent most of the next two years on their practice squad. Meadors did appear in three games, but he played only 11 total snaps and recorded a pair of tackles.
The acquisition comes after rookie safety Dane Belton suffered a broken collarbone during training camp on Monday, leaving New York’s already thin secondary shorthanded. Belton, the Giants’ fourth-round pick, is expected to miss the entirety of the preseason, but the team is hopeful he will be ready early in the season.
