FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed two players who were set to become unrestricted free agents in linebacker Justin March-Lillard and safety Darian Thompson.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Super Bowl winner, cancer survivor and NFLPA treasurer Mark Herzlich was among the 36 player moves made by the New York Giants in getting down to the league's 53-man roster limit.
The Giants announced the moves Saturday in what won't be the last ones for the first team under new coach Pat Shurmur. General manager Dave Gettleman plans to scour the waiver wire this weekend to bolster a team that went 3-13 last season.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have placed rookie safety Darian Thompson on injured reserve with a foot injury that will require surgery.
It was one of four moves the Giants announced Wednesday. Offensive lineman Adam Gettis has been signed off the practice squad with left guard Justin Pugh expected to miss up to a month with a sprained right knee.
The team also signed receivers Kevin Norwood and Da'Ron Brown to their practice squad.
LONDON (AP) — Robbie Gould took the field as a New York Giant for the first time Sunday as the former Bears kicker made his debut in place of scandal-hit Josh Brown, currently on the NFL commissioner's exempt list.
Both teams' defenses face depth concerns in London. The Giants are down to two safeties with Nat Berhe out with concussion and primary backup Darian Thompson nursing a foot injury, which could force veteran cornerback Leon Hall to play some safety alongside Landon Collins.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants are so short of players in the secondary that rookie coach Ben McAdoo had to have a couple of his receivers play safety in practice.
McAdoo would not identify the guys who got shifted on Thursday nor would he say whether any of them might be used Monday night when the Giants (2-1) face the Vikings (3-0) on the road.
Who knows? Imagine Odell Backham Jr. back there! He did it in the Pro Bowl.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — When the New Orleans Saints are limited to 13 points, it's easy to point a finger at No. 9 and say it's Drew Brees' fault.
Well guess what? The 37-year-old quarterback wasn't all that bad Sunday in a 16-13 loss to the New York Giants.
Brees didn't throw any interceptions and the Saints didn't turn the ball over. The offense just could not get it going against a revamped Giants defense.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Six months after general manager Jerry Reese revamped the New York Giants' defense with the draft and free agency, coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is finally going to get a chance to play with his new toy.
With Olivier Vernon, Damon 'Snacks' Harrison, Janoris Jenkins, Eli Apple, Kelvin Sheppard, Keenan Robinson, Darian Thompson and Leon Hall added to the roster, the Giants are no longer the NFL's worst defense.
