Nix was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.
Nix hoped to add some depth to the defensive line. He was competing with Montori Hughes and Jay Bromley for a backup role at defensive tackle. The Notre Dame product recorded four tackles in as many preseason games with the team.
Louis Nix was waived by the New York Giants on Saturday, Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News reports.
The Giants waved Nix in order to make room for defensive back Tramain Jacobs, who was promoted from the practice squad after Leon McFadden was officially ruled out for Sunday's game. Nix never recorded a snap with the Giants in 2015 and will now be subject to the NFL's waiver system. He could opt to rejoin the team at another point in the season if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
