Brandon Meriweather agreed to a contract with the New York Giants on Wednesday.
Meriweather was released by the Giants last week, but the team decided to bring him back after fellow safety Cooper Taylor suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Meriweather started 11 games this season, but it remains to be seen if he will do so in either Week 16 or 17.
Brandon Meriweather (knee) has been released by the Giants on Wednesday, NJ.com reports.
The Giants parted ways with the eight-year veteran on Wednesday in order to make room for the signing of defensive lineman Barry Cofield. Meriweather was signed during training camp and started in 11 games before going down with a knee injury. He has 53 tackles and two interceptions on the season. Meriweather could find his way onto a roster in need of secondary depth.
Brandon Meriweather (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.
With Meriweather unable to play for the first time this season, Craig Dahl is the favorite to start alongside Landon Collins. It won't necessarily be a downgrade for the New York defense, as Meriweather misses a lot of tackles and often struggles in coverage. Collins is easily the superior IDP option.
The two-time Pro Bowler lost some of last year with Washington to a toe injury and has not played a full season since 2010. He did manage three sacks and contribute to 55 tackles in 2014.
