Position Listing
Rashad Jennings
Jennings is expected to handle around "15-18 carries per game" in 2016 while the Giants deploy a shorter rotation at running back than they did in 2015, per the Giants' official site.

Jennings is a jack-of-all-trades tailback, capable of toting the rock, catching passes and protecting the quarterback. However, if he were to see 15-18 carries per game, he would finish with somewhere between 240 and 288 carries on the year; the six-year veteran hadn't topped 167 carries in any season before last year's 195 attempts. Jennings needed to stay healthy for an entire 16-game slate for the first time in his career to reach that career-high, too. Given Jennings' injury history, with Shane Vereen in the mix on passing downs, HC Ben McAdoo's endorsement of Andre Williams, the addition of Bobby Rainey, and the selection of Paul Perkins in the fifth round, it is still too soon to project how the Giants will divide the work amongst their stable of runners. Training camp and the preseason should shed light on the situation.

Mike Rose
No Updates
Andre Williams
Williams carried the ball five times for 26 yards in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

Williams topped five yards per carry for just the second time this season during Sunday's contest. The Giants' stable has been an enigma all season, but Rashad Jennings came on late with 432 yards and two of his three scores this season in the final four games. With Shane Vereen likely to continue as a valuable passing-game option, it will be up to the new regime to determine whether Jennings' production is worth his contract, if Williams deserves more opportunities or if the Giants' next featured back is in the draft or free agency pool.

Josh Brown
Browns is expected to re-sign with the Giants on a two-year, $4 million deal, the New York Daily News reports.

Brown is fresh off the best statistical season of his 13-year career, as he converted 30-of-32 field goal attempts for the Giants last year. Although he'll turn 37 years old soon, Brown has shown little signs of aging and should provide a reliable weapon in New York's kicking game for the next couple campaigns.

Michael Hunter
No Updates
Kerry Wynn
The Giants have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 12 matchup with the Cowboys: linebacker Jacquian Williams (concussion), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (calf), cornerback Mike Harris, defensive end Kerry Wynn and offensive linemen Dallas Reynolds, Justin Pugh and Brandon Mosley.

Williams and Jenkins had already been ruled out on Friday's final injury report of the week. All three of the team's probables are active Sunday, including defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka (knee), guard Geoff Schwartz (toe) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (back, hamstring).

Matt LaCosse
No Updates
Paul Perkins
No Updates
J.T. Thomas
The Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. 

The New York Daily News previously reported that Vereen is being signed to a three-year, $12.35 million deal. Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He added 447 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the passing game as well. 

“(I made this) decision with my family,” Vereen said, via the team's official website. “At the end of the day, I wanted to make a decision that was right for us, right for them, and this is a great organization. I was fortunate enough to play in New England with another great organization. This is not a step down; if anything, it is a step up. I am looking forward to the opportunity, and I am enjoying being in New York.” 

The Giants also announced the official signings of offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris and linebackers Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas III.

Leon McFadden
49ers cornerback Leon McFadden is questionable to return to Saturday's Week 16 game against the Chargers due to a head injury, the team announced. McFadden had yet to record a tackle in Saturday's game at the time of his injury.
Nikita Whitlock
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Damon Harrison
Harrison agreed to a five-year, $46.5 million deal with the Giants on Wednesday, Jordan Raanan of NJ Advance Media reports.

With the Jets in a salary cap bind, Harrison took the Giants' substantial contract offer Wednesday and will be a member of their defensive front for years to come. Harrison was the anchor of a loaded Jets defensive front that included Muhammad Wilkerson and rookie phenom Leonard Williams in 2015 and should make an immediate impact up the middle for a Giants defense that was underwhelming at every level last season.

Eli Apple
The Giants selected Apple in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 10th overall.

Apple was not expected to go this soon, but his upside has never been doubted. Apple is a well-built corner at 6-foot-1, 199 pounds with 4.40 speed, and while his film indicated the need for further development before earning a starting NFL role, the Giants evidently concluded Apple will continue to improve and capitalize on his uncommon athleticism.

Matt Smalley
No Updates
Will Tye
The Giants and Tye agreed to a contract Monday.

The Giants' tight-end group endured the losses of Daniel Fells (foot) due to a staph infection and Larry Donnell with a still undisclosed neck issue last season, paving the way for Tye to make his mark in the passing attack. After making his NFL debut in Week 4, Tye proceeded to corral multiple passes in each of the season's final 12 games, racking up 42 receptions (on 62 targets) for 464 yards and three touchdowns. While Fells' career is almost certainly over, Donnell should serve as the No. 1 option in 2016, which may relegate Tye to a negligible role.

Orleans Darkwa
Darkwa is expected to be held out of action for about a month due to a small fracture in his tibia, reports.

The injury is considered minor, with the Giants simply playing it safe with the running back at this stage of the offseason. Once he returns to practice, Darkwa figures to compete for depth snaps (along with recently signed Bobby Rainey) in a crowded Giants' backfield that also rosters Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams and Shane Vereen.

Leg - Probable for start of season
Montori Hughes
The Colts parted ways with WR Duron Carter, DL Josh Chapman and DT Montori Hughes on Saturday, the team announced.
Cooper Taylor
Taylor has underwent sports hernia surgery and will be sidelined until training camp, reports.

Taylor was working with the Giants' first-team defense at free safety earlier this spring, but will now be sidelined after his latest surgery. Typically, sports hernia surgery requires four-to-six weeks of recovery time, and the Giants open training camp in five weeks. That puts Taylor on the fringe of being ready once camp starts, but until then, teammates Nat Berhe, Bennett Jackson and rookie third-rounder Darian Thompson figure to benefit from extra practice reps.

K.J. Maye

No Updates
Owa Odighizuwa
Giants defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa, who missed the first three games of the season with a foot injury, saw 47 snaps Sunday against the Bills.

Odighizuwa had one solo tackle and one assist, but has some upside as a pass rusher going forward.

Larry Donnell
Donnell has signed a contract to remain with the Giants after having received medical clearance from the team's medical staff.

Donnell, who did not play again in 2015 after suffering a neck injury back on Nov. 1, now has the green light to play and he'll look to compete for tight end snaps this coming season with Will Tye and Jerome Cunningham. Prior to his injury, Donnell caught 29 passes for 223 yards and two TDs in eight starts for the Giants, but Tye's emergence as the 2015 season rolled along suggests that Donnell is hardly a lock to fully reclaim his previous role in the team's offense.

Shane McDermott
No Updates
Melvin Lewis
No Updates
Tramain Jacobs
The Ravens have announced that wide receiver Kamar Aiken and cornerback Tramain Jacobs each signed their exclusive-rights tenders on Monday, reports the Baltimore Sun. 

Aiken's offer was for $585,000 while Jacobs' was $510,000. 

Aiken played in 16 games for Ravens last season, catching 24 passes for 267 yards. Jacobs played in three games in 2014, finishing his rookie campaign on injured reserve (thigh).

Victor Cruz
Cruz (calf) is taking part in individual drills at Tuesday's mandatory minicamp practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

A report last week said Cruz wouldn't participate in the three-day minicamp, but he's apparently ready to run routes and catch passes without facing a defender. This bodes quite well for his training camp availability, as he was already tentatively expected to be ready for the start of camp. It remains to be seen if Cruz is still effective, having last played in a game Nov. 12, 2014. He may also have to compete with rookie second-rounder Sterling Shepard for snaps, though the Giants figure to once again rank among the NFL leaders in use of three-wide formations.

Calf - Probable for start of season
Janoris Jenkins
Jenkins will sign a contract with the Giants when free agency begins Wednesday at 4:00 ET, the New York Daily News reports.

After spending his first four seasons with the Rams, Jenkins will head to New York on a multi-year deal that will average over $12 million per season. He will likely take the starting cornerback spot opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie from Prince Amukamara, who was allowed to become a free agent and is now even more unlikely to return to the Giants.

John Jerry
Giants left tackle Ereck Flowers, who hurt his ankle Sunday against the Cowboys, was able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. Although, his availability for Week 2 against the Falcons is still to be determined.

"It was just like any other injury," Flowers said, per "You've got to play through it and get through it.

"I guess we'll see. In my head, I'm looking to play."

With Will Beatty on the PUP list, John Jerry would likely be tasked with protecting quarterback Eli Manning's blindside Sunday, if Flowers can't play.

Odell Beckham
Beckham caught five of seven targets for 54 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

The second-year wideout struggled to make an impact in his return from a one-game suspension, totaling his lowest yardage output since Week 7. Beckham still managed to surpass his totals from a season ago despite his late season issues, with 96 receptions, 1,450 yards and 13 touchdowns on the season. Beckham is an elite receiver who has the full attention of Eli Manning most weeks, and big things should be expected once again in 2016.

Darian Thompson
The Giants selected Thompson in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 71st overall.

Thompson tested poorly in the pre-draft process, but he was quite a playmaker for a strong Boise State pass defense over the last four years. Thompson intercepted 19 passes in that span, and he could earn a Day One starting role on a Giants defense lacking safety talent.

Jason Pierre-Paul
Pierre-Paul said he won't need any further surgeries on his right hand, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Pierre-Paul famously injured his right hand in a serious fireworks accident last summer, causing him to miss the first eight games of the 2015 season. He did return with a massive cast on his hand for the second half of the campaign, but he only managed one sack in eight games, after tallying 12.5 the previous season. Following an additional surgery in January, the 27-year-old signed a one-year contract in March, presumably hoping to repair his value. Pierre-Paul should be back to full health in 2016, and he also mentioned that he lost some weight during the offseason.

Brett Jones
Giants center Brett Jones has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season, reports the New York Daily News.

Jones recently suffered an MCL sprain in his knee. Jones was signed earlier this year after playing in the Canadian Football League.

Johnathan Hankins
Hankins is fully healthy as the Giants begin their offseason work this week.

Hankins was ruled out for the season after tearing his pectoral muscle in November of last year, but has since fully recovered in time for this week's offseason work. One of the league's better young interior defensive linemen, Hankins boasts 81 tackles and seven sacks in 25 games over the past two seasons, and could benefit further from playing alongside offseason signing Damon Harrison this year.

Geremy Davis
The Giants have announced the signing of sixth-round wide receiver Geremy Davis.

The University of Connecticut product regressed last year after snagging 71 passes for 1,085 yards the previous season. He followed it up with 44 catches for 51 yards.

Donte Foster
The Vikings announced they added quarterback Chandler Harnish, receiver Donte Foster and safety Pierre Warren to the practice squad. Quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson was released from the squad.
Ereck Flowers
Giants rookie offensive tackle Ereck Flowers has been ruled out for the rest of the game Sunday against Atlanta with a sprained ankle, per The Record.
Brad Wing
Wing has signed a contract extension with the Giants through the 2019 season.

Wing was acquired from the Steelers last year, when he finished 2015 with a 44.5-yard punt average. The Australian also pinned 33 of his 76 punts inside the 20-yard line. According to's Ian Rapoport, Wing's three-year extension is worth $6.45 million.

Eli Manning
Manning completed 24 of 43 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He also lost a fumble.

The veteran could have had a bigger day, but the Giants' success on the ground and his inability to create many big plays capped his production. Despite his team's inability to make the playoffs yet again, Manning actually enjoyed one of the best statistical seasons of his career, setting a new personal best of 35 touchdown passes and generating 4,436 yards through the air. A coaching change is expected to occur in New York this offseason, but Manning should have the supporting cast to remain productive regardless of who is at the helm next season.

Donte Deayon
No Updates
Adam Gettis
The Giants declared linebacker Devon Kennard (toe), wideout Corey Washington, cornerback Jayron Hosley, offensive linemen Adam Gettis and Eric Herman, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton and tight end Jerome Cunningham inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Emmett Cleary
The Bengals placed tight end Alex Smith (biceps) on injured reserve, released tight end Ryan Otten and signed offensive lineman Emmett Cleary to the practice squad.
Uani' Unga
Unga (neck) is active for Sunday's game in Washington.

Prior to missing three of the last four games due to a neck injury, Unga was among the Giants' leaders in tackles, but Jasper Brinkley has assumed mostly regular duty at middle linebacker during that span. As a result, Unga can't be trusted to match his output from the first half of the season.

Undisclosed - IR.
Ryan Nassib
Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib finished up Sunday night's 27-0 loss to the Eagles. Although he took two sacks, Nassib completed 4 of 5 passes for 60 yards without a turnover.

He'll go back to the bench for Week 7 at Dallas.

Dwayne Harris
Harris finished the year with 36 catches for 396 yards and four touchdowns. He also had 631 kick and 341 punt return yards and scored on one of each.

Harris was a valuable contributor to the Giants both as a part-time receiver and return man and should reprise those roles next year. In leagues that don't count return yards, he won't have much value, however.

Ryan Seymour
Browns backup center Ryan Seymour was suspended Monday for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Seymour, who appeared in 11 games in 2014, is in his third NFL season.
Myles White
With Odell Beckham out, White could see more work Sunday, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

White is slated to start in Beckham's Z receiver spot, and if Dwayne Harris, who's battling a shoulder injury is also out, White could have a significant role.

Stansly Maponga
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Weston Richburg
As a rookie, Giants lineman Weston Richburg was moved from his natural position at center to play left guard for 15 games. Now, after New York released incumbent starter J.D. Walton, Richburg is happy to be home in the middle, per 

"I am in control of things," Richburg said of the center position. 

Richburg will be anchoring a Giants line that is in flux, with five new players at the five line positions. The 6-foot-3, 296-pound Richburg started 45 games at center while at Colorado State, but spent his rookie season learing on the fly at left guard. 

"Compared to last year, I feel very comfortable where I am at," he said. "After doing that last year, I think it is easy to come inside and make that transition. There are still some things you have to get used to, but I did those things in college. It’ll be an adjustment, but not as much as it was going to guard."

Bobby Hart
The Giants have announced the signings of fifth-round pick and safety Mykkele Thompson and seventh-round guard Bobby Hart, per They are their first draftees of the six to sign.

Thompson is expected to compete for playing time at free safety. He started 31 games at Texas and recorded 213 tackles and a pair of interceptions.

Hart will attempt to make the transition from tackle, where he started every game for Florida State over the last two seasons and earned All-ACC honors both years.

Bennett Jackson
The Giants placed offensive lineman Will Beatty (pectoral) on the PUP list Tuesday, which means he will miss at the least the first six weeks of the 2015 season.

The Giants also placed Josh Gordy (hip) and Bennett Jackson (knee) on injured reserve, while waived-injured Brandon Mosley (back) and Akeem Hunt (hamstring).

Darius Powe

Jay Bromley
Bromley's attorney, Alex Spiro, told Jordan Raanan of on Friday that his client was "officially cleared of all wrongdoing" in connection with an alleged rape at a New York City hotel on Jan. 30.

Less than two weeks removed from the allegation, Bromley will avoid any charges. The second-year defensive tackle is coming off a campaign in which he ranked fifth on the defensive front in snaps, earning 41 percent of them. Such usage translated to 36 tackles (19 solo) in 16 games.

Dillon Farrell
49ers quarterback Josh Johnson, wide receiver Bruce Ellington, wide receiver Quinton Patton, cornerback Tramaine Brock, linebacker Dan Skuta, guard/center Dillon Farrell and nose tackle Ian Williams were all ruled inactive Week 11 at N.Y. Giants.
Trevin Wade
The Lions announced several practice squad roster moves on Monday, according to the Detroit Free Press. The team signed the following players to the practice squad: Tight end Jordan Thompson, cornerback Trevin Wade and defensive tackle Roy Philon.
Mykkele Thompson
Thompson (achilles) has taken part in the Giants' offseason program over the past few weeks, Jordan Raanan of Advanced Media reports.

Thompson tore his Achilles and was placed on injured reserve during the preseason last year, but he appears to be recovering nicely, running and cutting in on-field drills. It's unclear if he's back to full health at this time, but he seems to be well on his way to being fully recovered for the 2016 season.

Nat Berhe
Berhe (calf) was a full participant in offseason minicamp, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

Berhe missed all of last season after undergoing surgery to remove a hardened blood clot from his calf. Prior to his injury, Berhe was competing for a starting role at safety next to Landon Collins, and he'll look to do that again for the coming year.

Jonathan Casillas
Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Cowboys, the Giants' official site reports.

While he's available to the Giants' linebacking corps, Casillas will likely yield most of the reps on the strong side to Devon Kennard (hamstring). Either way, Casillas holds little sway in IDP leagues with 23 tackles (13 solo) and one sack on his ledger to date.

Keenan Robinson
Robinson has done well in offseason workouts and is a likely candidate for the Giants' starting MLB spot, Ralph Vacchiano of Daily News reports.

Robinson was signed as a free agent in March after being with the Redskins for four years. As of now it seems he's the favorite to be the Giants' Week 1 starter, but how much he plays is likely dependent on how healthy he is. Since he entered the league in 2012, Robinson has played 36 games and missed 28 due to injury, and he's never played more than 13 games in a single season. Along with staying healthy, he'll also have to fend off Jasper Brinkley, B.J. Goodson, and Kelvin Sheppard for the starting spot.

Jake Rodgers
The Falcons announced on Saturday that five draft picks are now under contract. 

In addition to fifth-round pick Grady Jarrett, announced on Friday, the Falcons have signed second-round CB Jalen Collins, fourth-round WR Justin Hardy, seventh rounders G Jake Rodgers and S Akeem King

Sterling Shepard
Shepard ran with the first team and caught more passes than anyone during the Giants minicamp, including a touchdown from quarterback Eli Manning, the team's web site reports. "He's going to be a phenomenal player," said fellow wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. "He can run routes. He can catch. He pretty much can do it all."

Beckham's praise aside, Shepard should have a significant role from Day 1 even if Victor Cruz is able to make it back to full speed.

Landon Collins
Collins had 112 tackles (84) solo, nine passes defensed and one interception during his rookie season.

Those tackle numbers placed him sixth among defensive backs, but Collins was far better in run support than in pass coverage. That said, he improved as the season went along and is expected to be one of the team's core defensive players heading into 2016.

Shane Vereen
Vereen caught two of five targets for 21 yards and added a three-yard rush in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Last week's 12-touch game appears to have been an exception, not a rule, as it is the only contest out of the past six in which Vereen has recored double-digit touches. It's been feast or famine all season for the shifty, pass-catching back, with three eight-catch games on the season, but eight games of two or fewer receptions. The Giants close out the season against a deflated Eagles team that is rudderless on defense. Vereen could make an impact if he were to see enough touches - but that's too big of an if to count on.

Justin Currie
The Giants announced Wednesday they signed safety Jeromy Miles, who is entering his sixth NFL season. He has played for the Ravens and Bengals.

The team also waived wide receiver Marcus Harris and safety Justin Currie. Harris missed the 2014 season due to a hip injury, while Currie was signed a rookie free agent in May.

Mark Herzlich
Herzlich (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game at Washington.

Upgraded from out to questionable Saturday, Herzlich's domain remains special teams, from which he's accrued 20 tackles (11 solo) in 10 games this season.

Logan Thomas
Thomas was claimed off of waivers by the Giants on Friday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Thomas was cut by the Dolphins on Thursday after spending the 2015-16 season on their practice squad. He now heads to New York, where he will likely be the number three quarterback behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib. The Giants waived fellow quarterback B.J. Daniels to make room for Thomas on the roster.

Olivier Vernon
The Giants have signed Vernon, reports. Per NFL Network, his deal is a five-year, $85 million contract.

After applying their transition tag to Vernon, the Dolphins changed course Wednesday, allowing Vernon -- who is is coming off a 2015 season in which he recorded 61 tackles and 7.5 sacks -- to hit free agency. The Giants then moved in quickly, securing the services of the 25-year-old defensive end, who will provide a huge boost to the team's pass rush.

Louis Nix
Nix was waived by the 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.

Ryan Malleck
No Updates
Bobby Rainey
Rainey has signed with the Giants, reports.

Rainey played in all 16 games for the Buccaneers last season, with the vast majority of his contributions coming on special teams as a kick and punt returner. Although he played well at running back for the Bucs' league-worst 2014 team, Rainey's role with the Giants will likely be rooted in special teams work, with his presence simply providing depth in the backfield.

Marshall Newhouse
The Giants have completely remodeled their offensive line unit for the start of organized team activities.

Compared to last year's o-line, only two players are back but even those guys have switched positions and shifted along the line. Justin Pugh has gone from right tackle to left guard and Weston Richburg shifted from left guard to center.

Will Beatty, who was a mainstay at left tackle last season, will miss five to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty's injury has paved the way for rookie Ereck Flowers to step in at the left tackle position.

Quaterback Eli Manning is still adjusting to all the moving pieces in front of him.

"Obviously, having a new center can be an adjustment," Manning said. "But (Weston) Richburg was here last year and I got snaps with him last year, so that hasn't been a big deal. Anytime you have a rookie at left tackle, it can be an adjustment."

Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry are splitting time at right guard, while Marshall Newhouse has been taking the snaps at right tackle.

Kadron Boone
The Colts announced Monday they have waived four players, including running back Jeff Demps, who was never able to translate his world-class speed into the NFL. 

In addition to Demps, the Colts released WR Kadron Boone, DE Gannon Conway and OT Matt Hall

Will Johnson
The Giants and Johnson agreed to a two-year contract Monday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

An undrafted free agent in 2011, Johnson was active for all but one game with the Steelers since making his NFL debut in 2012. However, his usage was scaled back last season due to the presence of Roosevelt Nix, who logged more snaps on both offense (14 versus eight percent) and special teams (55 versus 49 percent). Upon joining the Giants, Johnson's ability to line up at fullback, running back, and tight end should help in the competition with fellow FB Nikita Whitlock.

Romeo Okwara
No Updates
Kelvin Sheppard
Sheppard has signed with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of reports.

The 28-year-old, who racked up 105 tackles in 16 games for the Dolphins last season, bolsters the Giants' depth at linebacker, but it remains to be seen if his role in the New York defense will allow him to approach triple-digit tackles again in 2016.

Byron Stingily
The Titans re-signed offensive tackle Byron Stingily to a two-year deal, reports the National Football Post. Stingily, 26, has appeared in 20 games over the past three years with Tennessee, starting nine.
Tyler Ott
The Rams reached the NFL's 75-man roster limit Tuesday with the release of 13 players, per, who include: OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond, CB Imoan Claiborne, S Jay Hughes, LB Keshaun Malone, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy, WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley (waived/injured), LB Korey Toomer (waived/injured), C David Wang, WR Damian Williams (contract terminated) and DT Doug Worthington.

CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on injured reserve. The Rams had previously waived/injured receiver Isiah Ferguson but he reverted to injured reserve with a torn ACL.

Ben Edwards
Edwards (knee) was waived-injured Wednesday after being diagnosed with a torn ACL over the weekend, Jordan Raanan of NJ Advance Media reports.

The former Richmond Spider spent most of the 2015 season on the practice squad and was active for the final two seasons of the campaign. He was carted off the field for precautionary reasons during a minicamp practice in April and he ultimately tore his ACL during rookie minicamp over the weekend. Edwards was waived in order to clear room on the 90-man roster for a tryout player.

Devon Kennard
Kennard (hamstring) was placed on IR to make roster room for Odell Beckham (suspension.)

Kennard should return as the team's strong side linebacker in 2016.

Brad Bars

Tavarres King
The Buccaneers re-signed quarterback Mike Kafka and wideout Tavarres King to their practice squad, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Jerell Adams
The Giants selected Adams in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 184th overall.

Adams was widely expected to go in the third or fourth round, so this should turn out to be a nice value for the Giants. It's also a close to ideal landing spot for Adams -- unheralded tight ends like Larry Donnell and Will Tye have made fantasy impacts with the Giants in recent years, and Adams is almost certainly more talented. Standing at 6-foot-5, 247 pounds, Adams showed 4.64 speed at the Combine.

Justin Pugh
The Giants have completely remodeled their offensive line unit for the start of organized team activities.

Compared to last year's o-line, only two players are back but even those guys have switched positions and shifted along the line. Justin Pugh has gone from right tackle to left guard and Weston Richburg shifted from left guard to center.

Will Beatty, who was a mainstay at left tackle last season, will miss five to six months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Beatty's injury has paved the way for rookie Ereck Flowers to step in at the left tackle position.

Quaterback Eli Manning is still adjusting to all the moving pieces in front of him.

"Obviously, having a new center can be an adjustment," Manning said. "But (Weston) Richburg was here last year and I got snaps with him last year, so that hasn't been a big deal. Anytime you have a rookie at left tackle, it can be an adjustment."

Geoff Schwartz and John Jerry are splitting time at right guard, while Marshall Newhouse has been taking the snaps at right tackle.

Zak DeOssie
The Giants are missing a handful of defensive contributors in Week 6 against the Bears Thursday, but five of eight players listed on the injury report from that side of the ball were able to play.

Defensive back Terrell Thomas (knee), defensive linemen Damontre Moore (hamstring) and Linval Joseph (ankle), and linebackers Mark Herzlich (toe) and Zak DeOssie (back) were all able to play through their injuries Thursday. 

Jasper Brinkley
Brinkley is currently considered the frontrunner to start at middle linebacker despite the offseason addition of Keenan Robinson, the Giants' official site reports.

Last season, Brinkley assumed the starting MLB role in early November after Jon Beason landed on IR, and ultimately finished third on the team in tackles (67) and first in forced fumbles (4). However, the Giants signed fellow MLB Keenan Robinson to a richer contract than that of Brinkley in March, which left many to quickly assume the starting MLB job was all Robinson's. However, the Giants rotated first team linebackers throughout their offseason program, but, unlike Robinson, Brinkley was the player who aligned exclusively at middle linebacker. Meanwhile, Robinson was moved around and experimented with at OLB. Training camp will further illuminate the Giants' plans for their new-look defensive front.

B.J. Goodson

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) returned to Sunday's game in Washington, John Clayton of ESPN reports.

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact injury early in the second quarter, requiring help to leave the field. While he was initially deemed questionable to return, he was able to do so and will likely line up across from Jayron Hosley, as long as remains in the game.
