Hamilton signed a one-year contract with the Giants on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Giants allowed Hamilton to briefly test the free-agent market by opting not to extend him a tender, and now bring the depth cornerback back for 2019. Hamilton played a reliable role on special teams for the G-Men last season, but did not see a single defensive snap.
Hamilton will not be tendered, making the cornerback a free agent March 13, Pro Football Talk reports. Hamilton never played a defensive snap in 2018, but did become one of the more valuable special teams gunners in the NFL during his third season. The Giants are reportedly interested in bringing back the 26-year-old in the offseason.
Hamilton (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Hamilton sustained an undisclosed quadriceps injury during Sunday's shutout loss to the Titans, the severity of which now lands him on season-ending injured reserve. The 25-year-old did not play a single defensive snap this season so his absence won't impact fantasy teams, but the Giants will miss Hamilton's reliability on special teams.
Hamilton (quad) left the locker room on crutches after Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Titans, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. This news certainly doesn't bode well for Hamilton's Week 16 status at Indianapolis. He has only been a special-teams player this season, so the injury won't affect fantasy teams.
Hamilton (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Hamilton was inactive for Week 4 after suffering a groin injury against the Texans the week prior. He'll serve as a depth option at cornerback this weekend in Carolina with starter Eli Apple (groin) also returning in a full capacity this week.
