The Giants released Becton (ankle) with an injury settlement Wednesday.
Becton was placed on injured reserve after injuring his ankle late in the preseason, but he will now be free to find a new home after he and the Giants agreed to an injury settlement. He will likely now pursue a reserve role with another club.
Becton (ankle/wrist) was placed on injured reserve, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Becton turned his ankle in the Giants' preseason finale while battling for a depth line position. He's not a candidate for activation off of IR and will be done for the season unless he reaches an injury settlement with the team.
Becton injured his ankle during Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports.
The extent of Becton's injury isn't clear. The Virginia Tech product is competing for a depth role along the Giants offensive line.
Becton was signed to the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Becton has been on the Chiefs' practice squad since late October after being let go by the Lions at roster cutdowns in September. The 27-year-old is likely to serve as a depth option in his new team's offensive line rotation.
The Chiefs signed Becton to their practice squad Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.
With the Chiefs dealing with a couple of injuries on the offensive line, they'll bring in Becton to add some insurance and depth, though they won't add him to the 53-man roster just yet. Becton spent the offseason with the Lions before being released at the start of the regular season.
Becton was released by the Lions on Saturday, WXYZ Detroit reports.
Becton is a vested veteran who is immediately eligible to sign elsewhere.
Becton signed a contract Monday with the Lions, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
The Lions are the fifth team Becton has joined since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He'll need to impress in training camp and the preseason in order to secure a reserve role at tackle.
