Omameh signed with the Jaguars on Tuesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Omameh was cut by the Giants on Nov. 10, just a few months after signing a three-year, $15 million deal with the club. He lost his starting job in Week 7, and will now look to revive his career with Jacksonville.
Omameh was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Duggan originally signed with New York in March. The Michigan product was expected to play a big part in rebuilding the Giants' offensive line, but fell in the depth chart when he lost his starting job in Week 7. In a corresponding move, the Giants activated wide receiver/punt returner Quadree Henderson from the practice squad.
Omameh (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice session.
Omameh was sidelined last week due to his knee injury and was limited Wednesday with the issue. He's expected to take on a backup role now that he's again healthy.
Omameh is inactive Monday against the Falcons due to a knee injury, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.
Omameh has been the starting right guard for the Giants, but it was expected that he was in line to be replaced by Spencer Pulley prior to the injury. The injury shouldn't have a great impact on the offense, barring injuries to the offensive line. Omameh is currently without a timetable for return.
Omameh has played in 53 regular-season games (with 44 starts) for the Buccaneers, Bears and Jaguars since going undrafted out of Michigan in 2013. He should be in competition for a starting job at guard after the Giants failed to lure in Andrew Norwell, who was the top available guard in this year's class of free agents.
