The Giants cut Wing on Saturday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Wing was the Giants' punter in every game for the previous three seasons. However, they have opted to go another route going forward. Austin Rehkow will likely get the first opportunity to earn the role, but the team figures to bring in some competition as well. Wing will now look for a new location to land.
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 gross punt average. The Australian also pinned 33 of his 76 punts inside the 20-yard line. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Wing's three-year extension is worth $6.45 million.
The Giants have acquired punter Brad Wing from the Steelers for a future late-round draft pick, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Wing will replace the released Steve Weatherford.
Wing averaged 43.7 yards per punt last season for Pittsburgh.
The Steelers have re-signed punter Brad Wing to a one-year deal, the team announced Friday.
Wing had 61 punts for Pittsburgh in 2014 for 2,668, avergaing 43.7 yards per attempt. He ranked 26th in the league with a 39.5 net yards average on the season.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said recently-signed punter Brad Wing has matured.
“It's a no-lose situation for us,” Colbert told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “He got married recently and has a child, and players mature as the years go. If we weren't comfortable with (his) character, we don't sign him.”
Incumbent punter Mat McBriar is a free agent.
