Raymond primarily served as a kick and punt returner with both teams (14 kick returns for 271 yards and 18 punt returns for 99 yards), and was unable to carve out much of an offensive role with either team. The 23-year-old fumbled five times in 2017 (one lost), and will need to improve his ball security in order to have a chance at a roster spot next season.
Raymond was promoted to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
The Giants appear to be doing some shuffling around at this point in the season in order to get a closer look at some of the talent that's within the organization. Raymond signed with New York's practice squad for the second time this season two weeks ago and will now get an opportunity to join the team's wide receiver corps.
The Giants signed Raymond to their practice squad Wednesday, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.
Raymond returns to the organization just a day after being released from the practice squad. He'll take the spot of defensive lineman Jordan Williams, who was promoted to the 53-man roster in a prior transaction.

With the Giants dealing with a slew of injuries to their front seven, the team signed linebacker Trevor Bates to the practice squad and was forced to let go of Raymond as a result. Raymond originally signed on with the team nearly three weeks ago.

The Giants are lacking depth in the receiving corps after adding Brandon Marshall (ankle), Odell Beckham (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) to injured reserve this week. As a result, Ed Eagan was promoted to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, opening up a spot for Raymond on the practice squad. Should the Giants suffer any more injuries, the 23-year-old could find himself on the active roster as well.
