Severin was competing for deep reserve role within the Giants' receiving corps, so the fact that he's been waived isn't too surprising. He had been dealing with an injury in mid-August while trying out with the Steelers, though it's unclear if that played any role in this most recent development.
Severin was most recently released by the Steelers after suffering from an undisclosed injury, and he found a new home with the Giants after both Keeon Johnson and Kevin Snead were waived/injured. Severin will likely stick around with the team through training camp.
Severin (undisclosed) was released by the Steelers on Monday.
Severin had been competing for a depth role among a loaded receiving corps and was unlikely to make the squad even if he hadn't succumbed to an injury. He's now free to sign elsewhere, provided the injury isn't too significant.
Severin (undisclosed) was activated from the physically unable to perform list Sunday, Joe Rutter of TribLive.com reports
Severan was played on the PUP list Thrusday after failing to complete the team's conditioning test. He subsequently left the field on a cart. The 24-year-old is competing for a spot on the final roster, so his quick return to the field is a necessary step.
Severin was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday.
Severin failed his physical Thursday, which resulted in his placement on the PUP list, Dale Lolley of The Washington Observer-Reporter reports. It's unclear if Severin has an injury that caused him to fail or not at this point. Likely buried on the depth chart, Severin's chances of making the team will shrink the longer he's sidelined.
