Francis was cut by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Francis was beat out by the likes of Kerry Wynn and Robert Thomas in terms of providing depth on the defensive line, but the former could have a chance to be claimed on waivers.
Francis has been in and out of the league since joining the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Most recently, he spent the 2017 campaign with the Redskins, where he saw his most extensive action of his career, tallying 18 tackles across six games. However, he was cut by the Redskins at the end of April, which allows the Giants to pick him up. Look for Francis to battle for a roster spot throughout training camp and the preseason.
Francis was released by the Redskins on Monday.
Francis signed with the Redskins in November of last season, but with the team drafting a pair of defensive linemen this past weekend, including Da'Ron Payne in the first round, Washington looks to be headed in a new direction with their defensive front. Terrell McClain was also released Monday.
