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.
Francis previously spent a week with the Redskins in October, but didn't appear in a game. His chances of suiting up will be higher this time around with the Redskins playing their next game Thursday against the Giants and perhaps not having fellow defensive lineman Terrell McClain (toe) available for the short week.
Francis was waived by the Redskins on Wednesday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
Francis spent less than a week on the Redskins' roster after being signed as defensive line depth Oct. 19. Former Ravens offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom takes the 27-year-old's spot on the 53-man roster.
Francis last played for Washington but was waived in December 2016. With Jonathan Allen headed to injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury, Francis will look to add depth to the Redskins' defensive line.
