Dixon was waived by the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.
Dixon spent most of the 2017 season with New York, though he wasn't promoted from the Giants' practice squad until November. He'll become an unrestricted free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Dixon (heel/hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Dixon will make his third consecutive start since getting promoted to the active roster in late November. In his first two contests, he posted eight tackles, four pass breakups and one forced fumble.
Dixon (heel/hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Dixon has been on the active roster for less than three weeks, but he's logged 60-plus defensive snaps in each of his last two games, posting eight tackles, four pass breakups and one forced fumble. He'll likely pick up another start at cornerback if he's able to shake off the lower-body issue prior to Sunday's game.
Dixon has been on the Giants' practice squad since mid-October, but with Eli Apple still away from the team and Janoris Jenkins potentially needing season-ending ankle injury, the defensive back will be brought up to add some depth to the secondary. Dixon last played in the regular season in 2014 with Tampa Bay, logging eight tackles and an interception in 14 games.
