Giants' Devante Downs: Re-signs with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Downs re-signed with the Giants this week, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Downs, who's spent the past two seasons with the team, will stay in New York and continue to contribute on special teams and add depth at linebacker. The 2017 seventh-round pick totaled a career-high 33 tackles (25 solo) and a pass breakup through his 16 games in 2020 and will now aim to build on those numbers in 2021.

Devante Downs: Hits free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants didn't tender Downs a contract Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Downs started in eight of his 16 appearances with the Giants last season, recording a career-high 33 tackles (25 solo) to go with one pass breakup and one fumble recovery. He'll be free to begin negotiations with other teams.

Giants' Devante Downs: Slated to start Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Downs is on track to fill a starting role at one of the Giants' inside linebacker spots in Monday's season opener against the Steelers, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

A 2018 seventh-round pick, Downs has spent time on two different practice squads since entering the professional ranks and has four career NFL tackles to his name, but he suddenly finds himself starting in a prominent role after New York surprisingly cut Ryan Connelly last weekend. Coming off three straight 140-plus-tackle seasons with the Packers, Blake Martinez is the more intriguing IDP name of the Giants' two starters at inside linebacker, so Downs merely is just a name to monitor at this point.

Downs joined the Giants' active roster in mid-October and finished the season with one tackle in seven games. He will likely continue to serve as a reserve linebacker and special teamer over the course of next season.

Giants' Devante Downs: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Downs was promoted from the Giants' practice squad to the 53-man roster Tuesday.

Downs was waived by the Vikings in late September and landed on the Giants' practice squad shortly thereafter, and he'll now receive another chance on a 53-man roster. The 2017 seventh-round pick totaled three tackles in 13 total games with the Vikings and exclusively played special teams.

Vikings' Devante Downs: Ascends to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings promoted Downs to the active roster Saturday.

Downs will add depth at middle linebacker, but he'll mainly be used on special teams. He has 11 career games under his belt and three tackles (two solo).

Vikings' Devante Downs: Limited to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Downs played 12 snaps on special teams in Friday's preseason win over Seattle, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Downs suffered a knee injury last October but is back to full speed this preseason. However, he may be on the outside looking in for a final roster spot.
