Munson signed a futures contract with New England on Tuesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Munson spent much of 2018 on the Patriots practice squad. He appeared in 14 games for the Giants as a rookie in 2017, totaling 60 tackles. He'll set his sights on securing a backup linebacker and special teams role with New England in 2019.
Munson (concussion) was waived by the Giants on Saturday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic New York reports.
Munson had a decent rookie season in 2017 as an undrafted free agent, but it looks like a hit to the head in the Giants' preseason win over the Lions derailed the linebackers chances of making the final roster again this year.
Munson (concussion) was not seen participating in Sunday's practice, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com reports.
While not official, Munson's absence from Sunday's practice suggests that he is in the league's concussion protocol after taking a hit to the head during Friday's preseason win over the Lions. He'll likely be out several days while he works towards being completely clear of all concussion-related symptoms.
Munson took a hit to the head during Friday's preseason win over the Lions and could be subjected to the league's concussion protocol as a result, The Athletic's Dan Duggan reports.
Munson was removed from Friday's tilt after taking a blow to the head, so he may need to clear the concussion protocol before eventually returning to practice. The second-year linebacker will continue to compete for a spot behind likely starters B.J. Goodson and Alec Ogletree upon his return.
