Giants sign Emmanuel Acho to PS

Giants added linebacker Emmanuel Acho to the practice squad on Tuesday which filled the one spot that was left.

Many thought Adewale Ojomo would be taking his spot back after being released and clearing waivers, but apparently, that is not so.

Acho was drafted in the 6th round in 2012 by the Browns but quickly found himself on the IR with a knee injury.

From Cleveland, he went to Philly in a trade but was then released after a solid preseason.

Acho had some injury troubles at Texas but had a strong senior year with a team leading 131 tackles, 19 of which were for a loss. He can also get after the QB with 3 sacks and 18 QB pressures that year.
