With Will Hill coming back from suspension, and the Giants dealing with beaten up secondary, the Giants have made some more roster moves.
To activate Will Hill, the Giants surprisingly had to put Aaron Ross on season ending injured reserve. Ross injured his back last week against the Chiefs.
Hill is in his 2nd year, but has gotten suspended twice. He has a world of talent, flying all over the field, but he has had problems staying on it. The safety did not start one game last year but played in 12, racking up 30 tackles (26 solo), 2 passes defended and a forced fumble. On special teams, he was tied for 3rd in tackles with 13 total.
Ross was signed this off season just for depth purposes, but with Corey Webster going down two weeks ago with an injury, Ross has been playing on the outside opposite Prince. He has been a little inconsistent, but was getting the job done.
Training camp stand out, cornerback Charles James, was signed from the practice squad to help the injured secondary as well. James, a rookie from Charleston Southern has a great nose for the ball and is also a good punt returner. He caught the eye of coaches with his punt return ability, having him playing in every preseason game.
To make room for Charles James, the Giants cut offensive lineman Dallas Reynolds who was signed on Tuesday when they released Da’Rel Scott. Reynolds started 14 games at center for the Eagles last year.
This secondary is very, very thin. Terrell Thomas is not the healthiest of players, and Hosley is out as well. We need a speedy recovery and great games by players like McBride and Prince to hold the fort down.
