New York Giants Sign WR Michael Clayton: The Giants have signed street free agent WR Michael Clayton. Clayton was drafted in the 1st round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers waived him in September. Since late October, he has been playing in the UFL.
To make room for Clayton, the Giants waived TE Jake Ballard, who they signed from the Practice Squad last Saturday. If unclaimed, the Giants will probably re-sign Ballard to the Practice Squad.
Eagles Sign Cornerback Off of Giants’ Practice Squad: The Philadelphia Eagles have signed CB Brandon Hughes off of the Giants’ Practice Squad. Hughes was signed by the Giants to their Practice Squad in September after he was waived by the San Diego Chargers.
Notes: The Giants lead the league in turnovers with 30, including 16 interceptions and 14 fumbles.
The Giants have not allowed a sack in any of their last three games, their longest streak keeping the quarterback upright since November 1972, when they played four games in a row without allowing a sack.
QB Eli Manning is the seventh quarterback in history to throw at least 20 touchdown passes in six consecutive seasons.
