NEW YORK GIANTS ROSTER MOVES…
The New York Giants have placed cornerback Brandon Williams (groin) on Injured Reserve. The 6’0”, 200-pound Williams was originally drafted in the 3rd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. The Giants signed him in late August 2020.
The Giants also signed quarterback Clayton Thorson and running back Alfred Morris to the team’s Practice Squad. To make room for these two, the Giants terminated the Practice Squad contracts of quarterback Cooper Rush and running back Rod Smith.
The 25-year old, 6’4”, 222-pound Thorson was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles cut him in August 2019 and he was then signed to the Practice Squad of the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys cut him in early September 2020.
The 31-year old, 5’10”, 222-pound Morris was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. He has spent time with the Redskins (2012-2015), Dallas Cowboys (2016-2017, 2019), San Francisco 49ers (2018), and Arizona Cardinals (2019). Morris has played in 105 regular-season games with 70 starts, carrying the ball 1,374 times for 5,935 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and 34 touchdowns. He also has caught 65 passes for 494 yards. Morris was second-team All-Pro in 2012 and was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2013 and 2014. He has not seen extensive action since 2018 when he carried the ball 111 times for 428 yards and two touchdowns.
The Giants claimed Rush off of waivers from the Dallas Cowboys in May 2020 and signed Smith to the Practice Squad in early September 2020.
