Giants Waive OT Charles Brown, Sign LB Justin Anderson: The New York Giants waived offensive tackle Charles Brown on Saturday. Brown played at right tackle last Sunday against the 49ers when Justin Pugh left the game early with an quadriceps injury. Brown struggled in the game. A former 2nd round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints, Brown was one of the veteran free agent offensive linemen General Manager Jerry Reese signed in the offseason in an attempt to shore up the offensive line.
With Justin Pugh still unavailable for Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, it is expected that Geoff Schwartz will start at right tackle, though James Brewer also remains a possibility.
Anderson was signed from the team’s practice squad. He was originally signed by the Giants as a rookie free agent after the 2014 NFL Draft. The Giants added him to the 53-man roster last Saturday too before waiving him and re-signing him to the practice squad on Wednesday. Last week against the 49ers, Anderson did not see time on defense but played on special teams.
