PRACTICE SQUAD MOVES…
The New York Giants have signed offensive tackle Brian Mihalik to the Practice Squad. The 26-year old, 6’9”, 315-pound Mihalik was originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. A collegiate defensive end converted to offensive tackle, Mihalik has spent time with the Eagles (2015), Pittsburgh Steelers (2016), and Detroit Lions (2016-2017). Mihalik played in 15 games with two starts for the Lions in 2017.
“I was with Brian back in Philly, actually, and he’s played a little bit in the NFL and we like him, so we just added him to the practice squad,” said Head Coach Pat Shurmur. “We’re always looking to make changes and get better so, this is a guy that we like.”
To make room for Mihalik, the Giants terminated the Practice Squad of linebacker Calvin Munson.
