EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants this afternoon made several roster moves to conclude their first full-squad day of training camp.

They added two players, signing free agent kicker Joey Slye and claiming off waivers wide receiver Da’Mari Scott, who was released yesterday by the Buffalo Bills.

The Giants also terminated the contract of defensive back Tony Lippett and received a commissioner’s exemption for defensive back Kamrin Moore, who was suspended by the team last week after his alleged involvement in a domestic violence incident. Moore does not count against the 90-man roster.

Slye, a rookie from Virginia Tech, was with the Giants from May 6 to May 14.

Scott, 6-0 and 205 pounds, played in three games for the Bills last season, but did not have a reception. He entered the NFL in 2018 as a rookie free agent with the Cleveland Browns. Scott was on the Browns’ practice squad and then the active roster before his release on Dec. 1. He was signed to the Bills’ practice squad four days later and to Buffalo’s active roster on Dec. 8, and played in the team’s final three games.

Lippett was signed by the Giants on Oct. 25, 2018 and played in three games for the team. He

made his Giants debut vs. Chicago on Dec. 2, and had one solo tackle and one pass defensed in the season finale vs. Dallas (12/30).

  Lippett, then a member of the Miami Dolphins, missed the entire 2017 season after being placed on injured reserve on Sept. 2 with a torn Achilles tendon.
