EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today released kicker Chandler Catanzaro, who joined the team on Aug. 1.
"I appreciate what Chandler did for us. I have a lot of respect for him," coach Joe Judge said.
Judge did not announce a replacement, though numerous published reports have the Giants soon adding former Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano.
"We're not going into all the details in terms of the exact move until things are finalized," Judge said. "But I will tell you we informed Chandler this morning we did move on from him. I will just say he did a tremendous job for us. I have a lot of respect for him; he's definitely an NFL kicker. I think he made the right decision coming out of retirement.
"We were lucky enough to have exposure to him for a small window of the season, and I wish him luck along the way."

*The Giants did announce the signing of free agent defensive tackle Daylon Mack.
A 6-1, 340-pounder, Mack played in one game in 2019 for the Baltimore Ravens (Sept. 29 vs. Cleveland). He was not credited with a tackle.
Mack was a fifth-round draft choice (No. 160 overall) last year by the Ravens out of Texas A&M. He was released by Baltimore on Aug. 1 and signed the following day by the Detroit Lions, who waived him on Aug. 7.
