Giants sign LB James Morris to active roster; waive CB Leon McFadden


The Giants have signed LB James Morris off of the team's Practice Squad, and waived CB Leon McFadden.

At Iowa, Morris was just the sixth player in school history to record 400 career tackles, and he was the first linebacker to lead the team in sacks since they became an official NCAA statistic in 1986. He finished his four-year career with 400 tackles, 26 tackles for losses, 10.5 sacks and six interceptions. As a senior in 2013, he started all 13 games at middle linebacker and finished second on the team with 107 tackles (53 solo), and led the team in interceptions (four), tackles for loss (18) and sacks (eight).
