Giants sign WR James Washington to practice squad


The Giants today added veteran wide receiver James Washington to the practice squad and signed guard Solomon Kindley to a reserve/future contract.

Following a foot injury suffered during training camp, Washington played in two games for the Dallas Cowboys this season.

The 5-foot-11, 213-pound receiver signed with the Cowboys after four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers in which he caught 114 passes for 1,629 yards and 11 touchdowns across 60 games.

His best campaign came in 2019, when he recorded 44 receptions on 80 targets for 735 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games (10 starts). He went on to catch five touchdown passes in 16 games the following season.

Washington was a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft (No. 60 overall) following a successful collegiate career at Oklahoma State. He earned Second-Team All-Big Ten honors his sophomore year after catching 53 passes for 1,087 yards and 10 touchdowns. Washington then registered 71 receptions for 1,380 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior before finishing with 74 receptions for 1,549 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior. He was named First-Team All-Big Ten both years.

Washington earned Unanimous All-American honors for his performance his senior year, in addition to winning the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wide receiver.

The Giants originally signed Kindley to the practice squad on Oct. 5. The 6-foot-4, 339-pound offensive lineman was a fourth-round pick (No. 111 overall) by Miami in 2020 and went on to play 29 games with 15 starts across two seasons with the Dolphins.
