Giants sign 12 players to practice squad


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants announced the first 12 members of their 16-player practice squad. Each of them was released by the team on Tuesday.

Four of them are veterans: Wide receiver Cole Beasley, linebacker Oshane Ximines, tackle Tyre Phillips, and cornerback Amani Oruwariye. Teams are permitted a maximum of six veterans on their practice squad.

Joining them are quarterback Tommy DeVito; tight end Ryan Jones; defensive tackle Ryder Anderson; linebackers Darrian Beavers, Tomon Fox and Dyontae Johnson; and defensive backs Alex Cook and Gemon Green.

The larger and more experienced practice squad provides each team with players who can join the active roster and help more quickly.

"The practice squad has evolved to where there are some players that you know are going to be ready to go right away that have played in football games, that know the system, that you can put in right away," coach Brian Daboll said. "And there's other players that maybe aren't ready quite yet to play in a regular-season game, but you think there's something to develop. So, there's a couple of different categories of players that are on our practice squad, all of which we think can help contribute, just probably in different roles right now.

"I think it's good. The more guys you can have out here, and again, there's injuries, there's a bunch of stuff that happens, so to me, it's just really an extension of the roster."
