After initially announcing that he had been waived, the Giants have have traded linebacker B.J Goodson to the Packers, as confirmed by SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. To replace him, they signed former Panthers and 49ers linebacker David Mayo.
Goodson was a fourth-round draft pick for the Giants in 2016 and went on to appear in 37 games (20 starts) at linebacker for Big Blue over three seasons. He played in 15 games (13 starts) in 2018, making 61 tackles and grabbing two interceptions.
However, with the Giants shifting defensive schemes this season, Goodson struggled to find a role and saw his reps gradually diminish as training camp and preseason progressed.
