The Giants have waived/injured defensive back Mykkele Thompson and signed linebacker Jimmy Herman, the team announced Thursday morning.
Drafted by the Giants in the fifth round in 2015, Thompson has played in just one regular-season game, as he's battled with multiple injuries during his NFL tenure. During his first year he tore his Achilles tendon in the preseason opener. A year later, he injured his knee and placed on injured reserve by late September.
Herman, undrafted out of Purdue, recorded 138 tackles over four college seasons.
