The Giants cut down their team to 53 men on Saturday, but it's switching up a little bit as GM Dave Gettleman makes waivers claims from other players cut throughout the NFL.
Here are the Giants' moves, all confirmed by SNY's Ralph Vacchiano...
WR Cody Core
Core has been with the Bengals since 2016 when he was drafted out of the sixth round, but Cincinnati decided to part ways with him this preseason. The Giants, though, will use his services with Alonzo Russell being the roster casualty to make room for him.
While Core is a tall receiver at 6-foot-3 and could provide depth in that room, his calling card is special teams. He's a solid option on that end, and though Russell earned his spot on the team after a solid preseason, the Giants like Core's skill set better. He's also a former teammate of Evan Engram from their days at Ole Miss.
OT Eric Smith
Offensive line depth was needed for the Giants, and they find it in Smith. The Virginia product went undrafted this year, but found a spot with the Jets this preseason and made the best of his situation. He played against the Giants in Week 1, and the team must've been impressed to claim him.
The Giants are thin at the tackle position, so Smith adds good depth there.
