The player moves for the 2015 Giants continue today with the formation of a 10-man practice squad and the possible signing of some players waived by other teams on Saturday.
What's on tap for today, Sunday, Sept 6:
[sny-box]Claiming period for players placed on waivers at the final roster reduction will expire at 12:00 noon, New York time.
Upon receipt of the Personnel Notice at approximately 1:00 p.m., New York time, clubs may establish a Practice Squad of 10 players. No club, including the player’s prior club, will be permitted to sign a player to a Practice Player Contract until all clubs have received simultaneous notification via the above Personnel Notice that such player’s prior NFL player contract has been terminated via the waiver system.
After 4:00 p.m., New York time, a club is permitted to place a player on Reserve/Injured as “Designated for Return.”[/sny-box]
It's possible there could be a player or two on the waiver wire that may pique the interest of the Giants. It's not likely that many of those players are upgrades from what they already have.
There are several players released who could end up back on the Giants' practice squad today: OT Sean Donnelly, DE Brad Bars and RB Kenneth Harper are three possibles.
[sny-accordion title="NFL practice squad eligibility rules"]
Eligibility: (a) The Practice Squad shall consist of the following players, provided that they have not served more than two previous seasons on a Practice Squad: (i) players who do not have an Accrued Season of NFL experience; and (ii) free agent players who were on the Active List for fewer than nine regular season games during their only Ac- crued Season(s). An otherwise eligible player may be a Practice Squad player for a third season only if the Club by which he is employed that season has at least 53 players on its Active/Inactive List during the entire period of his employment.
(b) A player shall be deemed to have served on a Practice Squad in a season if he has passed the club’s physical and been a member of the club’s Practice Squad for at least three regular season or postseason games during his first two Practice Squad seasons, and for at least one regular season or postseason game during his third Practice Squad season. (For purposes of this Section, a bye week counts as a game provided that the player is not terminated until after the regular season or postseason weekend in question.)[/sny-accordion]
I also don't see them putting anyone on the IR/Designated for Return list. They will reserve that spot in case a key player gets hurt early in the season.
