The Giants have cut G Patrick Omameh before he could finish his first season with the team, head coach Pat Shurmur said on Saturday.

GM Dave Gettleman was looking to solve the Giants' offensive line woes this past offseason, which led to Omameh signing a three-year, $15 million deal to be the team's new right guard. However, that quickly proved to be the wrong move, as the Giants having to bench him after Week 6. 

After claiming former Rams G Jamon Brown off waivers during the bye week, he could be seeing a start in his first game suiting up for Big Blue. Releasing Omameh before Week 10 also helps the Giants in terms of comp picks in next year's NFL Draft.

Needing more offensive line help, the Giants nabbed former Rams G Jamon Brown off waivers on Wednesday, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

Brown was released Tuesday by the Rams, who he was drafted by in the third round back in 2015. While serving as a starter for all 16 games last season, he has played in five games this year with no starts. 

Brown was suspended for the first two games of the season due to an arrest during a traffic stop. Marijuana was found in his car, which violates the NFL's substance abuse policy. He pleaded guilty to speeding and aggravated DUI, and was sentenced to four days' house arrest as well as fines.

Giants left tackle Nate Solder (neck) will play Monday night after being limited in practice, but right guard Patrick Omameh (knee) will not despite being listed as questionable.

The Giants have decided to bench the interior lineman and start Spencer Pulley instead, according to NJ.com.

Pulley, claimed off waivers by the Giants on Sept. 2, will likely start at center and John Greco will move to Omameh's spot at right guard.
