The Giants made two new additions to their depleted wide receivers corp.
The team signed free agents T.J. Jones and Amba Etta-Tawo following a workout on Saturday while they placed wide receiver Corey Coleman on the injured reserve. They also waived kicker Joey Slye.
Coleman tore his ACL on Thursday, the same day that Sterling Shepard fractured the tip of his thumb. Prior to Saturday's practice, it was discovered that receiver Golden Tate was appealing a four-game suspension for violating the league' PED policy.
Jones and Etta-Tawo will give the Giants some more depth at the very least, while they try to compete for a spot on the team.
Jones, 27, spent the last five seasons in Detroit but played in just 42 games with the Lions. Last year, the sixth-round pick out of Notre Dame had 19 catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games (three starts).
Etta-Tawo, 25, was an invite the Giants camp last summer and was added to the practice squad. He was removed from the practice squad in October and signed to the Texans' practice squad for the rest of the season. The undrafted Syracuse product has not played a regular season NFL game.
