The Giants are bringing in some more linebacker reinforcements, as the team announced the addition of LB Devante Downs, who was signed off the practice squad on Tuesday.
Downs, a seventh-round pick in 2018 by the Vikings, has been on the Giants practice squad since Minnesota waived him at the end of September. He played in the Vikings' Week 2 and 3 games, but was cut shortly after.
Mainly a special teams player in 2018, Downs played in 11 games for the Vikings, collecting only three tackles. But with the Giants needing some more depth at the linebacker position, it makes sense the Cal product was promoted.
