The Giants also waived linebacker Rory Johnson of Mississippi and defensive tackle Joshua Muse of Louisiana Tech, while terminating the contracts of tight end Eric Butler of Mississippi State and guard Carnell Stewart of LSU.
Seven players who attended the camp on a tryout basis were signed, including former Rutgers defensive tackle Nate Robinson, who finished his career at Akron.
