NFL Workouts: Giants, WFT, Foreman

Here’s a look at some of today’s more notable auditions, courtesy of NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero (Twitter link):

  • The Giants worked out punters J.K. Scott, Kaare Vedvik, and Brandon Wright. For now, that job is held by Riley Dixon, though the Giants could just be keeping their emergency list up to date. Dixon, a former draft pick of Denver, is under contract through 2022 thanks to his three-year, $8.7MM deal.
  • The Washington Football Team auditioned running backs D’Onta Foreman and Ryquell Armstead. Foreman, recently released from Atlanta’s practice squad, also showed his stuff for the Raiders earlier this month. Foreman is best known for his rookie year with the Texans but hasn’t been the same since tearing his Achilles midway through that season.
  • The Packers are meeting with defensive ends Taco Charlton and R.J. McIntosh. Charlton, once a highly-touted first-round pick of the Cowboys, flamed out quickly in Dallas. His best work to date came with the Dolphins when he notched five sacks in ten games. Still, he had a decent 2020 with the Chiefs, up until his November leg fracture. In that shortened KC run, Charlton recorded two sacks, four quarterback hits, and a forced fumble.

Saints Cut Chris Hogan, Kevin White, Get Down To 53

The Saints are down to 53. The team announced the following moves:

Released

Waived

Placed on Reserve/PUP list

Placed on Reserve/Suspended list

We had previously heard about a number of these transactions, which you can find here (including full stories on Thomas, Siemian, and Freeman).

Among the notable additions to the list of cut players is veteran wideout Chris Hogan, who delayed a professional lacrosse career to return to the NFL. The two-time Super Bowl champ signed with the Saints back in July. Kevin White is another notable name to earn his walking papers. The former seventh-overall pick has been unable to hold a steady gig since leaving the Bears in 2019. He got into three games for New Orleans last season but mostly appeared on special teams.

Giants To Activate RJ McIntosh

The Giants are activating defensive end R.J. McIntosh from the non-football injury list, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). The Giants will have to drop someone from the roster to welcome McIntosh back, but he’ll provide front seven help for a team that can certainly use some. 

When McIntosh was placed on the NFI list in early September, the Giants had playoff aspirations. But, in November, the Giants aren’t playing for much. The G-Men are 1-7 after losing to the rival Redskins in Week 8 and even running the table would not guarantee them a place in the postseason.

McIntosh, a Miami product, was a fifth-round pick of the Giants in the spring, but was unable to partake in practice for much of the offseason. The exact nature of his medical issue is unclear, but it is believed that it is related to an thyroid problem. Whatever the issue was, it appears to be under control.

As a junior at Miami, McIntosh tallied 52 total tackles, including 12.5 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks. He’s unlikely to see significant playing time right away, but he’ll have an opportunity to play his way onto the 2019 team in the second half of this season.

Giants Lock In 53-Man Roster

The Giants will head into the 2018 season without one of their longest-tenured players and one of their 2017 starting safeties, with both Mark Herzlich and Darian Thompson failing to make the team.

A 2017 fifth-round pick, edge defender Avery Moss missed out as well. As did Roger Lewis, a wideout who became needed when the Giants became decimated at receiver last season.

The Giants also released recently signed cornerback Leonard Johnson, who was trying to make a fifth NFL franchise’s 53-man roster. The former Buccaneer, Patriot, Panther and Bill started seven games with Buffalo last season.

Here’s the full list of Giants cuts:
