The New York Giants made several roster changes early this week, headlined by the signing of veteran safety Andrew Adams.

The team signed four players and cut four players ahead of training camp, looking to inject some more competition at specific positions.

New York Giants signed:

S Andrew Adams



Adams spent the first two years of his career with the Giants in 2016 and 2017. He spent the last four years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, winning a Super Bowl. He made 14 appearances last year, totaling 24 combined tackles and four passes defended.

DE Nick Williams

Williams is a 6’4″, 310-pound interior defender. He spent the last two years with the Detroit Lions, playing in 17 games last season at 31 years old. Williams recorded 27 combined tackles with four tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits.

WR Marcus Kemp

The Giants also signed wide receiver Marcus Kemp, who has experience with Mike Kafka during his time in Kansas City. Kemp made 16 appearances last year for the Chiefs at 26 years old, recording 24 yards receiving. He will be a competitor on special teams, at the very least.

OT Kamaal Seymour

Kamaal Seymour has no NFL experience but is a New York native at 26 years old. He was placed on the non-football injury list last year after spending time with the Las Vegas raiders. The Giants recently cut Korey Cunningham from a reserve tackle spot, so Seymour will have an opportunity to battle.

New York Giants cut:

DB Henry Black

DT Jabari Ellis

WR Travis Toivonen

DB Maurice Canady

The Giants cut several veteran players that would’ve acted as depth. Canady is the most interesting given how thin the Giants are at cornerback behind Adoree Jackson.

Big Blue is set to start training camp on Wednesday and we’ll have a few new players in the mix, but there are plenty of opportunities to land roster spots.
