Giants Cut DBs Duke Ihenacho & Mykkele Thompson From I.R. With Settlements


The New York Giants officially cut DB Duke Ihenacho and DB Mykkele Thompson from injured reserve with injury settlements.

Ihenacho, 28, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent back in 2012. He bounced on and off Denver’s practice squad before signing a one-year exclusive rights contract in 2014. He was, unfortunately, waived by the Broncos but was quickly claimed by the Redskins.

He finished a one-year deal with the Redskins before re-signing to a low-round tendered offer as a restricted free agent back in March of last year. The Giants signed him to a contract this past May but recently placed him on injured reserve.

In 2016, Ihenacho appeared in 15 games for Washington and recorded 66 total tackles and two pass defenses.
