Dan Duggan of NJ.com reports that the Giants also put a waiver claim in for OT Zach Banner, but ultimately lost out to the Browns, who had the higher waivers priority.
It appears as though the Giants are still on the look out for offensive help, even after cutting down their roster to 53 players this past weekend.
Banner was a surprising cut by the Colts, given that he was a top 150 pick a few months ago.
Banner, 23, was taken in the fourth-round of this year’s draft by the Colts. He’s currently in the first year of his four-year, $2.94 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the next two years of the agreement.
The Colts claimed him off of waivers on Monday.
During his college career at USC, Banner started 38 games with most of them coming at right tackle. He was a first-team All-Pac 12 as a junior and senior.
