Giants Promoting WR Kalif Raymond, Signing TE Matt LaCosse To Practice Squad


According to Ralph Vacchiano, the Giants are promoting WR Kalif Raymond to their active roster on Tuesday.

  • Dan Duggan reports that WR/KR Ed Eagan is being released.
  • Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports that the Giants are re-signing TE Matt LaCosse to their practice squad after he officially passed through waivers unclaimed on Monday.

The Giants’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. OL Adam Bisnowaty
  2. WR Marquis Bundy
  3. S Ryan Murphy
  4. WR Darius Powe
  5. G Ethan Cooper
  6. DB Brandon Dixon
  7. LB Trevor Bates
  8. DE Jordan Williams
  9. TE Matt LaCosse

Raymond, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Holy Cross back in May of last year. He was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason but the Broncos later signed him to their practice squad.

Denver once again cut Raymond loose at the start of the regular season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Jets. After a brief stint on the Jets’ practice squad, the Giants signed him to their taxi squad.

In 2016, Raymond was active in four games for the Broncos and recorded 137 yards as a kick returner and 111 yards as a punt returner, while also losing one fumble.

LaCosse, 25, wound up signing on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois back in 2015. He was waived during the preseason and later had a brief stint with the Jets before returning to the Giants during the 2015 season.

LaCosse spent the 2016 season on injured reserve but was brought back on an exclusive rights contract this past February. New York waived LaCosse this past weekend.

In 2017, LaCosse appeared in three games for the Giants but did not record a single statistic.
