Giants Release OT Byron Stingily From Injured Reserve, Promote RB Michael Hunter

The New York Giants officially released OT Byron Stingily from injured reserve on Wednesday and promoted RB Michael Hunter to their active roster.

Stingily, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He played out his four-year, $2,150,500 rookie contract with the Titans before signing a two-year deal with the team back in March.

However, Stingily was among their final roster cuts. The Steelers later signed him to a contract in October, but he never appeared in a game during the 2015 season.

Titans released him at the start of the 2015 season and later caught on with the Steelers. The Giants elected to sign him to a contract back in April before later placing him on injured reserve.

In 2014, Stingily appeared in 10 games for the Titans.

Hunter, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in May. He stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

The Giants unfortunately waived Hunter coming out of the preseason before later signing him to their practice squad.

During his college career, Hunter recorded 98 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, four interceptions, a forced fumble and 12 pass defenses.
