Want to thank the NYG for signing me to their Psquad today. It was always my dream to put on the blue helmet. Ready to work.

The Giants’ practice squad currently consists of:
- LB Glenn Carson
- WR Julian Talley
- CB Leon McFadden
- T Jake Rodgers
- C Shane McDermott
- DT Louis Nix
- LB Nico Johnson
- WR Tavarres King
- QB G.J. Kinne
The fact that the Giants signed him to their practice squad before their season finale could be an indication that they plan to offer him a future/reserve contract in the coming weeks.
Carson, 25, originally signed on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in May of last year. He managed to make the 53-man roster in his first year in the NFL, but was cut at the start of this season.
In 2014, Carson appeared in five games and recorded 11 tackles for the Cardinals.
