Omameh, 28, originally signed on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan back in 2013. He lasted just a few months in San Francisco before he was cut and later signed to the Buccaneers’ active roster a few months into the 2013 season.
After a few seasons with the Buccaneers, Omameh was claimed off of waivers by the Bears at the start of the 2015 season. Jacksonville later signed him to a contract in 2016 and brought him back on another one-year deal last season.
He signed a three-year, $15 million contract that included $5.5 million guaranteed with the Giants over the offseason, making his stint in New York short-lived.
Omameh was set to earn a base salary of $900,000 this season. According to Duggan, New York creates $3 million in cap space and another $3 million in dead money by releasing him.
In 2018, Omameh has appeared in seven games for the Giants and is rated by ProFootballFocus as the No. 61 overall guard out of 75 qualifying players.
