Halapio, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2014. He spent just a few months in New England before he was waived at the start of the 2014 regular season.
He had brief stints with the Broncos and Cardinals before returning to the Patriots in 2016. The Giants later signed him to their practice squad and he was on and off of their active roster before winning the starting center job in 2018. Unfortunately, he broke his ankle and went on injured reserve.
Halapio re-signed with New York as an exclusive rights free agent in 2019. However, the Giants declined to tender Halapio as a restricted free agent this past offseason.
After missing just one game as the Giants’ starting center in 2019, Halapio underwent surgery to repair his torn Achilles at the end of the season. He re-signed with the Giants in September of 2020 but was released just a few days later.
In 2019, Halapio started 15 games for the Giants at center. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 31 center out of 34 qualifying players.
Fumagalli, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2018. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2.7 million contract with Denver when he was placed on injured reserve.
The Broncos opted to waive Fumagalli from injured reserve with an injury settlement back in September. He had a brief stint on the Texans’ practice squad.
In 2019, Fumagalli appeared in 11 games for the Broncos and caught six passes for 38 yards receiving and one touchdown.
