Tanney, 32, originally signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth back in 2012. Since then, he’s had brief stints with the Cowboys, Browns, Buccaneers, Titans, Bills and Colts before being signed to the Titans’ active roster at end of the 2015 season.
Tanney spent time on the Titans’ practice squad before eventually being called up. However, the Titans elected to cut him loose in 2018 and he later signed on with the Giants in May. Tanney re-signed in New York last offseason and exercised his 2020 option in March.
New York placed him on their non-football injury list back in July.
In 2019, Tanney appeared in one game for the Giants and recorded one completion on one pass attempt for a yard.
