The New York Giants announced several roster moves on Saturday ahead of their Week 16 game.
The full list includes:
- Giants activated LB Cam Brown, DB Aaron Robinson and DB Natrell Jamerson from the COVID-19 list.
- Giants elevated DB Darqueze Dennard, DT David Moa, WR David Stills and OT Isaiah Wilson to their active roster.
- Giants placed DT Danny Shelton and OT Nate Solder on the COVID-19 list.
- Giants released LB Omari Cobb from their practice squad.
Shelton, 28, is a former first-round pick out of Washington by the Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Patriots acquired Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Browns in exchange for a third-round pick in 2018.
New England declined his fifth-year option and Shelton played out the final year of his four-year $11.703 million rookie contract that included a $6.771 million signing bonus. The Patriots ultimately ended up bringing him back on a one-year deal for 2019.
Shelton signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Lions in 2020 but was released after just one season. He then signed a one-year deal with the Giants back in March.
In 2021, Shelton appeared in 10 games for the Giants and recorded 29 tackles and half of a sack.
We will have more news on Shelton and Solder as it becomes available.
