The New York Giants announced Monday that they’ve promoted LB Curtis Grant to their active roster and waived WR Tavarres King.
- Jordan Raanan of ESPN first reported that the Giants were set to promote Grant to their active roster in time for Monday night’s game against the Lions.
Raanan adds that this move doesn’t bode well for starting LB B.J. Goodson, who is dealing with a leg injury.
Grant, 24, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State back in 2015. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason and bounced around a bit with the Falcons, Titans, and Raiders before catching on with the 49ers last September.
The Giants would later sign him off of the 49ers’ practice squad and bring him back on a future/reserve contract this past January. However, he was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to the team’s practice squad.
During his four years at Ohio State, Grant recorded 132 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries, and three pass defenses.
