Giants Temporarily Release, Re-Sign TE Scott Simonson


According to Field Yates, the Giants released veteran TE Scott Simonson on Wednesday.

However, the Giants re-signed Simonson shortly afterward according to Art Stapleton. Pat Leonard says the Giants called Simonson’s release a book-keeping matter and he’ll remain on the team.

Simonson re-signed with the Giants this past offseason on a one-year deal. 

Simonson, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Assumption College back in 2014. He was unable to make Oakland’s final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but later signed on to the team’s practice squad.

The Raiders elected to place him on waivers the following year and he later caught on with the Panthers. Simonson was on and off of Carolina’s roster over the past few years but the team, unfortunately, declined to tender him a restricted offer in 2018. 

Simonson signed on with the Giants in for the 2018 season. 

In 2018, Simonson appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and caught nine passes for 86 yards and a touchdown.
