The New York Giants announced Wednesday that they’ve signed DB Darqueze Dennard to their practice squad and elevated WR Pharoh Cooper to their active roster.
The Giants also signed DB Dwayne Johnson to their practices squad.
Dennard, 30, was taken with the No. 24 overall pick by the Bengals back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $7.978 million contract before the Bengals picked up his fifth-year option for the 2018 season.
Dennard made $8,526,000 million in 2018 before returning to the Bengals on a one-year, $4.5 million contract in 2019. After a deal with the Jaguars fell through, Dennard signed a one-year deal with the Falcons for 2020.
The Cardinals signed Dennard to a contract in June before releasing him early into the 2021 season. He signed on to the Colts practice squad in October but was just recently released.
In 2020, Dennard appeared in eight games for the Falcons and recorded 36 total tackles, one interception and five pass defenses.
