The New York Giants officially signed DB Brandon Dixon to their practice squad on Thursday.
The Giants’ practice squad now consists of:

- DE Jordan Williams
- WR Marquis Bundy
- CB Tim Scott
- S Ryan Murphy
- FB Shane Smith
- WR Darius Powe
- G Ethan Cooper

Dixon, 27, is a former sixth-round draft pick by the Jets in 2014. He lasted just a few months in New York before he was waived coming out of the preseason.
Since then, Dixon has played for several teams including the Buccaneers, Seahawks, Colts, Patriots, Saints and most recently for the Steelers.
Pittsburgh signed Dixon to their practice squad at the end of last year and brought him back on a future/reserve contract. However, he was waived at the start of the regular season.
In 2014, Dixon appeared in 14 games in a reserve role in Tampa Bay and totaled nine tackles, one interception, and two pass defenses.
