The Giants confirmed the news and announced the release of WR Johnny Holton from the unit. 

Here’s the Giants updated practice squad:

  1. DE Niko Lalos
  2. T Kyle Murphy
  3. RB Sandro Platzgummer
  4. P Ryan Santoso
  5. LS Carson Tinker
  6. WR Binjimen Victor
  7. DB Jarren Williams

  11. C Javon Patterson
  12. RB Alfred Morris
  13. QB Clayton Thorson
  14. TE Eric Tomlinson
  15. DT David Moa 
  16. WR Alex Bachman

Moa, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Boise State back in April. He later signed a three-year, $2.28 million contract with the Vikings.

He was released by the Vikings and caught on with the Falcons practice squad, but was unfortunately released once again. Moa was scheduled to workout with the Broncos on Friday but elected to cancel in order to accept the Giants offer.

During his five seasons at Boise State, Moa recorded 93 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, and 12.5 sacks.

Bachman, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Wake Forest back in April. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Rams.

However, Los Angeles waived Bachman with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. He was later released with a settlement. 

Bachman had worked out with the Giants back in November.

During his four-year college career at Wake Forest, Bachman caught 83 passes for 1,162 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns over the course of 32 games.

Holton, 29, wound up signing on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati back in 2016. He managed to make the 53-man roster each of his first two years with the Raiders, but was cut loose at the start of the 2018 season and later signed to their practice squad.

From there, Holton had a brief stint with the Eagles before catching on with the Steelers last year. The Giants signed him to a contract before adding him to their practice squad. 

In 2019, Holton appeared in all 16 games for the Steelers and caught three passes for 21 yards on 15 targets. He also rushed once for nine yards.
