New York Giants Claim Former Baltimore Ravens Offensive Lineman

The New York Giants have added some valuable depth to their offensive line. The team announced Thursday night it had successfully claimed offensive lineman Tyre Phillips off waivers:
Phillips was recently a surprise cut by the Baltimore Ravens. He had started 13 games for the team across the past two seasons since being drafted in 2020. The fact that he didn't sneak through waivers speaks to his standing in the league. The team released linebacker Blake Martinez in a corresponding move.

Weighing in at a gargantuan 6-5 and 344 pounds, Phillips joined the league out of Mississippi State with a reputation as a dominant run blocker. The Ravens led the league in rushing during his rookie year and were third last year despite Lamar Jackson missing five games. By adding Phillips, the Giants are likely hoping they can replicate some of that success on the ground. That's good news for not only Giants running back Saquon Barkley, but quarterback Daniel Jones. Jones is an underrated rushing threat, running for 1000 yards and an impressive 5.8 yards per attempt so far in his career.
