New York Giants Sign Former Cowboys Wide Receiver

A solid pickup for the New York Giants.

The Giants have signed wide receiver James Washington to their practice squad.

After joining the Cowboys on a one-year deal last March, Washington appeared poised to be one of the team's top-three receivers while Michael Gallup worked back from an ACL tear. Unfortunately, Washington suffered a fractured right foot early in training camp which has limited him to just two games this season.

Washington was cleared to return in Week 14, but he ended up playing just 14 snaps between his first two games with Dallas before being benched the past two. With the addition of T.Y. Hilton, the team had no use for Washington anymore.

Given the poor state of the Giants' receiving corps, it would not at all be surprising to see the team elevate Washington ahead of Sunday's wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings.

In 15 games last season, the twenty-six-year-old made 24 receptions for 285 yards and two touchdowns with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is a former second-round pick by the Steelers in the 2018 NFL Draft.
