New York Giants Release Safety After Brief Stint With Team

The New York Giants made the decision to waive defensive back Terrell Burgess from their roster.

Burgess, who had joined the team earlier in the year on a reserve/futures deal, unfortunately found himself released due to limited space on the 90-man roster.

Additionally, his departure was accompanied by a failed physical designation, indicating potential health concerns.

Burgess, originally drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, had contributed to the Rams' Super Bowl victory before being released in November.

He subsequently signed with the Giants' practice squad and later received a promotion to the active roster, although his playing time was limited to just five special teams snaps.

With the waiving of Burgess, the Giants' roster now stands at 89 players. This move allows the team to potentially sign tryout players at the conclusion of their rookie minicamp, as they currently have 73 participants, including 53 veteran and undrafted rookie tryout players.

The available roster spot provides an opportunity for the Giants to evaluate and potentially add new talent to their team as they prepare for the upcoming season. Photo Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
