The New York Giants completed their personnel shuffle on Thursday, signing wide receiver Dan DePalma to their practice squad following news that David Douglas had been signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 53-man roster.
DePalma, who went undrafted out of West Chester in 2011, spent time on the Giants' practice squad a year ago and performed well in training camp this season. Like Douglas, DePalma had made some noise in camp and was in consideration for the 53-man roster. To better his odds, DePalma also volunteered to play in the defensive backfield, which the coaches briefly experimented with. In the end, however, DePalma was released and had remained a free agent until Thursday.
During the preseason, DePalma hauled in three passes for 46 yards. He also returned one punt for four yards, and made a solo special teams tackle.
