On Monday, the New York Giants announced that they have waived backup defensive end Adewale Ojomo and he will likely be placed back on the practice squad if he clears waivers this week.
With Jason Pierre-Paul feeling fine from the off-season back surgery and playing in Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys and also rookie Damontre Moore likely to see his rookie debut against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 following a shoulder injury that kept him out for a month, the Giants won't have a need for another defensive end in their rotation, which already includes Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka and Justin Trattou; all of which were active in Sunday's game whereas Ojomo was not.
Plus, throw in the fact that the Giants will have in running backs like Brandon Jacobs and Willis McGahee for workouts on Tuesday to add depth to a running back situation that was down right terrible against the Cowboys with David Wilson fumbling twice and struggling to block out of the back field and Da'Rel Scott tipping a ball into the air that lead to the game-winning interception for Dallas and won the game 36-31.
Ojomo was promoted from the practice squad just last week after Andre Brown was put on temporary injured reserve, but even though he was on the active roster, never got to play in Week 1 and with the needed roster spot, Ojomo's tenure on the active roster was short lived.
