The New York Giants were given a free roster spot after placing Matt Gono on the exempt/left squad list on August 3. The list is used for players contemplating retirement and can open up a roster spot to be used without cutting the player.

According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Giants claimed safety Nate Meadors off of waivers from the Cleveland Browns.

New York lost rookie safety Dane Belton to injury, as he suffered a broken collarbone on Monday, which left the team needing depth at the position.

The Giants safety room consists of Xavier McKinney, Julian Love, Andrew Adams, Trenton Thompson, Gavis Heslop and Jarrod Wilson.

Meadors’ Career

During his four-year college career at UCLA, Meadors posted 149 tackles, 22 passes broken up, and three interceptions in 42 games (30 starts).

Meadors signed on with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He appeared in three games and recorded two tackles and no interceptions. He mostly played on special teams with the Vikings, seeing action on 11 defensive snaps and 37 on special teams.

He’s latched on to practice squads with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles and Browns, but he hasn’t played a game since the 2020 season with the Vikings.

The 25-year-old was with the Jaguars and Eagles in 2021 and was placed on injured reserve by Philadelphia last August with a hamstring injury. The Browns then added him to their practice squad on Nov. 9.

Standing at 5-foot-11 and 194 pounds, Meadors is bringing depth to the safety position.

Giants Tryouts

New York worked out veteran tackle Will Holden, who played in 14 games with one start with Lions last year. Offensive linemen Mitch Hyatt and Kyle Murphy were also part of the workout.

The Giants have starting offensive tackles for the present and future in Andrew Thomas and Evan Neal.

However, the depth at tackle took a hit with the Giants adding Gono to the exempt/left squad list.

Rookie third-round pick Joshua Ezeudu will be the option to come in if Neal or Thomas go down. He’s been working at both tackle positions during training camp. The rest of the tackle depth consists of Matt Peart (currently on Physically Unable to Perform List), Devery Hamilton, Marcus McKethan and Roy Mbaeteka.

Not great.

So the Giants have scoured the free agent market. But with not many quality options available in free agency, the Giants could take a look at the trade market for any available swing tackles.

Shooting during ball game at Atlanta park leaves 1 dead and 5 wounded, including 6-year-old

(CNN)A shooting during a ballgame at an Atlanta park Sunday left one man dead and five people wounded, including a 6-year-old who was in critical condition, Atlanta police said.

The violence began during a baseball or softball game at Dunbar Recreational Center inside Rosa L. Burney Park in southwest Atlanta around 7 p.m. Sunday, Deputy Chief Charles Hampton said. The game was interrupted by an argument that escalated to an exchange of gunfire, and six people were shot, he said.A man in his 30s was shot and killed, while a 6-year-old was struck and transported to Children's Egleston Hospital in critical condition, Hampton said. The other four victims were in stable condition, he said.Police are still investigating what happened and what relationship, if any, the six victims had to each other, Hampton said."As we've said countless times, we're just asking the citizens just to find a way to resolve conflict without weapons. We're just asking people to step away, we're asking people just to let bygones be bygones," Hampton said.Read More"Any time that we have any tragedy like this -- any death is a tragedy -- then as we have kids that are also involved ... This is not a place for gunplay. So, we're just asking everyone to leave the guns at home."The shooting represents the 18th mass shooting in Georgia this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which defines a mass shooting as any incident in which four or more people are shot, excluding the gunman.As of July 30, there have been 88 homicides in Atlanta this year, a 9% increase from the same point last year, according to Atlanta Police data. Aggravated assaults, a category that includes non-fatal shootings, are also up 4% this year compared to this point last year, the data shows.
