The New York Giants made several roster moves Tuesday.
The team announced the signings of wide receiver Hunter Sharp and offensive lineman Damien Mama to the active roster. Tight end Ryan O’Malley and defensive back Tim Scott were signed to the practice squad.
Sharp, a 2016 undrafted free agent out of Utah State, initially signed with the Philadelphia Eagles but was released during training camp. Sharp then signed with the Denver Broncos. He has primarily been a practice squad player with only one appearance in a regular season game. Sharp was active for the Broncos’ Week 7 21-0 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers but didn’t record a reception.
Mama is a 2017 undrafted free agent who played collegiately at USC. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs but was waived during the final preseason cuts. Mama signed to the Chiefs practice squad but hasn’t appeared in an NFL game. Mama, who is 6-foot-3, 342 pounds, decided to turn pro after his junior year. He was a Second-team All-Pac 12 selection in his final college season as part of an offensive line that allowed just 12 sacks in 13 games.
