The Giants offensive line is being held together with duct tape because of injuries and they added a little more in the form of a former member of the Eagles on Tuesday.
The team announced that they have signed Dallas Reynolds and released running back Da’Rel Scott. Reynolds joined the Eagles in 2009 as an undrafted free agent and remained with the team until he was cut this summer.
Reynolds spent most of that time on the practice squad, but wound up playing all 16 games and starting 14 times at center in place of the injured Jason Kelce. He didn’t make a particularly positive impression during that playing time, but the Giants needed some healthy bodies on the interior with guard Chris Snee possibly needing season-ending hip surgery and center David Baas ailing.
Scott was a seventh-round pick in 2011 and has played 19 games for the Giants over the last three years. He saw his most playing time this season in the wake of the loss of Andre Brown and ran 16 times for 56 yards while adding 10 catches for 98 yards and a touchdown. Scott played almost half the game for the Giants in Week Four and his departure leaves them with Brandon Jacobs and Michael Cox behind David Wilson.
