Giants sign Dallas Reynolds, cut Da’Rel Scott

Michael Vick, Dallas Reynolds AP

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.

    This is a huge signing. Dont know who the guy is but at this point , they could sign the Chinese delivery guy and it would be an upgrade to the team.

    So they cut their best RB.

    He shouldn’t be their best RB but he is.

    I will root on, ’till the day I die and all that but ‘In Reese we trust’ is BS. Better stop with the head scratching picks, they are biting us all in the butt right about now…

    You are nuts if you thing that Da’Rel Scott was our best RB!

    David Wilson is the guy and he should be taking the bulk of the snaps. He is dynamic and can break a big play any time. The fumbling will not be an issue, just give the kid the ball!

    Cut Snee next….and start giving serious thought to doing the same with tuck, kiwi, and Webster; we are losing with them, we can just as easily lose without them. Cutting Scott is like putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound. Time for the heartless Reese who waived o’hara and seubert a few years back to show up again.

    A little surprised. Scott seemed like a good COP back (That’s change of pace, not Citizens on Patrol).

    tommy

    How in the name of all that is good is Scott their best Rb???? the guy is a BUM. The only reason he was on this team to begin with was brown going down in the pre-season.

  7. Jason says: Oct 1, 2013 4:45 PM

    How does Aaron Ross still have a job? He’s worse than the Bills’ Justin Rodgers….

    Da’Rel wasn’t da real deal.

  9. justintuckrule says: Oct 1, 2013 4:48 PM

    Bout time. Da’Rel Scott was terrible. He was barely better than DJ Danny Ware and that isn’t saying much.

  10. nickbrezzy says: Oct 1, 2013 4:50 PM

    Aww scott was Playing the best out of all there rbs this year for real. I hope he gets picked back up he played well these last couple games. That being said I did just get wilson so I hope he gets way more touches now lol

    It’s amazing how right I was in preseason.

    I kept saying my Giants were finished, Eli era over, time to compete for the first pick in the draft.

    Tuck, Snee, Nicks, JPP, Hynoski, Kiwanuka, Bass. I said all their careers were done and I’m sorry to say now I was right.

    Maybe the Giants can rebuild. I sure hope they do.

    The Eli era isn’t over, and Nicks and JPP may both still be fine. If the Giants do whats right and cut away all of the dead wood, they can clear about 25-30 mill in cap space for next year. Couple that with a top 5 draft position and a last place schedule, and the Giants can be an 11 win team next season. This is the NFL….a league where worst-to-first happens basically every year.

    I can’t see this Giants team doing a 180 like years past. Their offensive line is terrible (albeit injured) and their skill players are underachieving. Their defensive line is banged up and they have no linebackers to compensate for it. They’re screwed.

  14. nonetruerthanblue says: Oct 1, 2013 5:32 PM

    Did that guy really say that Scott was Blue’s best RB? You honestly can’t be serious. Have you seen his turnovers? Have you seen his play? He looks lost on the field.

  15. hrmlss says: Oct 1, 2013 5:37 PM

    New York still has a professional football team?

    Lets face it Reese is a bum for a GM. He keeps trying to bring in old washed up vets and flash in the pan free agents and sign them to one year deals.

    Rogers, Patterson, Myers, Rivers, Mundy all suck.

    The Giants rode Ernie Accorsi built teams to two Super Bowls. Since Reese took over as GM in 2007 (the year we won the 1st SB and Accorsis last year) our drafts have been awful. The 2011 Super Bowl team was hold overs from the Accorsi era.

    The past 3 drafts the Giants are only getting contributions from a handful of players. Prince, Pugh (only because Diehl is out) Randle and Wilson. Reese has done a terrible job in the draft and free agency.

    The other issue is with Couglin he doesn’t want to let young kids play. We drafted Moore, Hankins and Taylor. Put in and let them play. See what they can do. Moore and Hankins can’t be any worse the DL we have now.

    Also, Eli needs to do what Tom Brady did and take a serious paycut and rework is contract to free up more cap space.

    If Reese is smart enough to do this we could rebuild/retool next year and be back in the playoffs.

    ———————-
    There’s really no such thing as a last-place schedule any more. Only 2 of the 16 games are affected by the position you finished the season before – hardly enough to affect the overall outcome. You always play 6 division games, 4 games against a rotating division in your conference, and 4 games against a rotating division in the other conference. The other two games are of the teams in the remaining two divisions of your conference that finished in the same position you did.

    I agree with most of the rest, but the worst-to-first runs are a result of two things: getting a key player or two, and overcoming just the three other teams in your division.

    you are correct…the last place schedule is definitely not worth much. And my whole argument is basically predicated on exactly what you said in your last sentence. Only, the Giants need about 5-6 new players, not just one or two. The cap room plus the high draft should allow for that. If the Giants only had an o-line right now they probably wouldn’t be any worse than 2-2.

    RANT ON

    so we cut scott, who took over david wilson for 2 fumbles even though scott cost us the same game wilson fumbled it by fumbling

    DONT CUT KILLDRIVE for some ungodly reason

    tuck will go, webster will go, ross will go(even though hes actually playing decent so far)

    hate to sya it but if he dont right hte ship coughlin might go even tho id hate the giants to fire him he just really needs to retire.

    seems like every year theres stretches play uninspired ball that has tobe 10 years of hearing coughlin screaming at you all day just draining

    I agree with some of your comments regarding reese, but you are off-base on others. The d-line, while not getting pressure, I agree, is not the problem here. The D as a WHOLE is really not the problem here. The problem is that our D, by the time the 3rd quarter is halfway done, is totally exhausted. Look at the last 3 games….they all played out exactly the same. This is ALL on the offense (although some defensive vets do need to be shown the door after this season).

    The meeting went something along the lines of “cough choke cough cough hack choke choke hack cough cough choke” ok meeting over.

    oops clicked the wrong article for the above comment.

    man that’s pretty funny. Andy kept Dallas Reynolds on the practice squad for 3 years, then when he was out of PS eligibility gave him the last OL roster spot as the backup center. Andy also signed his brother to the PS. He loves his BYU co-religionists. He did not play well, and didn’t make the team this year. But this is what it’s come to for the Giants this year….shocking.

    Scott is simply a scapegoat. Statistically he has out performed Wilson. He is actually faster, and did more with fewer touches. If you saw him play for the Terps, you understand what he is capable of doing when in a system that uses his skill set properly. G-men should have used him like Philly use to use Westbrook. It would put him in space to use his speed and take some of the awful pressure off Eli. Hope he lands somewhere else.
