The arrival of Andre Williams in the 2014 draft helped squeeze 2013 seventh-round pick Michael Cox off of the Giants’ 53-man roster, but Cox won’t be far away should the Giants decide they want him back on Sundays this fall.
Cox was one of seven players added to the team’s practice squad. Cox played in 14 games last season, running 22 times for 43 yards while also averaging 21.8 yards on 20 kickoff returns.
Cox won’t be the only member of the practice squad with regular season experience. The Giants also signed tackle Nick Becton, who played one game with the Chargers and was waived by them over the weekend.
2014 sixth-round cornerback Bennett Jackson, linebacker Dan Fox, defensive end Jordan Stanton, cornerback Chandler Fenner and wide receiver Julian Talley all return after being part of the cut to 53 players.
