The New York Giants waived wide receiver Da'Mari Scott on Wednesday. As it turns out, Scott was perfectly happy by the development.

According to Jordan Raanan of, Scott requested his release from the Giants so he could seek out other opportunities.

Scott caught two passes for 47 yards in his two preseason appearances for the Giants. He had appeared on 40 out of 136 offensive snaps in the team’s games against the Chicago Bears and New York Jets.

Even with Golden Tate set to serve a suspension to start the year and Sterling Shepard recovering from a broken thumb, Scott may not have seen a favorable place for him developing in the team’s receiving corps.

The Giants claimed Scott off waivers from the Buffalo Bills in July. Scott appeared in three games for Buffalo last season after initially signing with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State.

    What am I missing here? The Giants are the most WR needy team in the NFL. What magical place has more opportunity?
    Bold strategy, I'm guessing that New York is too expensive and that he wants to catch passes from someone that can actually spin a football decently.

  2. What?! LOL….He does realize that he’s Da’Mari Scott and not AB, ha. Next stop a career in the CFL, congrats!! Request to be released from an NFL opportunity to make a team with two preseason games left, lol. Apparently the kid isn’t much of a competitor, lol
