Manage In a corresponding move to make roster space for Linebacker Curtis Grant , who was promoted from the practice squad before Monday Night's game, the Giants have waived King.
If King is claimed, the Giants will likely promote impressive rookie wide receiver Travis Rudolph to the active roster next week when B.J.
Goodson returns and linebacker Curtis Grant gets sent back down to the practice squad.
Although King played a bit of the hero role down the stretch in the 2016 season (and postseason), he had been passed on the depth chart by Roger Lewis to start the 2017 season.
If Odell Beckham Jr. cannot suit up on Monday, Lewis will once again draw the start.
