The New York Giants have spent a substantial amount of time in recent years re-working their secondary, which has included additions to both the top and bottom of the depth chart.

They continued that work this past week by claiming defensive back Shakial Taylor off of waivers from the Denver Broncos, but it didn’t end there.

Although he ultimately ended up in Washington, the Giants also put a claim in for cornerback Ryan Lewis, who was waived by the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.

Lewis broke into the league with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft. He later spent time with Joe Judge in New England before moving onto the Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles and the aforementioned Dolphins.

Over his three-year NFL career, Lewis has appeared in 20 games with six starts, recording 43 tackles, two forced fumbles, eight passes defensed and one interception.

Lewis would have been a familiar face for defensive coordinator Patrick Graham, but instead, the young cornerback will now play the Giants twice per season (should Lewis stick in Washington).
