Giants reportedly re-sign cornerback Tony Lippett

The Giants have re-signed cornerback Tony Lippett to a one-year deal, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (Twitter link).

Lippett, who transformed from a collegiate wideout to an NFL cornerback, was a 13-game starter for the Dolphins in 2016, but didn’t make it through final cut-downs in 2018 after missing the previous season with a torn Achilles. He worked out for a number of teams last season, and ultimately landed with the Giants in October. Although he appeared in five games, Lippett saw only 12 snaps on defense.

Lippett could potentially be in for more work in 2019 since the Giants don’t have much at cornerback behind Janoris Jenkins, especially now that B.W. Webb departed via free agency. 

Still only 26 years old, Lippett will fight with Sam Beal, Antonio Hamilton, and others for playing time.
