The New York Giants continue their roster evaluation ahead of the new league year, and for cornerback Antonio Hamilton, that has led to some bad news.

Pro Football Talk reports that the Giants will not tender Hamilton, who was scheduled to become a restricted free agent (RFA).

An undrafted free agent out of South Carolina State in 2016, Hamilton played sparingly for the Oakland Raiders as a rookie. He spent eight weeks on short-term injured reserve (IR) in 2017 with a knee injury before being claimed off of waivers by the Giants in September 2018.

In 13 games for the Giants last season, Hamilton, who played primarily on special teams, recorded six tackles (five solo) before landing on season-ending injured reserve (IR).

With Hamilton now hitting the open market free and clear, the Giants become even thinner at the cornerback position. But perhaps more importantly, they lose a gunner who played a pivotal role in helping turn the special teams unit around.
