The New York Giants did some minor roster shuffling on Tuesday, waiving defensive back Steven Parker.

Parker, who had been signed to practice squad in late September, was added to the 53-man roster ahead of a Week 8 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He made his Giants’ debut on Monday night and saw 12 special teams snaps.

An undrafted rookie in 2018, Parker had spent time with the Los Angeles Rams (2018), Miami Dolphins (2019), Minnesota Vikings (2020) and Dallas Cowboys (2020). During his time in Miami, Parker played under current Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.

In addition to waiving Parker, the Giants also terminated the practice squad contract of wide receiver Travis Toivonen, who had been added in late October.

With an extra spot open on their 53-man roster, do not be surprised to see rookie edge rusher Elerson Smith activated from the physically unable to perform list.

Finally, the Giants have re-signed wide receiver Alex Bachman to their practice squad.
