Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , Basile waived; RB Pressley, LB Long added [UPDATED 4:30 p.m.] The Giants also made a second pair of moves on Monday. The waived safety Mike Basile, a rookie undrafted free agent just signed two weeks ago, and added linebacker Warren Long.Long, 5-foot-11 and 212 pounds, joined the Seattle Seahawks on May 4 as an undrafted rookie from Northwestern. He was waived on Aug. 11. Long had two solo tackles in Seattle’s preseason opener vs. Indianapolis. Long was a running back his first three seasons (2013-15) at Northwestern. He was injured on his first carry in 2016, and missed the rest of the season. The following offseason, he became a linebacker. Playing primarily as a backup and special teamer Color Rush Alec Ogletree Jersey , Long had 21 tackles (14 solo), three tackles for losses and 1.0 sack.The New York Giants have reportedly waived linebacker Thurston Armbrister with an injury designation. Armbrister has been dealing with a hamstring injury since early in training camp and hasn’t practiced since the beginning of August. With small injuries piling up elsewhere on the roster, the team couldn’t afford to wait any longer for Armbrister to get back on the field. After waiving Armbrister, the team immediately put the open roster spot to use, signing running back Jhurell Pressley. Pressley was originally signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2016, and has bounced around the league since. He has spent time on the Vikings, Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , and Jacksonville Jaguars since coming in to the league. Pressley was regarded as a productive and athletic “change of pace” running back coming out of college, with remarkable speed and quickness. Pressley recorded 1,990 yards (7.85 yards per carry) and 23 touchdowns over his last two seasons at New Mexico, and was timed at 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 6.92 in the 3-cone drill and 4.06 in the short shuttle at New Mexico’s pro day. The Giants are short on running backs with Saquon Barkley nursing a strained hamstring and Jalen Simmons in the concussion protocol. The team used receiver Kalif Raymond as a running back in practice Sunday afternoon, so adding a running back isn’t a surprising move. We’ll have to see if Pressley can capitalize on his opportunity. Eli Manning might not have a future with the New York Giants, who have signaled by trading defensive starters Eli Apple and Damon Harrison for draft picks that they are more focused on their future than their present. Manning, though Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , continues to insist that playing elsewhere is not on his mind.“It’s just not something I’m thinking about,” Manning said Wednesday evening. “I’m thinking about playing for the Giants this week against the Washington Redskins. That’s the mindset, and I haven’t brought myself to think about another scenario.With the Oct. 30 trade deadline less than a week away, just another reminder that the 15-year veteran and two-time Super Bowl MVP has a full no-trade clause.Manning was asked if the trades signaled to players that the team has shifted its focus away from the present.“It’s our job as players to worry about this season and do our job, and go prepare each week, and go play the games, and win football games,” he said. “That’s all we can do. We’re not worried about next year or next week. We’re worried about today Authentic Kerry Wynn Jersey , and these next couple of days getting ready for Washington.“I think the mindset just has to be worried about trying to get a win this week. Just staying committed, staying strong, and keep fighting through this. We’ve got to stay together. We’re getting a little bit better. We’re close, we’ve played in some close games. If we just keep grinding, things will start going our way.”
