Giants roster move: OL Devery Hamilton, S. Trenton Thompson signed on 53-man roster

With question marks over the availability of several of their offensive lineman for Thursday’s game against the Dallas Cowboysthe New York Giants re-include Devery Hamilton in the 53-man squad. With injuries in the secondary school, the Giants also sign rookie safety Trenton Thompson to the 53-man practice team roster.

The Giants are sacking linebacker Austin Calitro and fullback Quincy Roche to make room.

BBV’s Ed Valentine says that based on the five healthiest offensive linemen on the roster before adding Hamilton, Thursday’s Giants offensive line could look like this:

LT—Andreas Thomas

LG—Jack Anderson

C—Nick Gates

RG—Mark Glowinski

RT—Matt Peart

History of the New York Giants Playing on Thanksgiving |

This is the Giants’ 16th Thanksgiving game, the sixth-highest total in the NFL. Each of them was played in the streets. They’re 7-5-3 all the time on Thanksgiving. The Giants have lost their last three Turkey Day games in 1992, 2009 and 2017.

During the 1920s and 1930s, the Giants regularly attended Thanksgiving. But after that tie in Brooklyn in 1938, they didn’t play on the holidays again until 1982.

Giants dig deep for cornerback help for Cowboys challenge | New York Post

The Giants are in a situation this week that must feel eerily familiar to Wink Martindale, who oversaw the collapse of the Ravens’ defense late last season when cornerback injuries forced the backups to play. He joked in retrospect a few months into his role as the Giants’ defensive coordinator that the slide that preceded his departure after nine mostly successful seasons in Baltimore taught him “not to go to DoorDash to find a spare corner.”

Kayvon Thibodeaux has emerged as a differentiator since joining the lineup. He’s only had one sack in the season, but he’s logged seven quarterback loads, three quarterback hits, 20 tackles, three battered passes, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

Thibodeaux has started in all eight games he has appeared in and played 77 percent of defensive snaps. Would New York like to see some more of the fifth overall pick? Sure, but Thibodeaux has proven to be a reliable starter who can occasionally make a big play.

It’s no coincidence that the Giants lost in two of Barkley’s worst games this year. He had just 22 yards on 15 carries in a 31-18 loss to the Detroit Lions last weekend and rushed 20 times for 53 yards in a 27-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8.

If Barkley can stay healthy and get back on track from his season low in Week 11, the Giants should be fine. But if the fifth-year veteran suffers an injury or suffers a postseason slump, New York could quickly find themselves out in the playoffs or even out altogether.

“I talk to him every day, but we don’t talk about it [his decision] too much,” Shepard said. “Obviously he knows we want him here. He would like to be here. But for that everything has to fit. There’s a whole bunch of intangible things that have to come together to make him here. And I understand that. This is a business and his business has to be right for him to do it.”

How Julian Love Became Mayor of Defense for the Giants |

On the corner of Monroe and Wabash in downtown Chicago, in the lavish Palmer House Hotel, DT Love mingled with Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. He chatted with Michael Jordan and Venus and Serena Williams. As the hotel’s catering and events director for 13 years, DT led a team of staff on weekend events that attracted some of the world’s most famous personalities.

And on some of those weekends, DT’s wife and three kids – including his son Julian – would travel down from Chicago’s western suburbs to hang out and watch him work. As a kid, Julian spent so much time at the Palmer House that “I feel like I lived in that hotel,” he said. This is how he saw his father going about things, how he spoke to everyone from VIPs to cleaning staff – with patience and respect.
