Giants Lose OL Evan Brown to Miami

Patricia Traina

Second-year offensive lineman Evan Brown was signed off the Giants' practice squad by the Miami Dolphins.

Brown, who spent his rookie season on the Giants, but did not make the 53-man roster coming out of camp this year. 

He was, however, signed to the 53-man roster on November 9 when the Giants had injuries on the offensive line, but he was waived on November 12 and then re-signed to the practice squad.

Brown, 6-foot-3, 316 pounds, played his college ball at SMU. He signed with the Giants as an undrafted rookie free agent in May 2018.

Brown and the Dolphins will visit MetLife Stadium a week from Sunday to face the Giants.

The Giants signed defensive back Rashaan Gaulden to their practice squad. Gaulden, 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds, played in 24 games in two seasons with the Carolina Panthers, including nine games this season. He was released on Nov. 25.

Gaulden was credited with 14 tackles (10 solo) and returned one punt for the Panthers. He was a 2018 third-round draft choice (85th overall) by Carolina, from the University of Tennessee.

The Giants still have another practice squad spot to fill, as Gaulden fills the opening created when the team promoted Colin Holba to the 53-man roster last week.
