Giants' Scott Simonson: Inks deal with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

Simonson began the season with the Giants but couldn't overcome an ankle injury and was eventually released with a settlement. He's healthy now, though, and the Giants need depth at tight end with Evan Engram dealing with a mid-foot sprain and Rhett Ellison suffering a concussion Sunday. Simonson suited up in 16 games for the Giants last year and hauled in nine passes for 86 yards and a score. His first chance to gear up is Nov. 24 against the Bears.

The Giants released Simonson (ankle) from IR with an injury settlement, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Giants' Scott Simonson: Headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Simonson on injured reserve Saturday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Simonson suffered the ankle injury during the final preseason game Thursday and was unable to return. His placement shows that the injury is serious, and he will have to sit out eight weeks before he's eligible to return. Barring an injury settlement, he'll stay on the Giants' roster.

Giants' Scott Simonson: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots due to an ankle injury, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Giants' Scott Simonson: Signs one-year contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson signed a one-year contract extension with the Giants on Tuesday, Matt Lombardo of reports.

Primarily known for his run-blocking capabilities, Simonson did wind up starting four games for the Giants in 2018 thanks to a litany of injuries to Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison, recording a career-high nine catches and 86 total yards through 16 games. The 26-year-old won't threaten Engram's status as the team's top tight end, and likely wouldn't challenge Ellison either should the Giants wind up keeping the backup tight end, who has two years left on an untenable four-year, $18 million contract.

Giants' Scott Simonson: New career high in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson caught nine of 14 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown across 16 games with the Giants in 2018.

Before 2018, Simonson had only caught one pass for 10 yards in his NFL career. The 26-year-old, who went undrafted out of Assumption in 2014, benefited from increased offensive usage last season while fellow tight ends Evan Engram and Rhett Ellison (concussion) each missed multiple games due to injury. Simonson is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Giants' Scott Simonson: Working as No. 2 tight end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson will serve as the Giants' No. 2 tight end in Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys.

The Giants will be without blocking specialist Rhett Ellison (concussion), allowing Simonson to move up a spot in the pecking order at tight end. While Evan Engram will start and handle most of the pass-catching duties at the position, Simonson showed in relief of Ellison last week against the Colts that he won't be a total non-factor in the passing game. In that contest, Simonson played 24 offensive snaps and was targeted three times, reeling in all of them for 16 yards and a touchdown.

Giants' Scott Simonson: Signs with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson (back) inked a contract with the Giants on Tuesday.

Simonson spent all of 2017 on injured reserve with the Panthers and wasn't tendered an offer by the club this offseason. The Giants will give him a shot instead, clearing the way for his signing by waiving Aaron Davis with an injury designation.

Scott Simonson: Not retained by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simonson (back) didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Panthers and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

Simonson spent the entire 2017 season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed back injury he suffered during the preseason. It isn't clear where he stands in his recovery, but there hasn't been any reported concern of him not being available to work out this offseason, let alone be at risk of not being ready for Week 1.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
