According to sources cited by The Worldwide Leader in Sports, the Giants have acquired Boogie Basham while they have also released outside linebacker Oshane Ximines.
Basham, a second-round pick by the Bills out of Wake Forest in 2019, recorded 20 total tackles and 4.5 sacks in two seasons with the Bills. His arrival will add depth to an OL group that has been somewhat lacking past starters Kayvon Thibodeau and Azeez Ojulari.
Joe Schoen, the Giants general manager, was part of the Bills front office when they drafted Basham. Head coach Brian Daboll was also the Bills’ offensive coordinator back then.
The Giants also added inside linebacker Isaiah Simmons, a former first-round pick by the Arizona Cardinals, last week. Simmons has been used as an outside LB before but will be working mainly with the Giants’ inside LB group.
The team is also activating wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson from the physically unable to perform list as they put their 53-man roster together ahead of Tuesday’s 4 PM cut deadline.
Robinson, who tore his right ACL last November, will have two weeks of practice to get himself in shape.
