On Saturday, the Giants said farewell to practice-squad linebacker Deontae Skinner (pictured). They considered offering employment to four others.

Per a league source, Cassanova McKinzy, Deiontrez Mount, Eric Pinkins, and Myke Tavarres had tryouts with the team.

None of them got Skinner’s spot, however. The Giants brought back quarterback Logan Thomas instead.
