New York Giants will see a number of familiar...


When the New York Giants take on the Miami Dolphins this Sunday at MetLife Stadium, they will be staring across the field at a number of familiar faces and former friends.

The Dolphins recently signed offensive lineman Evan Brown off of the Giants’ practice squad. Brown had signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2018 and remained with the team until poached by Miami last week.

Brown is only the tip of the ex-Giants iceberg, however.

In addition to Brown, who backs up Michael Deiter at left guard, the Dolphins play a pair of former Giants at defensive end — John Jenkins and Avery Moss.

Jenkins, the starter, was signed by the Giants in September of 2018 and spent that season with the team. He was re-signed in 2019, but waived as a part of final cuts.

Moss, Jenkins’ primary backup, was a fifth-round pick of the Giants in 2017. Like Jenkins, he remained with the team through final cuts in September when he was cut loose after failing live up to expectations.

As Billy Mays would say, “but wait, there’s more!”

The Dolphins don’t just have ex-Giants on offense and defense, but on special teams as well.

When specials are out on the field, the Giants will be seeing a lot from long-snapper Taybor Pepper, who was signed to a reserve/futures contract by New York in January before being waived as a part of final cuts in September.

Finally, Swiss Army Knife Jake Carlock, who is loved by Giants fans and should still be in East Rutherford, resides on Miami’s practice squad.

“Jake’s doing great. He’s really a hard-working kid, plays multiple positions. I think he’s doing a really good job. We were excited to get him, excited to have him and I think he’s got a future,” Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said during a Wednesday conference call. “I think he’s got the talent and the toughness and grit to work on any and everything to make himself the best player he can be. I think he’s done a really good job, and he’s got a lot of room for development.”
