Print

Mario Edwards needed less than 24 hours to find a new home.

The defensive end has been claimed via waivers by the New York Giants, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

Edwards, a former second-round pick of the Raiders, was waived by Oakland on Saturday as part of the team's cut down to 53 players. Oakland shopped Edwards before the roster deadline, but couldn't strike a deal, Pelissero added.

In three seasons with the Raiders, Edwards recorded 5.5 sacks and 71 tackles. He missed nearly all of the 2016 season due to a hip injury.

1. The Denver Broncos claimed quarterback Kevin Hogan via waivers, Pelissero reported, and subsequently waived Paxton Lynch.
