But the Giants’ offensive front got a little better on Wednesday, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced that they’d claimed former Rams’ offensive guard Jamon Brown on waivers.

The Rams drafted Brown in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He started in 30 games for the Rams prior to the 2018 season — a year in which he started on a two game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. The suspension opened the door for current starter Austin Blythe, who played exceptionally in his absence and never returned the starting gig.
The release of Brown came as a surprise to many, as the Rams made room yesterday after acquiring former Jaguars pass-rusher Dante Fowler Jr.
The Giants got a quality player today, and one they could certainly (and immediately) use to help keep Eli Manning upright.
Best of luck, Jamon.
