Giants waive PK Mike Hollis, get S Jack Brewer

ESPN

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Veteran placekicker Mike Hollis was waived with a failed physical by the New York Giants on Thursday.

Hollis, who signed a five-year, $4 million contract a year ago, never kicked for the Giants in a regular-season game. He hurt his back in training camp and spent last season on injured reserve.

The move means Matt Bryant, the free agent who has been the Giants' placekicker the past two years, will head to training camp on top of their depth chart.

The Giants also claimed safety Jack Brewer on waivers from the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday.

Brewer is entering his third NFL season. In two years with the Vikings, he played in 21 games with one start.

Brewer appeared in six games last season before going on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle.
