The New York Giants made a bunch of roster moves Thursday, and one of their additions was Staten Island, NY native and Montclair State alum Bobby Skinner, a defensive tackle. Skinner along with Laron Scott, a cornerback/kicker returner, were signed by the Giants, while linebacker Clint Sintim and defensive end Justin Trattou were waived from the roster.
Skinner (6-foot-3, 298 pounds) was a New Dorp HS product who earned all-city and all-state mentions before attending Montclair State, a Division III program located minutes from MetLife Stadium. In 10 games last season he compiled 28 tackles (20 solo) and 6.5 sacks.
Scott averaged 30.6 yards per kick return last season at Georgia Southern.
Sintim, the Giants' 2009 second-round pick, was let go after a failed physical. Sintim, who suffered from many injury problems throughout the last few years, played in 24 games, made 11 tackles and one sack for the Giants.
Meanwhile, Trattou was suffering form heel and ankle injures and was unable to practice.
