The New York Giants released safety Andrew Adams and brought back kicker Ryan Santoso on Friday.

The team also signed wide receiver Travis Toivonen ahead of Sunday’s preseason finale against the New York Jets.

Adams, 29, rejoined the Giants on July 26 after four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He has 190 tackles and seven interceptions in 87 games (35 starts) with the Giants (2016-17) and Bucs.

Santoso, who turned 27 on Friday, provides insurance after Graham Gano sustained a concussion in last Sunday’s preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Santoso was on the Giants’ practice squad in 2020. He has made 4-of-5 field goals in seven career games with the Tennessee Titans (2019), Carolina Panthers (2021) and Detroit Lions (2021).

Toivonen, 24, spent time on New York’s practice squad last season but has not appeared in an NFL game.

NFL teams must reduce their active rosters to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
