The New York Giants claimed offensive lineman Jamon Brown off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams on Wednesday.
Brown confirmed the news on his Twitter account, writing, "Headed to the Big Apple!! So thankful for my opportunity to join the .@Giants family! Looking forward to starting this journey!! Let's do this!!"
Brown, 25, was a third-round pick in 2015 and started all 16 games for the Rams last season, but he missed the first four games this year due to a substance-abuse suspension. When he returned, Austin Blythe kept the starting job at right guard, and Brown was waived on Tuesday to make room for trade acquisition Dante Fowler Jr.
In 42 career games (30 starts), Brown has allowed five sacks and committed 10 penalties.
The Giants have allowed 31 sacks this season, tied for second in the NFL and equaling the number of sacks Eli Manning took all of last season.
