Giants sign guard Wes Martin off Washington’s practice squad

·1 min read

The New York Giants signed guard Wes Martin off the Washington Football Team’s practice squad on Monday.

Martin, a fourth-round pick in 2019, appeared in 25 games for Washington, with 10 starts in 2019-20. He began the 2020 season as Washington’s starter at left guard, replacing Ereck Flowers, who left in free agency.

After five games, Martin was replaced by Saahdiq Charles, who was quickly injured. Instead of turning back to Martin, Washington’s coaches went with veteran Wes Schweitzer, who started the rest of the season.

Martin was a part of Washington’s final cuts at the end of training camp but was quickly re-signed to the practice squad. Washington protected Martin in Week 1 but did not the last two weeks.

Martin replaces Nick Gates on New York’s roster, who injured his leg in the Week 2 meeting between Washington and the Giants.
