The New York Giants bolstered their offensive line while potentially damaging their struggling running game by signing Dallas Reynolds, who started 14 games at center last season for the Philadelphia Eagles, but cut running back Da’Rel Scott:
Giants waived running back Da’Rel Scott, their second-leading rusher this season.

It’s a bit odd the team cut Scott, but with Andre brown set to return from the short-term I.R. recall, he was going to become expendable very quickly.
And courtesy of Giants.com, here’s a brief bio on Reynolds:
Reynolds, 6-4 and 320 pounds, originally joined the Eagles as a rookie free agent on May 1, 2009. He spent the majority of the 2009 season (when he as on the active roster for the season’s final game, but did not play) and the entire 2010 and 2011 seasons on Philadelphia’s practice squad before making the 53-man roster last year. He played in all 16 games in 2012 and when Jason Kelce suffered two torn knee ligaments in Week 2, Reynolds stepped in as the starting center.
Reynolds earned first-team All-Mountain West honors in 2008 at BYU, where he started 51 career games. He played center as a senior and left tackle as a junior.
