Former Clemson defensive back Coty Sensabaugh was waived by the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday but has reportedly already signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan.
Sensabaugh had agreed to a three-year contract worth around $15 million with the St. Louis Rams this past offseason so he will get $4.5 million for his base salary ($1 mil) and roster bonus ($3.5 mil) for playing just four games with the Rams.
He started the first two games of the 2016 season but was soon replaced and was inactive for the Ram's fourth game of the season. The Rams were ranked 23rd in passing defense last season.
In 2015, Sensabaugh had 60 tackles with two interceptions including picking off Jamesis Winstons' first career pass and returning it for a touchdown. For his NFL career, he has 169 tackles, two interceptions and a sack in four previous seasons with the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans selected Sensabaugh with the #115 overall pick in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after playing at Clemson. He had 87 tackles, four interceptions, and 18 pass breaks ups in four seasons (52 games) for the Tigers.
