JoJo Nicolas, who spent time with the Giants in 2012, died Wednesday from injuries stemming from a car accident.
Nicolas was critically injured Tuesday when his car collided with a tractor-trailer while driving home from Miami Beach. He was 24.
After a successful career as a defensive back at the University of Miami (2007-11), Nicolas was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He was released late in training camp.
"The entire University of Miami family mourns the loss of JoJo Nicolas," Miami athletic director Blake James said in a statement. "JoJo was a valued member of our community, our school and our football program, and his loss is devastating to everyone he touched. On behalf of the university, I send our condolences and thoughts and prayers to JoJo's family, friends and teammates. He will forever be a part of The U."
