The New York Giants have waived linebacker Clint Sintim after he failed a physical.
The Giants announced the move Thursday while adding they waived-injured defensive end Justin Trattou and signed defensive back-return specialist Laron Scott and defensive tackle Bobby Skinner.
Sintim suffered knee injuries in each of the past two season. The 2009 second-round draft pick has been on the physically unable to perform list.
Trattou, who appeared in six games last season, suffered ankle and heel injuries early in training camp.
Scott was waived by New Orleans on Aug. 6. He had a 67-yard kickoff return in the Hall of Fame game against Arizona the previous night.
Skinner played last season at Montclair State.

At last, after two long years with the Giants, Adrian Tracy has found a spot on defense.
He also has a new name.
Meet ''Young Osi,'' the defensive end who has a lot in common with his fellow position mate, Osi Umenyiora.
Tracy is a little undersized to be an end, but he has the same type of speed and explosive burst that helped make Umenyiora a two-time Pro Bowl...

Players from both the New York Giants and Jets downplayed the hometown rivalry between the teams, but acknowledged that there's always a little extra buzz - even in preseason - when they get together.
