Joins Houston's practice squad

The Texans signed Bachman to their practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Bachman was last let go by the Giants prior to the start of the 2022 season, but he's since joined Houston's practice squad Tuesday where he'll serve as an emergency depth option at wide receiver. The 26-year-old posted a monster preseason performance for the Giants back on Aug. 21, where he caught 11 passes for 122 yards and two scores in a 25-22 win over the Bengals.

Let go by Giants

The Giants waived Bachman on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Bachman made a strong push for a roster spot during the preseason, logging 19 receptions for 166 yards and two touchdowns over three games. However, he'll part ways with the team ahead of the regular season.

Increases roster odds with big game

Bachman hauled in 11 of 14 targets for 122 yards and two touchdowns in a 25-22 preseason win over the Bengals on Sunday.

Analysis: Bachman was pretty quiet in New York's first exhibition contest against New England, catching two passes for 17 yards. He exploded with a huge performance Sunday, however, leading the Giants in targets, catches and receiving yards while hauling in both of the team's two receiving scores. All of Bachman's work came with third-string quarterback Davis Webb behind center, and the pair connected on a pair of fourth-quarter TDs, including one that gave New York the comeback win with 35 seconds remaining in the contest. Bachman has been thought to be on the bubble for the 53-man roster, so it's possible that this performance will go a long way toward making his case for a spot on the team.

Promoted again

Bachman was elevated from the Giants' practice squad Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Promoted for Week 17

Bachman was elevated to the Giants' active roster from the practice squad for Sunday's game against the Bears, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Bachman didn't play any offensive snaps in his lone game action of the season, but he'll receive another opportunity Sunday. The 25-year-old could receive some opportunities in the passing game since Kenny Golladay and fellow practice-squad promotions Pharoh Cooper and Davis Sills are New York's only available wideouts.

Cut by Giants

Entering 2021 league year a Giant

Bachman signed a reserve/future contract with the Giants on Monday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Bachman was demoted to the practice squad Oct. 23 after fielding one offensive snap Week 7 against the Eagles, and he was never elevated to the active roster over the remainder of the season. Now confirmed a spot with the organization heading into the new league year in March, the 24-year-old will aim to elevate his way through the ranks of New York's WR depth chart.

Jan 4, 2021 6:11 PM EST


Back to practice roster

Backman reverted to the Giants' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Bachman made his NFL debut Thursday against the Eagles but played just one snap. He'll drop back to the practice squad for now, but he could be brought back up for the Week 8 matchup against the Buccaneers if C.J. Board (concussion) remains out.

Oct 23, 2020 9:09 PM EST


Elevated from practice squad

Bachman was activated from the Giants' practice squad Thursday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old is a late addition to New York's active roster, as the Giants attempt to climb within a half game of first place in the NFC East with a win over Philadelphia on Thursday Night Football. The Giants also activated Sterling Shepard (toe) off injured reserve Thursday and will evaluate his status in pregame workouts. If Shepard proves unable to suit up for Week 7, Bachman will have an elevated role in a receiving corps otherwise consisting of Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Austin Mack.

Signs with practice squad

The Giants signed Bachman to the practice squad Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Bachman has passed a physical and a COVID-19 test, so he'll join the Giants' scout team this week. The Wake Forest product has yet to make his NFL debut after entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2018, and his quickest path to a roster spot would be through special teams.

Oct 5, 2020 12:01 PM EST


Cut from practice squad

The Giants released Bachman from the practice squad Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Bachman apparently had a solid training camp, but the Giants are letting him go. He's still awaiting his NFL debut after entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2019.
