Former Scappoose High standout David Mayo will kick off the NFL season with a new team — and move from one coast to the other.
This week, Mayo was signed as a free-agent linebacker by the New York Giants.
The Giants' first game is 1:25 p.m. PT Sunday on the road against a big NFC East rival, the Dallas Cowboys.
New York was 5-11 last season; Dallas won the division with a 10-6 record.
Mayo, 6-2 and 240 pounds, got picked up shortly after being waived by the San Francisco 49ers, who signed him as a free agent in March.
Mayo has played four NFL seasons, all with the Carolina Panthers.
The Giants opened up a spot for Mayo, 26, on their 53-man roster when they traded former starter B.J. Goodson, 26, to the Green Bay Packers for an undisclosed draft pick.
Mayo was drafted by the NFL out of Texas State, with the Panthers plucking him in the fifth round and at No. 169 overall.
In 59 games (four starts), he has made 34 tackles (23 solo) on defense, and another 32 on special teams, where he was a regular contributor for the Panthers.
He played in all 16 games in both 2017 and 2018, making three starts a year ago.
