The Giants have terminated Ogletree's contract, reports.

Ogletree, who caught just five passes for 50 yards in seven games for the Giants last season, will now look for a depth wideout job elsewhere, while players such as Geremy Davis, Corey Washington, Preston Parker and Marcus Harris look to secure spots on New York's final roster.

Ogletree re-signed with the Giants on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.After signing with the Giants in October, Ogletree caught just five passes for 50 yards in seven games. He'll likely need to compete for a roster spot in 2015, and with Odell Beckham, Victor Cruz and Reuben Randle all under contract, Ogletree is unlikely to make much of an impact.

Ogletree will sign with the Giants, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

With Victor Cruz done for the year with a torn patellar tendon, the Giants will welcome Ogletree aboard for depth at the wide receiver position. Ogletree made a splash in Week 1 of the 2012 season while with Dallas, catching eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns, but he's scored just four times in his other 61 career games and is unlikely to see significant looks in New York behind the likes of Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham.

Ogletree is inactive for Monday's game against the Giants, the Lions' official site reports.

With Ogletree and Ryan Broyles both inactive, the report suggests that fellow receiver Corey Fuller likely has a role in Monday's game plan, though Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate remain entrenched as the team's top wideouts, in any case.

The Lions may use a rotation behind starting wideouts Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports.

Ogletree and Kris Durham are the leading candidates to work behind the starters, with Jeremy Ross and Ryan Broyles also in the picture. None of the bunch has really stood out this preseason, and there probably won't be many targets left for the third and fourth wide receivers in Detroit's offense.

Ogletree dropped his only target in Saturday's preseason opener against the Browns.

While a lone miscue shouldn't harm Ogletree's bid for the No. 3 wideout role, his drop was rather embarrassing, as the ball went through his hands and smacked his facemask, before popping up in the air for a near-interception. While Kris Durham got the start in place of Calvin Johnson, bot Ogletree and Durham played a good number of snaps early in the game.

Lions WR Kevin Ogletree has "spent time" with the first-team offense during the first two days of training camp.

Ogletree is competing with the likes of Kris Durham, Ryan Broyles, and Jeremy Ross for the third receiver role in Detroit. Though he seems like the front runner now, Ogletree will carry little fantasy value even if he wins the job. The Lions love to utilize their running backs in the passing game, and rookie TE Eric Ebron should see most of his snaps in the slot this season.
