Defensive End George Selvie Visits New York Giants: According to The Bergen Record, unrestricted free agent defensive end George Selvie (Dallas Cowboys) is visiting the New York Giants today.
The 28-year old Selvie was a collegiate teammate of defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul at the University of South Florida. He was drafted in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. Since that time, he has played with the Rams (2010), Carolina Panthers (2011), Jacksonville Jaguars (2011-12), and Cowboys (2013-14). Selvie also worked out for the Giants at a mini-camp in 2013 but was not signed and then signed with the Cowboys. He started 29 regular-season games for Dallas in the last two years, accruing 75 tackles and 10 sacks.
Selvie has good size (6’4”, 270 pounds). He is a solid run defender who flashes at times in the pass rush, particularly in 2013 when he registered seven sacks.
New York Jets Sign Offensive Lineman James Brewer: The New York Jets have signed unrestricted free agent offensive lineman James Brewer (New York Giants) to a 1-year contract.
Brewer did not develop as a player after being drafted in the 4th round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Giants. A year after playing in all 16 games with eight starts in 2013, Brewer only played in two games in November before being placed on injured reserve in December with a concussion.
Brewer is the third Giant to depart the team in free agency this offseason. Safety Antrel Rolle signed with the Chicago Bears and cornerback Walter Thurmond signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
