According to The New York Daily News, the New York Giants have signed unrestricted free agent defensive back Josh Gordy to a 1-year, veteran minimum contract.
The 28-year old Gordy was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars after the 2010 NFL Draft. Since that time, he has spent time with the Jaguars (2010), Green Bay Packers (2010), St. Louis Rams (2011), and Indianapolis Colts (2012-14). In five NFL seasons, Gordy has played in 59 regular-season games with 11 starts.
In 2014 with the Colts, Gordy played in 16 regular-season games with one start, finishing the season with 24 tackles, 4 pass defenses, and 1 interception. Gordy’s best season was in 2011 with the Rams under Steve Spagnuolo when he started nine games and accrued 43 tackles and 3 interceptions. The Rams traded him to the Colts in August 2012.
Gordy, who is 5’11 and 196 pounds, has experience at both corner and safety. He started one game at safety for the Colts in 2014, but reportedly struggled as the team’s fourth corner.
