The New York Giants have signed undrafted rookie free agent linebacker Tony Johnson. Johnson fills the roster spot created when the Giants waived linebacker Ryan Jones last week with an undisclosed injury.
The 6’2”, 254-pound Johnson played collegiately at Louisiana Tech. As a senior, Johnson was credited with 69 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, three pass defenses, and two forced fumbles. At his Pro Day, Johnson ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.81 range.
