The New York Giants have signed unrestricted free agents cornerback Amani Oruwariye (Detroit Lions) and tight end Tommy Sweeney (Buffalo Bills). Oruwariye reportedly signed a 1-year contract.

The 27-year old, 6’2”, 202-pound Oruwariye was drafted in the 5th round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Lions. In four seasons in Detroit, Oruwariye played in 53 regular-season games with 36 starts, accruing 173 tackles, 24 pass defenses, nine interceptions, and two fumble recoveries. His best seasons were in 2020 and 2021, when he started 29 games. Oruwariye struggled in 2022 and was benched in late October after he had started five games.

The 27-year old, 6’5”, 251-pound Sweeney was drafted in the 7th round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Bills. In four seasons in Buffalo, Sweeney played in 24 regular-season games with four starts, catching just 18 passes for 165 yards and one touchdown. He missed all of 2020 with foot, COVID, and myocarditis issues. Sweeney is a good blocker.

The New York Giants have signed unrestricted free agent wide receiver Jamison Crowder (Buffalo Bills) to a reported 1-year contact.

The 29-year old, 5’9”, 177-pound Crowder was originally drafted in the 4th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. He has spent time with Washington (2015-2018), New York Jets (2019-2021), and Buffalo Bills (2022). In eight NFL seasons, Crowder has played in 100 regular-season games with 51 starts, catching 415 passes for 4,667 yards and 28 touchdowns. He only played in four games in 2022 due to a broken ankle that he suffered in Week 4. Crowder lacks ideal size, but he has been a productive slot receiver. Crowder also has experience returning punts.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed defensive lineman Henry Mondeaux away from the New York Giants. Mondeaux was not tendered by the Giants as a potential restricted free agent, thus making him an unrestricted free agent.

The Giants signed Mondeaux to the Practice Squad in September 2022 and the 53-man roster in November 2022. He ended up playing in 11 regular-season games with four starts, being credited with 16 tackles. Mondeaux played 33 percent of defensive snaps in games that he appeared. The 6’5”, 280-pound Mondeaux was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the New Orleans Saints after the 2018 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Saints (2018), Kansas City Chiefs (2019), and Pittsburgh Steelers (2019-2022). The Steelers waived him in late August 2022. Mondeaux has played in 37 NFL games with six starts, accruing just 37 tackles and two sacks. He is mainly a run defender who lacks the athletic ability to make flashy plays.
