2024 New York Giants Free Agent Signings


WR CHASE COTA (Reserve/Future Contract): The Giants signed Chase Cota to a reserve/future contract in January 2024. The 6’4”, 200-pound Cota was originally signed by the Detroit Lions as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2023 NFL Draft. He was cut by the Lions in late August and he spent time on the Practice Squads of the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans.

OC JIMMY MORRISSEY (Reserve/Future Contract): The Giants signed Jimmy Morrissey to a reserve/future contract in January 2024. The 6’4”, 305-pound Morrissey was originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Las Vegas Raiders. He began his rookie season on the team’s Practice Squad, but the Houston Texans signed him to their 53-man roster in October 2021. In his three seasons with Houston, Morrissey has spent time on both the 53-man roster and Practice Squad. He has played in 14 regular-season games with four starts.

2023 New York Giants Free Agent Signings


OL JUSTIN PUGH (Street Free Agent): The Giants signed Justin Pugh to the Practice Squad and then the 53-man roster in October 2023. The 6’5”, 311-pound Pugh was originally drafted by the Giants in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. After five seasons in New York, Pugh signed with the Arizona Cardinals in 2018, where he played five more seasons. Pugh tore the ACL in his right knee in October 2022 and missed the rest of the year. Pugh has played in 120 regular-season games with 119 starts. He has experience at playing both tackle and guard.

OT JULIEN DAVENPORT (Street Free Agent): The Giants signed free agent Julién Davenport in mid-August 2023. The 6’7”, 315-pound Davenport was originally drafted in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. He has spent time with the Texans (2017-2018), Miami Dolphins (2019-2020), Indianapolis Colts (2021), Chicago Bears (2022), and Arizona Cardinals (2022-2023). Davenport has played in 60 regular-season games with 32 starts. His last action came in 2021 with Colts when he started four games. The Cardinals cut him in June 2023.

NT DONOVAN JETER (Cut by Chicago Bears): The Giants signed Donovan Jeter in early August 2023 after he was cut by the Chicago Bears. The 6’3”, 325-pound Jeter was originally signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2022 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Steelers (2022), Washington Commanders (2022), and Bears (2023). He has only played in one NFL game, with Washington in 2022.

OC SEAN HARLOW (Unrestricted Free Agent from Arizona Cardinals): The 6’4”, 284-pound Harlow was originally drafted in the 4th round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. He has spent time with the Falcons (2017, 2018-2020), Indianapolis Colts (2018), and Arizona Cardinals (2021-2022). Harlow has played in 33 regular-season games with eight starts, five at left guard in 2021 and three at center in 2022 with the Cardinals.

DL KEVIN ATKINS (Street Free Agent): The Giants signed free agent Kevin Atkins in late July 2023. The 6’2”, 307-pound Atkins was originally signed by the San Francisco 49ers after the 2022 NFL Draft, but waived in late August. He played for the XFL’s St. Louis BattleHawks in the spring of 2023.

RB SAQUON BARKLEY (Re-Signed Franchise Player): After missing most of the 2020 season with a serious knee injury and a disappointing season in 2021, Saquon Barkley had a career revival in 2022 under the new coaching regime. Barkley played a tougher, more physical style and finished the season with a career-high 295 rushing attempts for 1,312 yards (4.4 yards per carry), and 10 touchdowns. He also caught a team-leading 57 passes for 338 yards. Barkley only fumbled the ball once, out of bounds. He also played in every game, except for being a healthy scratch in the regular-season finale. Post-injury, what was missing from his game was the big, explosive plays that were his signature during his rookie season. Nevertheless, Barkley was voted to his second Pro Bowl for his productive performance. The Giants drafted Barkley with the #2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He became only the third rookie in NFL history to accrue 2,000 yards from scrimmage and breaking a number of franchise records. He also was voted to the Pro Bowl and named “Associated Press NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year,” “FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Year,” “Pro Football Writers of America Offensive Rookie of the Year,” and “Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year.” As a rookie, Barkley started all 16 games, rushing 261 times for 1,307 yards (5.0 yards per carry) and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 91 passes for 721 yards and four touchdowns. Barkley also led the NFL with seven 40+ yard runs and six 50+ yard runs. Barkley endured a forgettable sophomore season as a pro in 2019. A high-ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 3 nagged him much of the remainder of the season. Nevertheless, Barkley still rushed 217 times for 1,003 yards (4.6 yards per carry) and six touchdowns. He also caught 52 passes for 438 yards and two touchdowns. The Giants placed Barkley on Injured Reserve in late September 2020 after he tore the ACL, partially tore the meniscus, and sprained the MCL in his right knee in Week 2. He finished the season with just 19 carries for 34 yards (1.8 yards per carry) and six catches for 60 yards. In 2021, a softer, more tentative Barkley started all 13 games he played in, missing four contests with an ankle injury. He finished the season with 162 carries for 593 yards (3.7 yards per carry) and just two touchdowns. Barkley also caught 41 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns.

OLB TASHAWN BOWER (Unrestricted Free Agent from Las Vegas Raiders): The 6’5”, 250-pound Tashawn Bower originally signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2017 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Vikings (2017-2019, 2021),  New England Patriots (2019-2021), and Las Vegas Raiders (2022). Bower has played in 26 regular season games with three starts, accruing 23 tackles, two sacks, and one pass defense. His three starts came with New England in 2020.

DL BRANDIN BRYANT (Street Free Agent): The Giants signed Brandin Bryant as a street free agent in July 2023 after he was cut by the Buffalo Bills in early June. The 6’2”, 305-pound Bryant was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Seattle Seahawks after the 2016 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Seahawks (2016), New York Jets (2016-2917), Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2018), Montreal Alouettes (2019), Cleveland Browns (2019-2020), Miami Dolphins (2020), Buffalo Bills (2020–2022, 2023), and Houston Texans (2022). Bryant has played in 11 regular-season games with no starts, accruing nine tackles.

RB JAMES ROBINSON (Street Free Agent): The 5’9”, 219-pound Robinson was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2020 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Jaguars (2020-2022), New York Jets (2022), and New England Patriots (2023). Robinson has played in 39 regular season games with 32 starts, rushing the ball 514 times for 2,262 yards and 18 touchdowns. He was most productive in 2020-2021 when he started 27 games, but he did tear his Achilles’ tendon near the end of the 2021 campaign.

WR COLE BEASLEY (Unrestricted Free Agent from Buffalo Bills): The 5’8”, 174-pound Beasley was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Dallas Cowboys after the 2012 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Cowboys (2012-2018), Bills (2019-2021, 2022), and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2022). Beasley has played in 138 regular-season games with 41 starts, catching 489 passes for 4,966 yards, and 28 touchdowns. He barely played in 2022 for the Buccaneers and Bills, but started 18 games for the Bills in 2020-2021. In 2020, he earned second-team All-Pro honors, catching 82 passes for 967 yards and four touchdowns. Beasley also has some experience returning punts earlier in his career.

DL KOBE SMITH (Street Free Agent): The 6’2”, 312-pound Smith was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Tennessee Titans after the 2020 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Titans (2020), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2020-2022), Philadelphia Eagles (2022), Atlanta Falcons (2022), and San Antonio Brahmas (2023). Smith has yet to play in a regular-season NFL game.

OLB OSHANE XIMINES (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): Coming into 2022, many felt Oshane Ximines was on the bubble and would not make it out of training camp. He had a good summer, made the team, and contributed as a reserve and sometimes starter. In the end, Ximines played in 15 regular-season games with four starts (51 percent of defensive snaps in those 15 games). He was credited with 24 tackles, three tackles for losses, two sacks, eight quarterback hits, two pass defenses, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. The Giants drafted Ximines in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He played in 16 games with two starts as a rookie, but missed the last 12 games of 2020 with a rotator cuff injury that required surgery. 2021 was a very disappointing season as his playing time declined markedly as the season progressed, being inactive for much of the second half of the year. Ximines has a nice combination of size (6’4”, 254 pounds) and overall athletic-ability. Although somewhat improved in 2022, he still needs to improve his play in setting the edge as a run defender. Ximines flashes at times as a pass rusher, but is not consistent enough and will disappear for long stretches.

DL A’SHAWN ROBINSON (Unrestricted Free Agent from Los Angeles Rams): The 6’4”, 330-pound Robinson was originally drafted in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. After spending four seasons with the Lions, Robinson signed a free agent contract with the Rams in 2020. In seven NFL seasons, Robinson has played in 93 regular-season games with 61 starts, accruing 293 tackles, seven sacks, 17 pass defenses, one interception, five forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries. He started all 10 games he played in for the Rams in 2022 before missing the rest of the season with a torn meniscus in his knee. Robinson is a good run defender.

OC J.C. HASSENAUER (Unrestricted Free Agent from Pittsburgh Steelers): The 6’2”, 295-pound Hassenauer was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Atlanta Falcons after the 2018 NFL Draft. He was cut before the season started in 2018 and signed with the Steelers in April 2019, cut in August, and then re-signed in November. From 2020-2022, Hassenauer played in 45 regular-season games for the Steelers with seven starts, five at center and two at left guard. He also started one playoff game at center. Hassenauer is viewed mainly as a steady, reliable back-up.

TE TOMMY SWEENEY (Unrestricted Free Agent from Buffalo Bills): The 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.

CB AMANI ORUWARIYE (Unrestricted Free Agent from Detroit Lions): The 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.

WR JAMISON CROWDER (Unrestricted Free Agent from Buffalo Bills): The 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.

S BOBBY McCAIN (Cut by Washington Commanders): The Giants signed Bobby McCain as a free agent in March 2023 after he was cut by the Washington Commanders. The 5’11”, 192-pound McCain was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. After six seasons and 55 regular-season starts, the Dolphins cut him in May 2021 and McCain spent the next two seasons with the Commanders. McCain has started 32 of 34 regular-season games in Washington in 2021 and 2022. Last season, he finished with 54 tackles, five pass defenses, and one forced fumble. McCain has 11 career interceptions, four of which came in 2021.

CB LEONARD JOHNSON (Street Free Agent): The 6’0”, 190-pound Johnson tore his ACL while training in advance of the 2022 NFL Draft. He went undrafted and was not signed in 2022 due to the injury. Johnson is a physical press corner who needs work in coverage.

WR DARIUS SLAYTON (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): Slayton began the 2022 season as the team’s 7th wideout, barely making the 53-man roster. Due to the revolving door at the position, by the end of the season, he was entrenched as a starter. Slayton played in 16 regular-season games with 11 starts, catching 46 passes for a team-leading 724 yards (15.7 yards per catch) and two touchdowns. However, he also dropped seven passes, or nearly 10 percent of his opportunities. The Giants drafted Slayton in the 5th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he played in 14 games with nine starts, catching 48 passes for 740 yards and eight touchdowns. But Slayton has not really progressed since that impressive debut season, only catching seven total touchdown passes from 2020-2022, while also dropping 19 passes during that same timespan. Slayton combines decent size (6’1”, 194lbs) with very good overall athleticism and speed. Slayton can stretch the field and get deep. He can adjust well to the football, but his hands are very suspect, even being prone to double-clutching passes he does catch. Slayton is also not a very physical receiver and can have issues beating press coverage.

DL/OLB JIHAD WARD (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): The Giants signed Ward as an unrestricted free agent from the Jacksonville Jaguars in March 2022. Ward surprisingly became an important on-field and locker-room veteran presence for the rebuilding ball club. He played in all 17 regular-season games with 11 starts (58 percent of defensive snaps), finishing the year with 43 tackles, seven tackles for losses, three sacks, 13 quarterback hits, four pass defenses, and two forced fumbles. It was the most-productive season in Ward’s seven-year NFL career. The 6’5”, 287-pound Ward was originally drafted in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders. He has spent time with the Raiders (2016-2017), Dallas Cowboys (2018), Indianapolis Colts (2018-2019), Baltimore Ravens (2019-2020), and Jaguars (2021). Ward has played in 85 regular-season games with 26 starts. While not flashy pass-rush presence, Ward is a tough, gritty edge-setter against the run. He also also shift inside when called upon.

WR PARRIS CAMPBELL (Unrestricted Free Agent from Indianapolis Colts): The 6’1”, 208-pound Campbell was originally drafted in the 2nd round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Colts. He had an injury-plagued first three seasons in Indianapolis, missing extensive time in 2019 (sports hernia, broken hand, broken foot), 2020 (MCL and PCL knee injury), and 2021 (broken foot). From 2019-2021, he only played in 15 games, catching a total of 34 catches for 360 yards and two touchdowns. Campbell finally played in all 17 games in 2022 with 16 starts. He finished the year with 63 catches for 623 yards and three touchdowns. Campbell lacks ideal size, but he fast, quick receiver who can play multiple positions, including the slot.

WR JEFF SMITH (Unrestricted Free Agent from New York Jets): The 6’1”, 195-pound Smith was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Jets after the 2019 NFL Draft. In his four seasons with the Jets, Smith played in 36 regular-season games with seven starts, catching 34 passes for 426 yards an no touchdowns. Smith has served as a gunner on special teams.

ILB BOBBY OKEREKE (Unrestricted Free Agent from Indianapolis Colts): The 6’2”, 235-pound Okereke was originally drafted in the 3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Colts. In four seasons, Okereke played in 64 regular-season games with 49 starts. His best season was in 2022 when he started 16 regular-season games, finishing with 151 tackles, five pass defenses, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Okereke is a good athlete who can play the run and cover in the passing the game. Super productive, he was credited with 283 tackles the past two seasons.

NT RAKEEM NUNEZ-ROCHES (Unrestricted Free Agent from Tampa Bay Buccaneers): The 6’2”, 307-pound Nunez-Roches was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. He has spent time with the Chiefs (2015-2018), Indianapolis Colts (2018), and Buccaneers (2018-2022). Nunez-Roches has played in 102 regular-season games with 38 starts. His best season was in 2022 when he played in 17 regular-season games with 10 starts, accruing 33 tackles and two sacks. Nunez-Roches is a good run defender who rarely flashes as a pass rusher. Tough and a good locker room presence.

RB MATT BREIDA (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): The Giants signed Matt Breida as an unrestricted free agent from the Buffalo Bills in March 2022. He played in every game, with one start, and finished the season with 54 carries for 220 yards (4.1 yards per carry), and one touchdown. He also caught 20 passes for 118 yards. Breida was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the San Francisco 49ers after the 2017 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the 49ers (2017-2020), Miami Dolphins (2020), and Bills (2021). Breida has played in 81 regular-season games with 20 starts, rushing the ball 520 times for 2,501 yards (4.8 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns. He also has caught 103 passes for 847 yards and six touchdowns. Breida lacks size (5’10”, 195lbs), but he is a quick, elusive back with good speed. He can also catch the football.

OG WYATT DAVIS (Re-Signed Exclusive Rights Free Agent): The Giants claimed Wyatt Davis off of waivers from the Arizona Cardinals in late December 2022. The 6’4”, 315-pound Davis was originally selected in the 3rd round of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. Davis spent time on both the 53-man roster (6 games with no starts) and Practice Squad as a rookie. The Vikings waived him in late August 2022 and the Giants immediately signed him to their Practice Squad. However, a week later the New Orleans Saints signed Davis to their 53-man roster. The Saints waived him in November and he was claimed off of waivers by the Cardinals, who cut him in late December. In all, Davis has played in nine NFL games with no starts. His first real NFL action came in the Giants’ regular-season finale against the Eagles. He flashed with power in the running game.

LS CASEY KREITER (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): The Giants signed long snapper Casey Kreiter as an unrestricted free agent from the Denver Broncos in April 2020. He has been a steady performer in his three years with the team. Kreiter was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Dallas Cowboys after the 2014 NFL Draft. After spending two camps with the Cowboys, Kreiter made the Denver Broncos in 2016. He made the Pro Bowl for his performance in 2018.

P JAMIE GILLAN (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): Jamie Gillan became the new Giants’ punter in 2022 after signing a reserve/future contract in February 2022. Gillan played all 17 regular-season games and averaged 46.8 yards per punt (40.6 net). Those stats were 18th and 25th in the NFL, respectively. Twenty-six of his punts were downed inside the 20-yard line, or 35 percent of his punts (21st-best in the NFL). Nine of his punts resulted in touchbacks (tied for second-most in the NFL). He had one punt blocked. Gillan is Scottish born. He was originally signed by the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft. Gillan served as Cleveland’s punter for all of 2019 and 2020, as well as most of 2021. The Browns waived him in late December and he was then signed to the Practice Squad of the Buffalo Bills. In 61 regular-season games, Gillan has averaged 45.2 yards per punt (40.2 net yards per punt). Gillan has a strong leg, but is not a strong directional punter. He did improve the number of inside-the-20 punts and avoiding touchbacks as the season progressed.

WR STERLING SHEPARD (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): The Giants placed Sterling Shepard on Injured Reserve in late September 2022 after he tore the ACL in his left knee in Week 3. He finished the season with 13 catches for 154 yards and one touchdown. Shepard was selected in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Giants. Shepard started all 16 games in 2016 and 2018, but has now missed significant time due to injury in his five other seasons. He has never come close to cracking the 1,000-yard mark in a single season or duplicating his 8-touchdown season of his rookie campaign (he now has 22 career touchdowns). Shepard had a horrible season in 2021, culminating with a torn left Achilles’ tendon injury in mid-December. Before that, Shepard had already missed seven games with hamstring and quad injuries. He finished the year playing in seven games, catching just 36 passes for 366 yards and one touchdown. Shepard lacks ideal size and speed, but he is a fluid athlete with good quickness. Shepard runs good routes, is tough going over the middle, and adjusts well to the football. Shepard is not a consistent deep threat, but more of a move-the-chains underneath target who is ideally suited for the slot position. Good blocker.

LB JARRAD DAVIS (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): The Giants signed Jarrad Davis to the 53-man roster from the Practice Squad of the Detroit Lions in late December 2022. He was pressed into service immediately, starting the regular-season finale and the two playoff games at inside linebacker. In those three contests, he was credited with 18 tackles, one tackle for a loss, and two quarterback hits. Davis was originally drafted in the 1st round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Lions. He has spent time with the Lions (2017-2020, 2022) and New York Jets (2021). Davis has played in 68 regular-season games with 51 starts. He’s big, strong, fast, and physical. However, he lacks ideal lateral agility and the ability to diagnose complex running schemes. Davis will flash, but he is not consistent enough.

QB DANIEL JONES (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): After two disappointing seasons in 2020 and 2021, Daniel Jones rebounded in 2022 under the tutelage of new Head Coach Brian Daboll and Offensive Coordinator Mike Kafka, helping to lead the Giants to a surprising 9-7-1 regular-season record and a playoff victory. Daboll was the third head coach and Kafka the fourth offensive coordinator in Jones’ first four years with the team. For the first time as a pro, Jones did not miss a game due to injury. He started 16 regular-season games, being held out of the season finale as a healthy scratch, and finished the season completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,205 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He also set a franchise single-season record for quarterback rushing yards with 120 carries for 708 yards and seven touchdowns. Not only were the five interceptions a career-low, but so were his fumbles (six). The highlight of season was his 2-touchdown, 301-passing yard, and 78-rushing yard performance against the Vikings in a 31-24 playoff win. His improved play occurred despite a revolving door of subpar receivers to throw to and shaky pass protection. Nevertheless, questions remain about Jones’ upside and ability to elevate the team around him. He needs to throw for more touchdown passes, never coming close to the 24 he threw his rookie season. The Giants drafted Jones in the 1st round of the 2019 NFL Draft. After a promising rookie season, Jones struggled during the 2-year Joe Judge era, throwing just 21 touchdowns to 17 interceptions with a 9-16 record as a starter. He also missed two games due to hamstring and ankle injuries in 2020 and six games due to a neck injury in 2021. Jones has classic quarterback size and is a good athlete who can hurt teams with his feet. He has good but not great arm strength. Jones is competitive, smart, tough, and hard-working.

WR ISAIAH HODGINS (Re-Signed Exclusive Rights Free Agent): The Giants claimed Hodgins off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills in early November 2022. Due to the dearth of talent at the position, Hodgins quickly received playing time, playing in eight regular-season games with five starts. He finished with 33 catches for 351 yards (10.6 yards per catch) and four touchdowns. In the playoff game against the Vikings, Hodgins caught eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown. However, he was limited to one catch against the playoff loss to the Eagles.  Hodgins was originally drafted in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Bills. He spent most of his rookie season on Injured Reserve and most of 2021 on the Practice Squad. Before coming to the Giants, Hodgins only played in two regular-season games, catching four passes for 41 yards. Hodgins lacks ideal speed, but he has good size (6’3”, 201lbs), runs good routes, and became the steadiest, most-reliable receiver on the roster. The question moving forward is his upside.

OG JACK ANDERSON (Re-Signed Exclusive Rights Free Agent): The Giants claimed Jack Anderson off of waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles in late August 2022. He played in 12 regular-season games with two starts, one at left guard against the Cowboys and one at right guard against the Eagles. He was a bit shaky against these top two defensive lines. The 6’4”, 314-pound Anderson was originally drafted in the 7th round of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Bills. The Eagles signed Anderson off of Buffalo’s Practice Squad in September 2021. He played in two games with one start for Philadelphia. Anderson spent part of the 2021 season on Injured Reserve with a hamstring injury.

TE LAWRENCE CAGER (Re-Signed Exclusive Rights Free Agent): The Giants signed Lawrence Cager to the Practice Squad in October 2022 and the 53-man roster in November 2022. He ended up playing in six regular-season games with three starts, catching 13 passes for 118 yards and one touchdown. The 6’5”, 220-pound Cager was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the New York Jets after the 2020 NFL Draft. He has spent time with the Jets (2020-2021, 2022) and Cleveland Browns (2021). The Jets cut him in mid-October 2022. Cager has played in 10 regular-season games with five starts. A former collegiate wideout, Cager is a much better pass receiver than blocker. He has good overall athleticism and hands for the position.

2022 New York Giants Free Agent Signings


LB JAYLON SMITH (Re-Signed Unrestricted Free Agent): The Giants signed Smith to the Practice Squad and then 53-man roster in December 2021. He ended up playing in the last four games of the season with two starts (60 percent of the defensive snaps in those games), finishing with 18 tackles, one sack, and one pass defense. Smith was originally drafted in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys, who cut him during his fifth season in October 2021. He then spent a month with the Green Bay Packers before they cut him in early November 2021. Smith has played in 74 regular-season games with 58 starts. He made the Pro Bowl in 2019. Smith suffered serious knee injuries in college and his rookie season in the NFL that have impacted his game. He has decent size (6’2”, 240 pounds) and still flashes as a play-maker, but he is not a disciplined player who maintains gap integrity on a consistent enough basis against the run. Smith hits with a pop, but he is too much of a freelancer.
