New York Giants Roster: Dave Tollefson Signing Officially Announced

The news that defensive end Dave Tollefson, a well-liked and useful veteran on both defense and special teams, would be re-joining the New York Giants broke on Friday. The team officially announced the move today.

Tollefson, 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, has played in 47 games for the Giants. He has 48 tackles (23 solo), 5.0 sacks, three passes defensed and 28 special teams tackles in his career. Tollefson first joined the Giants on Oct. 2, 2007, when he was signed off the Oakland Raiders' practice squad.

The Tollefson addition gives the Giants some needed depth at defensive end with the Osi Umenyiora situation still unresolved and with Mathias Kiwanuka taking reps as the starting strong-side linebacker. Jason Pierre-Paul has been starting at right end in Umenyiora's absence, but if Umenyiora is not going to be part of the team and Kiwanuka is going to be playing a large portion of the time at linebacker there are definitely snaps for Tollefson.
