Rashad Jennings Signing: Running back to join New York Giants

Rashad Jennings - Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Rashad Jennings is the second big free-agent signing for the New York Giants, joining Geoff Schwartz.

Offensive guard Geoff Schwartz will have company on Wednesday when he flies to New Jersey to sign his new deal with the New York Giants. Running back Rashad Jennings will be joining him.

Jennings, who turns 29 later this month, carried 163 times for 733 yards (4.5 yards per carry) for the Oakland Raiders in 2013. The 163 carries was a career high, as were the 36 passes Jennings caught. Jennings has averaged 4.3 yards per carry throughout his career. The 2013 season was the first time in Jennings' career he was a lead back for any extended stretch of time, and he excelled.

The 6-foot-1, 235-pound Jennings will take over as the Giants' primary back. The move likely means the Giants will part ways with Andre Brown, also a free agent.

The Giants also re-signed Peyton Hillis to a two-year deal on Tuesday. They also have holdovers David Wilson and Michael Cox.
