New York Giants' news, 3/22: John Jerry signing, more news

John Jerry

New York Giants' headlines for Saturday, 3/22

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! In case you missed it while you were out and about on Friday night, the Giants Friday night signed former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman John Jerry, implicated in the Jonathan Martin bullying scandal, to a one-year contract. Our coverage included:

Jordan Ranaan of NJ.com offers even more details from the Wells Report.

ESPN's Dan Graziano says the signing of Jerry, and the Giants' flurry of free-agent activity in general, is a sign of recognition by the Giants that "Theirs was a roster in such an extensive state of disrepair that they had to go out and apply as many free-agent band-aids as possible. No way the draft was going to fix all of their immediate needs. No one has enough picks for that."

Walter Football, ignoring the baggage Jerry lugs along with him, loves this signing by the Giants:

This is a steal. John Jerry hasn't played as well as he's capable of the past couple of seasons because he was a poor fit for Miami's new blocking scheme. He's a talented guard, however, so there's definitely a good chance that he'll shine in his new home.
