The New York Giants have added several defensive players as undrafted free agents.

The New York Giants Tuesday announced the signings of four more undrafted free agents, and an obvious theme has emerged. All nine of the undrafted players the Giants have added since the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft have been on the defensive side of the ball.

The rookie free agents signed Tuesday are linebacker Dan Fox of Notre Dame, safety Charles Barnett of Ohio State, and defensive ends Emmanuel Dieke of Georgia Tech and Jordan Stanton of James Madison.

The Giants waived defensive back Chaz Powell.

Head coach Tom Coughlin indicated during a radio interview on Monday that the Giants would be adding 11 undrafted free agents, so two more signings could be forthcoming. Fox, 6-foot-3 and 233 pounds, led Notre Dame in tackles last season over 10 starts, while Barnett, 6-0 and 201 pounds, was one of five senior captains at Ohio State in 2013. Barnett closed his career with 45 games played as a Buckeye and 37 starts, totaling 224 career tackles and eight interceptions.

For the defensive ends, Dieke, 6-6 and 257 pounds, was a two-year starter at Georgia Tech, recording 72 tackles, 5.0 sacks, and two forced fumbles in 49 career games. And Stanton, 6-4 and 263 pounds, last year earned First Team All-CAA accolades after recording 56 tackles, 11.5 for loss, and 8.0 sacks, which was a team-best and tied for fifth in the conference.

The signings announced Monday by the Giants were defensive tackles Kelcy Quarles and Eathyn Manumaleuna of BYU, defensive end Kerry Wynn of Richmond, linebacker Justin Anderson of Louisiana-Lafayette and safety Thomas Gordon of Michigan.
