The New York Giants haven't made any blockbuster moves in Free Agency -- yet. But that doesn't mean they've been asleep at the wheel.
The Giants have made five signings in the opening of the 2015 league year.
- Shane Vereen (RB) - The Giants' first move was to sign the dynamic pass catching back from New England to a 3 year, $12mil ($5mil guaranteed) deal. Vereen had a huge performance in the Superbowl and gives the Giants a weapon out of the backfield that they had been missing.
- Jonathan Casillas (LB/ST) - The Giants' second acquisition from New England, Casillas was added to bolster the Giants' woeful special teams, as well as add depth to their linebacking corp -- weakside in particular. The 28 year old Casillas was signed to a 3 year, $10.5 mil contract
- Dwayne Harris (WR/ST) - The Giants grab another Cowboy in Free Agency. Harris was signed to a 5 year, $17.5 mil ($7.1mil guaranteed) contract. The speedy Harris provides an instant boost to the Giants' special teams as both a gunner and a potential game-breaking return man. Pro Football Focus reports that Harris was second in the league in yards per route run, and he can also work out of the slot to provide insurance for Victor Cruz.
- Marshall Newhouse (OL) - Newhouse comes to the New York Giants to replace John Jerry and James Brewer as guard/tackle depth. Newhouse played well filling in for an injured Brian Bulaga before a poor stint in Cincinnati. He signed a deal for 2 years totaling $3.5mil.
- J.T. Thomas III (LB) - The Giants add versatile linebacker for 3 years, $12mil (4.5 guaranteed). Thomas has played strong side linebacker and stepped in to play the inside linebacker role for the Jaguars when Paul Posluszny landed on the injured reserve with a torn pectoral. Thomas is athletic, good in coverage and solid in run support.
