Giants sign OL Ryan Seymour, work out LB Kelvin Sheppard and two other linemen

New, comments

More news from the Giants' busy Monday as they sign an offensive lineman, work out two more, and a linebacker.

The New York Giants don't seem to have a case of the Mondays.

We already reported that the Giants signed former Pittsburgh Steelers fullback/H-back Will Johnson Monday afternoon. Now former Seahawks offensive lineman Ryan Seymour tweeted that he has signed with the Giants as well.

Seymour was drafted out of Vanderbilt in the seventh round of the 2013 draft by the Seattle Seahawks and was coached that year by new offensive line coach Mike Solari. The 26-year-old, 6-foot-4, 305-pound offensive lineman has played all five positions on the line.

The Giants also brought two other offensive linemen in for workouts, offensive tackles Byron Stingily and Ben Ijalana

Stingily was drafted in 2011 by the Tennessee Titans, and signed a two-year extension in March of 2015, but was one of the team's final roster cuts.

Ijalana was drafted by the Colts in the second round of 2011 draft by the Colts. He was later waived and claimed by the Jets.

Finally, Adam Schefter is reporting that the Giants brought former Miami Dolphins linebacker Kelvin Sheppard in for a workout.

Sheppard started 13 games for the Dolphins last season and was their starting middle linebacker coming out of training camp.

There has been no word yet if Sheppard was offered a contract by the team.

The Giants also signed another offensive lineman on Monday.

Farrell, a center, played eight games for the San Francisco 49ers in 2014.
