The New York Giants defensive secondary got a bit deeper Friday afternoon. They announced that they have signed their second defensive back of free agency in Curtis Riley.
Officially signed my papers to be a Giant!!!!— Boobie Miles (@curtis35riley) March 16, 2018
Riley, a native of White Plains, N.Y., was signed by the Tennessee Titans in 2015 as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State. He spent the last three years with the Titans, playing in seven games in 2017, recording 12 tackles and an interception.
At just 25 years old, with a 6-foot, 205-pound frame, Riley offers intriguing athletic upside. The hope is likely that Riley will grow to provide versatility in the defensive secondary while being a special teams contributor.
The belief coming out of college was that Riley needed time to hone his skills. The Giants are betting that he put in the work to do so at Tennessee and is ready to blossom as a low-cost steal back home in New York.
