The New York Giants have re-signed tight end Ryan O’Malley to a one year contract.
O’Malley was originally signed by the Oakland Raiders in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Penn. He was on and off their practice squad until being signed by the Giants in 2017 amid an injury-ravaged season. He made his only NFL appearance in the Giants’ season finale against the Washington Redskins.
The Giants opted to not sign O’Malley to a tender after last season, making him an unrestricted free agent.
He has been working out with Giants’ quarterback Davis Webb in the off-season.

O’Malley rejoins the Giants’ tight end depth chart which features sophomore Evan Engram (who has also been training with Webb), 2017 free agent addition Rhett Ellison, and 2016 draftee Jerell Adams.
While Engram and Adams are highly athletic tight ends who should present match-up problems, the 6-foot-6, 265-pound O’Malley provides depth behind Ellison as a blocking tight end and secondary target for the offense.
