NFL: New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants have re-signed their center for next season. Center Brett Jones signed a one-year, $2.914 million franchise tender to stay with Big Blue for another year. Because Jones was a restricted free agent, the Giants would have received a second-round pick if he decided to sign with a different team.

Jones, 26, found a bigger role with the team last season with the injury to starting center Weston Richburg. He appeared in all 16 games for Big Blue, starting 13. That was way up from the season before, in which Jones played in 14 of the Giants games, only starting one of them.

Before coming to New York, Jones spent two seasons playing in the Canadian Football League for the Calgary Stampeders. He was picked in the second round of the 2013 CFL Draft after playing his college football in Canada at the University of Regina.

Jones looks to help a Giants offensive line that was ranked the 26th worst offensive line in football, according to Pro Football Focus.
