The New York Giants have signed veteran offensive lineman Cameron leming to a one-year deal, per a variety of published reports. Mike Garafolo appears to have been first to report the signing.
Cam Fleming’s best seasons came in ‘16 and ‘17 with the Patriots, recording a 74 grade each of those years.— PFF NY Giants (@PFF_Giants) March 19, 2020
Last season he allowed 13 pressures on 154 pass blocking snaps at Left Tackle.
Fleming is the 3rd former Stanford player to sign with Giants this offseason.
Per Tom Pelissero, Fleming’s deal maxes out at $4 million.
A six-year veteran Fleming is familiar to new head coach Joe Judge and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. A 2014 fourth-round pick by the New England Patriots, Fleming was there for four seasons. Judge was special teams coach for the Patriots during that time.
Fleming spent the last two years playing for the Dallas Cowboys, where Garrett was head coach.
Fleming, who will be 28 next season, brings versatility to the Giants. He has played both guard and tackle. In six seasons, he has played 75 regular-season games with 26 starts.
Fleming was used almost exclusively at left tackle by Dallas. In 2017, he played 524 snaps at right tackle for New England.
As of now, it would look like Fleming would be a candidate to replace Mike Remmers at right tackle. If he doesn’t end up starting at one of the tackle positions, Fleming still gives the Giants something they did not have in 2019. That being a reliable veteran swing tackle.
