The new York giants announced a trio of free agent signings on Tuesday evening, adding tight end Cole Hikutini and defensive backs Joshua Kalu and Chris Milton.

Hikutini is a 6-foot-4, 240-pound 26-year-old. His only NFL game experience came in 2017 when he played in four games with the San Francisco 49ers. Hikutini has also been with the Minnesota Vikings (2018-19), and Dallas Cowboys (2019-21), who released him earlier this month.

Kalu and Milton are both veteran players who have spent time with the Tennessee Titans. They join Logan Ryan and the recently-signed Adoree Jackson as former Titans who are now part of the Giants secondary.

Kalu, 25, played in 28 games over three seasons with Tennessee. He did not start any of those games, Kalu was heavily used on special teams. In 2020, he played 281 special teams snaps (63 percent).

Milton, 28, is a five-year NFL veteran. He spent three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and the last two with Tennessee. He has played in 55 NFL games with only one start. Milton is also an experienced special teams player, with an even 1,000 special teams snaps played over his five years in the league.
