The New York Giants did not completely take Friday off from doing something when it comes to 2015 NFL Free Agency. Friday evening the team announced it has re-signed offensive lineman John Jerry..

Jerry started all 16 games at right guard for the Giants after Chirs Snee retired and Geoff Schwartz suffered a preseason injury. Jerry is a five-year veteran who spent the first four years of his career with the Miami Dolphins, signing with the Giants after Miami parted ways with him due to his involvement in the Bully-gate scandal.

Jerry has started every game for the past three seasons, and has 61 starts in 73 career NFL games.

The 6-foot-5, 349-pounder will be 29 next season. He also has some experience playing tackle. The Giants most likely don't see Jerry as a starter in 2015, but his experience and ability to play multiple positions has to be attractive for the Giants, looking not only to upgrade the caliber of their starting group but to ensure that they have quality depth. If they do see Jerry as a starter he would stay at right guard, with Geoff Schwartz playing the left side. Weston Richburg is expected to be the center after the release of 2014 starter J.D. Walton.

Jerry had been reported to be visiting the Tennessee Titans earlier in the day. The Giants have now re-signed Jerry, and added swing tackle Marrshall Newhouse and Canadian Football League center Brett Jones.
