Giants signed NT Barry Cofield.
Cofield's agent announced the signing on Twitter. The veteran nose tackle previously played for the Giants from 2006 to 2010.

Free agent DT Barry Cofield worked out for the Giants.

On the street for 2015, Cofield appeared in just eight games for the Redskins last season. He spent the first five years of his career playing for Tom Coughlin, but now 31, Cofield probably wouldn't offer much if he was signed as depth.

The Colts worked out free agent NT Barry Cofield on Tuesday.

Cofield, 31, was dumped by the Redskins in February and hadn't drawn any previously-known interest before now. His body has fallen apart in recent years, requiring hip surgery and sports-hernia surgery. When healthy, Cofield was a very versatile lineman who played the run well and rushed the passer.

Free agent DT Barry Cofield (hip, ankle, abdomen) is expected to be ready to play in 4-6 weeks.

Cofield has attracted no known interest on the open market since the Redskins dumped him in February. That's because he's 31, is coming off a torn labrum and missed eight games last year. Still, Cofield should eventually get a look as a versatile tackle that can both defend the run and push the pocket.

Free agent DT Barry Cofield (hip, ankle, abdomen) said he's 100 percent healthy.

Cofield said he's simply waiting for a call. His body may not be able to take much more, though. Cofield missed a bunch of time last season with a high-ankle sprain and double sports hernia surgery. He also required offseason surgery for a torn labrum in his hip. Cofield turned 31 this past March.

Free agent DL Barry Cofield recently underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

Cofield's body may be letting him down at age 31, as he also missed much of 2014 with a severe high ankle sprain and underwent a double sports hernia procedure. Cofield hopes to be "up and running" again by June. If Cofield can get healthy, he is very much capable of helping a team in a rotation.

Redskins released NT Barry Cofield.

The move saves Washington $4 million in cap space. Cofield enters a strong interior defensive line class in free agency, but should generate a healthy amount of interest. He missed much of last season with a severe high ankle sprain, but is still only 31 years old (in mid-March), and capable as both a pocket pusher and run stopper. He can play multiple positions on the line.
Fri, Feb 27, 2015 01:34:00 PM

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim thinks NT Barry Cofield may have to take a pay cut.

After the signing of DL Ricky Jean-Francois, the Redskins have a lot of veterans up front, which also includes Jason Hatcher, Chris Baker, Kedric Golston, and Stephen Bowen. Bowen and Golston should be easy releases for Washington, and Cofield may join them. Cofield carries a $7.678 million cap number. The Redskins could save over $4 million by cutting the soon-to-be 31-year-old.
Fri, Feb 27, 2015 08:39:00 AM

Redskins activated NT Barry Cofield (ankle) from injured reserve/designated for return.

DE Jackson Jeffcoat was waived in a corresponding roster move. Cofield suffered a severe high-ankle sprain in Week 1. He'll return to the starting nose tackle spot, where Chris Baker has been filling in the past two months. Baker should go back to rotating along the Redskins' 3-4 defensive front.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 04:02:00 PM

Redskins placed NT Barry Cofield (ankle) on injured reserve/designed to return.

Cofield sustained a high ankle sprain during Sunday's loss at Houston. The Redskins will have to go with Chris Baker at nose tackle and Jarvis Jenkins at left end, a downgrade for a run defense that played reasonably well in Week 1. Cofield will be eligible to return in eight weeks.
Tue, Sep 9, 2014 12:46:00 PM

Redskins NT Barry Cofield has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

Cofield could be sidelined the better part of a month, if not longer. Chris Baker will slide in at the nose. Cofield is not a star player, but his loss further weakens an already thin defense.
Mon, Sep 8, 2014 03:15:00 PM

Redskins NT Barry Cofield left Sunday's Week 1 game against the Texans with an ankle injury and will not return.

Cofield, the Redskins' starter at the nose in their 3-4, went down in the first half. The extent of his injury is unknown.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 02:48:00 PM

Redskins NT Barry Cofield (sports hernia) said he will "for sure" be ready when Washington opens training camp in late July.

Sports-hernia surgery recovery is typically 1-2 months, leaving Cofield with plenty of time to get ready for camp. Cofield is a plus pass rusher that has struggled against the run throughout his career, which makes him better suited to play defensive end in Washington's 3-4. The Redskins played him at nose last season, however, and it looks like that will be his position in 2014 as well.
Sat, May 31, 2014 02:03:00 PM

Redskins NT Barry Cofield is sitting out OTAs after undergoing sports-hernia surgery earlier this offseason.

Recovery time is typically 1-2 months, so Cofield should be ready in plenty of time for training camp. Cofield was a top-five pass-rushing defensive tackle at Pro Football Focus last season, but struggled badly against the run, grading out in the bottom eight. He's missed one game and two starts in eight seasons. Cofield will be flanked by DEs Jason Hatcher and Jarvis Jenkins in 2014.
Wed, May 28, 2014 04:56:00 PM

Redskins NT Barry Cofield is expected to play with an "enormous cast" on his right hand in Monday night's game against the Eagles.

Cofield broke his hand during the preseason. He says it won't affect his performance, but he can't even buckle his own chinstrap. It can't be bad news for LeSean McCoy and Michael Vick. The over/under for this game is 51.5, the second-highest total on the board this week. Only Sunday's Falcons at Saints game is projected to feature more points.
