Giants re-signed restricted free agent WLB Spencer Paysinger to a one-year, $1.431 million contract.
Paysinger, 26 in June, started ten games last season, recording 74 tackles and a sack. He isn't particularly effective in run or pass defense, and would likely serve best in a fourth linebacker role. Expect Paysinger to face competition from Jameel McClain in training camp. Paysinger will be a free agent in 2015. Mar 17 - 4:52 PM

Giants extended the "original pick" tender to restricted free agent WLB Spencer Paysinger, and tendered exclusive rights free agent C/G Dallas Reynolds.

Paysinger's "right of first refusal" tender is worth $1.431 million. He played 707 snaps for New York last season and was arguably the second best linebacker on the roster. Reynolds' ERFA tender is worth $570,000.

Spencer Paysinger and Jacquian Williams are expected to compete for the Giants' starting weak-side linebacker job.

This duo showed enough over the final three games of the season to let the Giants feel comfortable cutting Michael Boley Tuesday. It's a position battle for IDP owners to watch as Boley was able to average 6.2 tackles per game during his four-year run manning the weak side of Giants' 4-3 scheme.

Giants undrafted rookie LB Spencer Paysinger has been sprinkled in with the first-team defense in training camp.

Paysinger, who played college ball at Oregon, is shaping up as a good bet to make the roster as one of the first outside linebackers off the bench. "He's been all around," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He's been very good in special teams."
