Patriots signed DT Markus Kuhn, formerly of the Giants.
The Pats continue to add options along their defensive line. A 2012 seventh-rounder, Kuhn survived four years on the Giants' 53-man roster, but will have to earn his Patriots spot in camp. If he makes the team, it will likely be as the Pats' last interior lineman. Thu, Apr 7, 2016 04:55:00 PM

Giants placed DT Markus Kuhn on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Giants also placed LB James Morris on I.R. Kuhn played 320 snaps in 10 games (nine starts) before going down, rating negatively in PFF's run grades. Matt LaCosse and DE Brad Bars were promoted from the practice squad in corresponding moves.

Giants DL coach Robert Nunn has been "very impressed" with DT Markus Kuhn.

Kuhn mixed in with the first team during OTAs, with Cullen Jenkins getting snaps on the outside in run packages. After grading as one of the worst defensive tackles in the league, Kuhn isn’t guaranteed a roster spot. 29-year-old Kuhn is entering a make-or-break season.

Giants placed DT Markus Kuhn (knee) on the reserve/PUP list.

Kuhn is still working his way back from last November's torn ACL. He'll miss at least the first six weeks of the season. Kuhn is purely a depth player.

Giants DT Markus Kuhn (torn ACL) is out for the season.

He's been placed on injured reserve. Kuhn got his knee twisted the wrong way during Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The seventh-round rookie had been valuable depth in the interior as the Giants dealt with injuries to Chris Canty, Rocky Bernard and Marvin Austin. Kuhn's season ends with eight tackles in 10 games.

The Giants believe DL Markus Kuhn's knee injury is a torn ACL.

That, of course, would knock the seventh-round pick out for the season. A German-born NC State grad, Kuhn will turn 27 in May, and will be up against it to be ready in time for camp. A rotational lineman, his 2013 roster spot is far from assured. Kuhn will finish the season with eight tackles and zero sacks in fewer than 200 snaps.

Giants DL Markus Kuhn was forced from Sunday's game against the Bengals with a knee injury, and will not return.

The seventh-round pick was carted to the locker room for X-rays. A rotational lineman, Kuhn played 166 snaps through the Giants' first nine games.

German-born seventh-round DL Markus Kuhn can't participate in Giants OTAs until he obtains a work visa.

Kuhn played college ball at NC State, but isn't an American citizen. "This just takes a little bit with bureaucracy," Kuhn said. "It should come in any day, but until then we have to wait because I can't work." Kuhn is allowed to participate in the classroom portions of practice. He should have his visa long before camp.

Giants seventh-round DL Markus Kuhn is missing rookie camp with a right leg injury.

Kuhn cut himself on a knife that was sticking out of a box while helping a friend move. The 26-year-old German native recently became the third European-trained player drafted by an NFL team.
Sat, May 12, 2012 09:20:00 PM

Giants signed No. 239 overall pick DL Markus Kuhn to a four-year contract.

Kuhn switched from outside linebacker and defensive end to defensive tackle as a senior at N.C. State, posting a career-high 50 tackles and 4.5 sacks. An above average athlete, Kuhn is still new to the game as a 26-year-old native German. He'll have his hands full vying for a roster spot on perhaps the game's deepest defensive line.
Fri, May 11, 2012 11:59:00 AM

Giants selected NC State DL Markus Kuhn with the No. 239 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A feisty interior defensive linemen, Kuhn has a high motor but limited from a skills standpoint. An underrated athlete, at the Combine he ran a 4.89 forty with 28 bench press reps and a 34.5-inch vertical jump. With only one year of actual playing time, Kuhn registered four and a half sacks and nine tackles for loss. He'll have to disrupt and penetrate from the inside to get on the field.
