NFL suspended Giants DE Josh Mauro four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs.

He signed with the Giants earlier this week. In a statement, Mauro said the positive test was triggered by a pre-workout supplement he bought over the counter. The 27-year-old logged 22 tackles and one sack over 333 defensive snaps for Arizona last season.
Mar 23 - 3:49 PM

Giants signed DE Josh Mauro, formerly of the Cardinals.

A 2014 UDFA out of Stanford, Mauro played for new Giants DC James Bettcher in Arizona. He's a rotational piece for early downs against the run.
Mar 19 - 6:13 PM

Giants signed WR Cody Latimer, formerly of the Broncos.

The 56th pick in the 2014 draft, Latimer caught just 35 passes across four seasons in Denver. He set career highs across the board with a 19/287/2 receiving line last season. Latimer has been a bust to date, but he's still only 25 years old and worth a flier for a Giants team that figures to cut Brandon Marshall soon.
Mar 19 - 2:50 PM

Giants signed CB B.W. Webb, formerly of the Browns.

The 28-year-old will compete for a depth/special teams role in New York.
Mar 19 - 1:58 PM

Giants re-signed DE Kerry Wynn to a one-year contract.

Wynn drew three starts last year, but he was a rarely used backup for most of the season. He will compete for a rotational role in camp.
Mar 19 - 10:21 AM

Free agent DE Josh Mauro will visit the Giants.

Mauro played for new Giants DC James Bettcher in Arizona. A five-technique defensive end, Mauro would be best utilized in a rotation with the Giants, who are short on five techniques. Mauro has made 26 starts across four seasons.
Mar 18 - 4:29 PM

Alec Ogletree has agreed to a contract restructure.

Ogletree was due a $7 million roster bonus on Friday, which will now be spread out over the next four years. The restructure reduces Ogletree's cap hit from $10 million to $4.75 million in 2018. The former first-round pick was acquired from the Rams in a trade earlier this month.
Mar 16 - 3:21 PM

After the signing of LT Nate Solder, the Giants told Ereck Flowers he will now "compete" for the job at right tackle.

Getting Flowers off left tackle was Plans A, B, and C for the Giants this offseason, and they made it happen by making Solder the highest-paid tackle in the league. Flowers, the No. 9 overall pick in 2015, has been nothing short of a mega-bust. As it stands, he'll be competing with holdovers Chad Wheeler and Adam Bisnowaty. The Giants surely aren't finished addressing their line.
Mar 15 - 10:48 PM

Giants signed OG Patrick Omameh, formerly of the Jaguars.

Omameh struggled mightily as the Jaguars' starting left guard last season, and the Jags replaced him immediately in free agency with Andrew Norwell. So the Giants are picking up the Jaguars' scraps.
Mar 14 - 9:10 PM

Giants signed CB/ST Teddy Williams, formerly of the Panthers.

A career special teams gunner, Williams turns 30 in July.
Mar 14 - 4:44 PM

Giants signed LT Nate Solder, formerly of the Patriots, to a four-year, $62 million contract.

The contract includes $35 million guaranteed and makes Solder the highest-paid tackle in football. Solder also drew heavy interest from the Broncos, Browns, Texans and of course, his old team, the Patriots. The 29-year-old has never received any All-Pro recognition or even gone to a Pro Bowl, but he's a solid veteran starter and should be a huge upgrade on draft bust Ereck Flowers at left tackle. Back in Foxboro, Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle are the leading in-house candidates to replace Solder on Tom Brady's blind side.
Mar 14 - 10:45 AM

Giants signed OLB Kareem Martin, formerly of the Cardinals, to a three-year, $21 million contract.

The deal includes $7.5 million in guaranteed money. A 2014 third-rounder, Martin never really got off the ground in Arizona but did see his role grow as last season went on, playing 457 defensive snaps. He'll rejoin DC James Bettcher in New York as a rotational piece.
Mar 14 - 10:18 AM

Giants tendered restricted free agent C Brett Jones at the second-round level.

It's worth $2.914 million. A CFL transplant, Jones started the final 13 games at center last season, receiving plus marks from Pro Football Focus for his pass blocking but horrendous grades in the run game. The Giants were expected to hammer offensive line in free agency but whiffed on Andrew Norwell.
Mar 13 - 11:36 PM

Giants signed RB Jonathan Stewart, formerly of the Panthers, to a two-year, $6.9 million contract.

The deal comes with $2.95 million in guaranteed money. He also visited the Seahawks and Lions on his free agent tour. Stewart will be reuniting with former Panthers GM Dave Gettleman as well as OC Mike Shula in East Rutherford. J-Stew has shown his age by averaging just 3.62 yards per carry over his last two seasons, though he's also contributed 16 touchdowns during that span. The 30-year-old is little more than a committee back at this stage of his career. The addition of Stewart shouldn't have any bearing on whether the Giants draft Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, assuming he's available with the No. 2 pick.
Mar 13 - 5:41 PM

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports the Giants are interested in free agent LT Nate Solder.

New York had its heart set on Andrew Norwell, but he signed with Jacksonville. Solder wouldn't be a bad consolation prize, though the Giants will face plenty of competition for his services. In addition to the Giants, Solder is also being pursued by the Browns, Broncos, Texans and of course, the team he's spent his entire career with, the New England Patriots.
