Giants Make More Moves. Sign Another Tight End


As we noted earlier last week the Giants had signed some players from their practice squad  to futures contracts.  The moves continued  as the Giants signed Veteran Guard Chris White.  White who was in the Giants training camp last year has played 33 games in his 7 year NFL stint.  Most recently with the Houston Texans, he also played in Seattle and for the Green Bay Packers.

Along with White the Giants signed Defensive End Craig Marshall, a former teammate of Jason Pierre Paul at USF, and Ryan Purvis a Tight End.  With Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum injured in Super Bowl 46, look for the Giants to stock up at the Tight End position as they look for a long term solution.  Purvis played for Tampa Bay in 2010 and had 5 receptions for 38 yards, three of them for first downs.  Purvis comes from Boston College, a school with which the Giants and Coach Coughlin have very close ties.
