According to multiple reports the New York Giants have re-signed Kevin Ogletree. The Giants showed some urgency not allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent on March 10th. He was signed in the aftermath of the Victor Cruz injury in 2014. He was not a very productive receiver in his short time in New York, only having 5 receptions for 50 yards.

Ogletree was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2009. In 2012 he was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a free agent.
He only played in 4 games for the Buccaneers before being released to make room for another player on the team. Ogletree signed with the Detroit Lions in October of 2013.
Ogletree is a veteran receiver who knows that football is a business all too well. The journeyman wide receiver hopes to compete with Rueben Randle for the third receiver slot on the Giants depth chart. When called upon Ogletree can be counted on. In his career he has 83 receptions for 1,049 yards and 6 touchdowns.
This is definitely an under the radar move by the Giants, but it is a small one year investment in a player they are familiar with. The Giants are in the stage of the offseason where they’re re-signing their own players. Ogletree is an affordable player that will give the Giants some depth at the wide receiver position and will possibly make an important impact on the field.
