This may not be the splash signing that NY Giants fans have been hoping for, but general manager Joe Schoen has clearly heard the cries from the fanbase on adding depth for the secondary. That has arrived with a former Giant returning home to East Rutherford.

According to insider Jordan Schultz, the Giants are expected to sign safety Andrew Adams, who has spent the past four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Before joining the NFC South side, Adams started off his career with the G-Men, suiting up for NY for the 2016 and 2017 campaigns.

NY Giants signing Andrew Adams is an underrated moved

As we stated above, this isn’t the kind of blockbuster move that’s going to jack up the fanbase. However, it’s also not a signing that people should sleep on. Adams has plenty of experience, as he’s getting ready to enter his seventh pro season. While with the Bucs in 2021, Adams started three games and appeared in 14 contests.

During that time, the 5-11, 205-pounder posted his 24 tackles, four pass deflections and one interception. During his two seasons with New York, Adams recorded 80 tackles and one interception. Now, Adams will be back in East Rutherford hoping to make a splash with the team at training camp.

NY Giants worked out veteran tight end Eric Ebron

In another noteworthy move, the Giants reportedly also brought in veteran tight end Eric Ebron for a workout on Monday. It’s up in the air if Ebron will end up signing with the team, but Schoen and Co. clearly have some interest in the former first-round pick. Unfortunately for the Giants, news just dropped that Daniel Bellinger is dealing with a quad injury.

Because of this, he won’t be a full go to start off camp. With this, it could make plenty of sense for the Giants to sign Ebron to a new deal and see what he still has left in the tank in the coming weeks. If things go as planned, he could even sneak his way onto the 53-man roster as well. Ebron’s situation will be something to monitor closely.
