The New York Giants are now officially in offseason mode and general manager Dave Gettleman has wasted little time in preparing for 2019, handing out several reserve/futures deals on Black Monday.
The first to ink a reserve/futures deal was former Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens long snapper Taybor Pepper, who excitedly announced his signing via Twitter.
In addition to Pepper, the Giants also signed running back Robert Martin, offensive lineman Jylan Ware and cornerback Ronald Zamort to reserve/futures deals.
As the Giants continue to sign more players to such deals, we will update the blow tracker:
- Long snapper Taybor Pepper
- Running back Robert Martin
- Offensive lineman Jylan Ware
- Cornerback Ronald Zamort
- Defensive lineman Jake Ceresna (CFL)
Reserve/futures contracts amount to a team claiming the rights to a player who was either a free agent at the conclusion of the regular season or was on their practice squad. They count toward the 2019 90-man roster and are generally signed to league minimum deals. There is no limit to the number of reserve/futures signings a team can make.
