Giants To Sign Kevin Ogletree

6:52pm: To make room for Ogletree, the Giants officially placed cornerback Trumaine McBride on IR, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News (via Twitter).

6:17pm: The Giants will sign wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, a league source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk (on Twitter). The 27-year-old worked out for Big Blue earlier today.

The Giants were in need of depth following Victor Cruz‘s painful season-ending injury on Sunday night. Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. was quick to tell the salsa-dancing star that he’s ready to step up in his absence, but reinforcements were needed further down the depth chart. Ogletree had his best season in 2012 when he emerged with the Cowboys, hauling in 32 catches with four touchdowns.

Ogletree first made a name for himself in the NFL as a capable fill-in for Dez Bryant and Miles Austin when they were sidelined with injury. Now, he could have an opportunity to make an impact with the Giants as they forge ahead without Cruz.
