WEDNESDAY, 9:44pm: The Giants announced that Newhouse’s signing is official, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News tweets.
TUESDAY, 4:55pm: The two-year deal will be worth $3.25MM, according to Caplan (via Twitter).
4:06pm: Following inconsistent 2014 performances from much of their offensive line, the Giants will reportedly be adding some reinforcement. ESPN’s Adam Caplan reports (via Twitter) that the G-Man have signed offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse to a two-year deal.
The former fifth-rounder spent the first four seasons of his career with the Packers, and he joined the Bengals on a one-year deal prior to the 2014 season. The 26-year-old made 15 appearances and five starts for Cincinnati, compiling 373 snaps. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) wasn’t overly impressed with his performance last season, as they ranked him 61st among 84 offensive tackle candidates. However, three contributing members of the Giants offensive line – Weston Richburg, John Jerry and J.D. Walton – finished with lower ratings.
