Giants Sign DL Olsen Pierre

The Giants have signed defensive lineman Olsen Pierre, the club announced today.

Pierre, like new Giants safety Antoine Bethea, will offer New York familiarity with defensive coordinator James Bettcher‘s scheme, as Bettcher coached Pierre in Arizona in 2017. A Miami product, Pierre posted 5.5 sacks and nine quarterbacks in his year under Bettcher. Last season, his production dipped before he was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury in December.

Pierre will play five-technique defensive end in Bettcher’s 3-4 scheme. The Giants are currently projected to start Dalvin Tomlinson and R.J. McIntosh in those spots, and given that both played relatively well in 2018, Pierre may slot in as a reserve.

    Just because they are familiar with a former Cardinal or Panther. Does not make them better. Last year they picked up some real winners!

    I just don’t get it. It’s either a cardinal or panther. Ridiculous. I get the cards players are familiar with Bettcher but come on, here has to better players out there on the cheap.
