Giants Sign Zach Fulton

The Giants have signed guard Zach Fulton, per a club announcement. Details of the deal were not disclosed. 

Fulton was cut by the Texans, just before he was set to collect a $1MM bonus on March 22. The veteran was in set to enter the final season of a four-year, $28MM deal. Before his release, Fulton started in at least 13 games across his three Texans seasons. This past year, he was first-string for all 16.

Fulton didn’t set the world on fire in Houston, but the Giants see him as an experienced hand who can help to fortify their offensive line. Last year, Pro Football Focus had him tied as the No. 42 guard in the NFL last year — good enough for a starter. And, in 2019, PFF ranked him as one of the best pass-blocking guards in the league, though his weak run-blocking marks brought down his overall score.

The former Chiefs sixth-round pick should have an opportunity to make an impact in New York that Kevin Zeitler is out the picture.

    Another generic signing by Gettleman. Remember, if one of the worst teams in a league cuts a player, then his tank is a lot closer to E than F.

      This is a depth move. What’s wrong with having a quality veteran back up?

      Exactly, a depth move. ctyank who do you want? Not exactly huge talent names out there 10 days after free agency started. For a team with limited cap space they brought in Golladay, Jackson, Rudolph plus more depth. I would say they did pretty good.

    It’s a non factor if it works he’s a backup if not he doesn’t make the team. Getty did a good job, team is close to contending.
