The Giants have now brought back both Pulley and Jon Halapio
The New York Giants continued to try and strengthen their offensive line Monday, reportedly reaching a three-year, $9.6 million deal with center Spencer Pulley.
Pulley’s agency quickly took to Twitter to confirm the deal.

The Giants on Friday announced the re-signing of Jon Halapio, an exclusive rights free agent who opened 2018 as the starting center. GM Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur often lamented Halapio’s loss, but Pulley did a nice job taking over midway through the season.
Acquired via a waiver claim at the beginning of the season, Pulley ended up starting nine games and was the middle man on a group that played better over the second half of the season. Pulley ranked 23rd out of 39 qualifying centers graded by Pro Football Focus.
Perhaps the Giants are setting up a center competition between Halapio and Pulley. Both have the ability to play guard if necessary, so one could be looked at as quality interior offensive line depth.
