The New York Giants continued to address their offseason roster on Monday evening, signing both defensive end/linebacker Avery Moss and offensive lineman Chad Slade to reserve/futures contracts.
Moss, who was a fifth-round pick of the Giants in the 2017 NFL Draft, spent the entirety of last season on the team’s practice squad. During his rookie campaign, the 6-foot-3, 269-pound linebacker appeared in 11 games, recording 14 tackles (10 solo), one forced fumble and two passes defensed.
Meanwhile, Slade entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Auburn, initially signing with the Houston Texans, where he’d remain until joining the Giants.
The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Slade has appeared in five career games with three starts — one coming at tight end and two coming at right guard.
In total, the Giants have now signed 11 players to reserve/futures contracts. The entire list can be seen below:
