The New York Giants announced Thursday that they’ve signed CB Michael Hunter to a futures contract for the 2019 season.
As of now, the Giants have signed 12 players to futures deals including:
- LB Jonathan Anderson
- DE Jake Ceresna
- WR Brittan Golden
- DE Myles Humphrey
- RB Robert Martin
- LS Taybor Pepper
- OT Victor Salako
- OT Jylan Ware
- DB Ronald Zamort
- OL Chad Slade
- OLB Avery Moss
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Hunter, 25, wound up signing on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in 2016. He was on and off of their active roster last season and later returned to New York on a futures contract for the 2017 season.
Unfortunately, the Giants waived Hunter with an injury designation during the 2017 season and he was later waived with an injury settlement. Hunter had brief stints with the Jets, Broncos and Bills before signing on to the Texans’ practice squad last season.
In 2017, Hunter has appeared in four games but has yet to record a statistic.
