The New York Giants are reportedly signing former Arizona Cardinals defensive end Markus Golden to a one-year deal.

On a Thursday filled with signings for Big Blue, Golden comes in on a one-year deal as the Giants try to fill the need at pass rusher.

The news was first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network and confirmed by Art Stapleton of The Record.

The Giants were one of the top teams linked to Golden over the past few days as the veteran edge rusher will reunite with his former defensive coordinator in James Bettcher.

Golden has had success working in Bettcher’s system when the two were together in Arizona. He’s more of a natural fit as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment, which is what Bettcher technically ran during his first season as Big Blue’s defensive coordinator.

Golden had 12.5 sacks with the Cardinals in 2016, leading the team in that department. But he tore his ACL in 2017 and recorded just 2.5 sacks in 2018 when Arizona converted to a 4-3 defense.

The Giants haven’t been afraid to spend in the early portion of free agency, and Golden projects to be a nice fit for Bettcher’s defense.
