From Rotoworld: Connor, 28, was released by the Giants with an injury settlement last week. He'll provide middle linebacker depth behind Luke Kuechly. Connor was a third-round pick by the Panthers in 2008 and returns after spending the first four years of his career in Carolina.
Good for Connor. His stint here didn't work out here because of neck 'burners' ?and he lost in roster roulette. In effect, this ends up actually being a swap of Connor for Jon Beason, which is a considerable upgrade for the Giants, I'd say.
