The Giants have shored up the depth of their defensive line rotation by agreeing to terms on a new deal with Kerry Wynn.
Wynn, a 27-year-old who's entering his fifth NFL season, will sign a one-year deal to return to the Giants, a source confirmed. He has been a solid rotational player for the Giants since they signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Richmond in 2014. He's even made 10 starts in the last three years.
He's never quite lived up to the pass-rushing potential he showed when he had 1 ½ sacks in five games as a rookie. In three years and 44 games since, he's only added another 1 ½ sacks to his total.
Still, the 6-foot-5, 264 pounder is versatile and has value, especially as the Giants begin to switch to a 3-4 scheme, which will put more of a strain on their defensive ends. If nothing else, he's a good player to put in when the Giants want to give Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon a breather. The Giants also have Romeo Okwara, Avery Moss, and Jordan Williams to compete at that spot.
Wynn was paid $1.97 million last season after re-signing with the Giants as a restricted free agent. He had drawn some interest from the Patriots before heading back to the Giants. It's not clear if he had any interest on the free-agent market this year, though his new one-year deal is not expected to pay him nearly as much.
