The Giants are not done adding more free agents to bolster their 2018 roster. Add OLB Connor Barwin to the depth charts.
Barwin announced he signed a deal with the Giants via Twitter on Monday, adding more depth to the linebacker position this season.
I'm excited to announce I've agreed to terms with the New York Football Giants. Let's go G-Men! #GiantsPride- Connor Barwin (@ConnorBarwin98) July 23, 2018
At 31, Barwin has played for three different teams in his NFL career, the latest being the Rams last season. He totaled five sacks and 26 combined tackles over 14 games (13 starts).
Barwin is also very familiar with the NFC East as he played for the Eagles from 2013-2016. In 2014, he had his best season of his career with 14.5 sacks and two forced fumbles, which earned him a trip to the Pro Bowl.
Also, Giants LB coach Bill McGovern worked alongside Barwin during their time together in Philly.
Barwin will be thrown into DC James Bettcher's 3-4 scheme, which he should work well in given his ability to rush the passer and drop back into coverage if need be. Off the field, his veteran presence is another addition to a Giants locker room culture that is looking to clean itself up after some bad blood last season.
With camp kicking off on Thursday, Barwin will be right in the mix as position battles begin.
