Giants Sign Free Agent DE Devin Taylor

ProFootballTalk reports that the Giants signed free agent DE Devin Taylor to a one-year deal.

The Giants were surprisingly the first reported interest in Taylor and brought him in for a visit earlier this week.

Taylor, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Lions back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $2,460,584 rookie contract with the Lions and has been testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career.

In 2016, Taylor appeared in all 16 games and recorded 28 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble, a safety and a pass defense for the Lions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 108 edge rusher out of 109 qualifying players.
