The New York Giants officially signed G Adam Gettis and OT Michael Bowie to future/reserve contracts on Wednesday.
The Giants have now signed 12 players to futures deals including:
- CB Michael Hunter
- WR Darius Powe
- RB Jacob Huesman
- QB Keith Wenning
- DE Jordan Williams
- DE Stansly Maponga
- WR Kevin Norwood
- CB Donte Deayon
- S Ryan Murphy
- OL Jon Halapio
- G Adam Gettis
- OT Michael Bowie
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.
Gettis, 27, is a former fifth-round pick by the Redskins in the 2012 NFL Draft. He spent two seasons in Washington before signing on with the Raiders’ practice squad. The Giants decided to sign Gettis off Oakland’s practice squad in December of last year.
New York later made him one of their final roster cuts as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit but added him to their practice squad after clearing waivers. The Giants promoted him to their active roster towards the end of the year before re-signing him to their practice squad.
In 2015, Gettis appeared in one game for the Giants.
