Dan Graziano of ESPN is reporting that the Giants are signing veteran OL Adam Snyder to a contract Wednesday.
Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports previously reported that the Giants were “working to sign” Snyder, so this news isn’t a huge surprise.
Snyder was one of the more notable players released by the 49ers this past weekend as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.
New York will be without free agent acquisition Geoff Schwartz for a portion of the season, so it would make a good deal of sense to bring some depth in the event they lose another lineman to an injury.
Graziano wonders if this move could be an indication that the Giants will be placing Schwartz on injured reserve with the designation to return.
Snyder, 32, appeared in all 16 games for San Francisco, so it’s interesting to see them part ways with an interior offensive lineman.
According to Pro Football Focus, Snyder played 345 snaps last season, but was rated as the No. 40 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
