Art Stapleton confirms the news and adds that the Giants intend to sign Gano, assuming everything checks out.
Gano, 33, originally signed on with Washington as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State back in 2009. He spent three years in Washington before signing on with the Panthers for the 2012 season.
Gano played out the final year of his four-year, $12.4 million contract before agreeing to a four-year, $17 million contract with $9 million guaranteed with the Panthers in 2018. Carolina opted to release him last month.
In 2018, Gano converted 14 of 16 field goal attempts (87.5 percent) to go along with 30 of 33 extra point tries (90.9 percent).
