Giants Sign DE Ifeadi Odenigbo To One-Year Deal


The New York Giants have signed former Vikings DE Ifeadi Odenigbo to a one-year contract on Wednesday, according to his agency. 

Tom Pelissero reports that Odenigbo receives a one-year contract worth $2.5 million. 

Odenigbo, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to the Vikings’ practice squad.

Minnesota brought him back on a futures contract only to waive him during the 2018 season. Odenigbo wound up being claimed by the Browns and later had a brief stint with the Cardinals before returning to the Vikings. 

The Vikings declined to tender Odenigbo a contract as a restricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2020, Odenigbo appeared in 15 games for the Vikings and recorded 35 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2021 Free Agents list.
