The New York Giants announced Tuesday that they’ve signed LB Akeem Ayers and G John Greco to contracts and placed LB Keenan Robinson on injured reserve.

The Giants’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. OL Adam Bisnowaty

  5. G Ethan Cooper
  6. DB Brandon Dixon

Ayers, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2011. He was later traded to the Patriots in return for a 2015 sixth-round pick.

The Rams signed him to a two-year, $6 million contract with $2.75 million guaranteed back in March of 2015. However, he was cut loose by the team in September of last year.

The Colts signed Ayers to a contract just a few days after he was released, but elected to move on from.

Since being waived by Indianapolis, he has worked out for the Lions, Seahawks, Bears, Saints, Patriots, and Giants.

In 2016, Ayers appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded 21 total tackles, two sacks, one interception, and two pass defenses.

We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.

Greco, 32, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2008. After three years with the Rams, Greco signed on with the Browns and has spent the past six years in Cleveland.

Greco was entering the final year of a five-year, $13.2 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $975,000 this season when the Browns cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

The Saints signed Greco to a contract last month before recently cutting him loose.

In 2016, Greco appeared in 12 games for the Browns before being placed on the season-ending injured reserve.
