Giants finally get a pass rusher, just not a star
We’ve been waiting for the New York Giants to possibly sign an edge rusher after missing out on Leonard Floyd. Now they’ve finally made a move, but it is a small one.
The Giants have signed Ifeadi Odenigbo, formerly of the Minnesota Vikings, according to the agency that represents him, Team IFA.
Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network says Odenigbo’s contract is for one-year, $2.5 million.
Odenigbo will be turning 27 years-old in April and was taken in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Vikings out of Northwestern University. He was born in Bayonne, New Jersey, but went to high school in Ohio. He also played for the Arizona Cardinals in 2018.
Odenigbo has 10.5 sacks over the past two seasons. Seven in 2019 and 3.5 in 2020. He actually sacked Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones in 2019. He’s clearly signing a one-year deal in hopes of proving himself and cashing in next offseason.
I have a feeling the Giants aren’t done adding edge rushers. Stay tuned.
