Giants add an inside linebacker
As we continue to wait and see if the New York Giants will sign wide receiver Kenny Golladay, they’ve made another move in free agency.
Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network is reporting that the Giants have signed linebacker Reggie Ragland to a one-year contract.
Ragland is an inside linebacker that will likely come in to compete for a starting job or at least be used in certain defensive packages. The one-year deal will allow him to try and improve his value in the market next offseason in hopes of making even more money
I would say that heading into next season, unless the Giants bring in another middle linebacker, I would expect Ragland to start because his only competition is Tae Crowder and Cale Garrett and T.J. Brunson.
The 27 year-old Ragland was a second round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills in 2016 out of the University of Alabama and has also played for the Kansas City Chiefs (2017-19) and Detroit Lions (2020).
Ragland has accumulated a total of 212 tackles, two forced fumbles, one interception and 3.5 sacks so far in his career.
