Giants adding a veteran offensive lineman
Update: The Giants signing Fulton is now official.
Original: I really didn’t expect the New York Giants to add an offensive guard until next month’s draft, but I’m clearly wrong.
Paul Dottino of 660 WFAN in New York says that the Giants have agreed to terms with former Houston Texans offensive guard Zach Fulton.
The 29 year-old Fulton was a sixth round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2014 and played for them from 2014-2017. He has spent the last few years with the Texans and played his college ball at the University of Tennessee.
Fulton started all 16 games for the Texans in 2020 and started 15 games for them in 2019. He has been a full-time starter since his rookie season with the Chiefs. He can player either guard position as well as center.
When looking at the PFF grades for Zeitler and Fulton, essentially swapping one player out for another is a no-brainer for the Giants because they will save a lot of money. Even though we don’t know what Fulton’s salary is yet, it’s likely not much given the Giants don’t have a lot of cap space left.
