Giants sign TE Daniel Coats

Well, that was quick.

After losing Ben Patrick to retirement on Saturday night, the Giants signed tight end Daniel Coats, the team announced Sunday.

Coats, a four-year veteran, has 30 career catches for 291 yards. The 27-year-old formerly played with the Cincinnati Bengals, and, most recently, the Denver Broncos.

He played 10 games last season, but hasn't caught a pass since 2009.
