EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants have signed defensive back Courtney Brown, fullback Jerome Johnson and place-kicker Sam Swank to their roster for 2010.

The Giants announced the moves on Wednesday, the same day they fired defensive line coach Mike Waufle.

Brown, who was drafted as a cornerback and moved to safety, played in 17 games for the Dallas Cowboys in 2007 and 2008. He was waived prior to this season.

Johnson was signed by St. Louis as a free agent in April. He played linebacker at Nevada-Reno but was converted to a fullback by the Rams. He was waived in September.

Swank played in two preseason games for the Bengals, making all eight of his extra points and a 49-yard field goal. He was waived on Sept. 5.
