Guard John Jerry has agreed to a three-year deal worth up to $10 million -- with $4.25 million guaranteed -- to return to the New York Giants, a source told ESPN on Monday.
Jerry, 30, joined the Giants as a free agent after the 2014 season, and he fit in seamlessly and without incident in the locker room after his name surfaced in the Jonathan Martin bullying scandal in Miami. He has started 40 games for the Giants over the past three years, mostly at right guard.
The former Dolphins draft pick has started 85 career games in seven professional seasons.
Jerry started all 17 games for the Giants in 2016, including their wild-card round loss to the Packers. He took all but two offensive snaps in the regular season, allowing just two sacks, and finished with a solid Pro Football Focus grade (77.0) thanks to his usual strong pass-protection marks.
After a 2016 offseason that he called "career-changing" for his work at LeCharles Bentley's O-Line Performance, Jerry had one of his best seasons with an 84.1 pass-blocking grade and 61.9 as a run blocker.
