After focusing the early part of their free-agent effort on defense, the New York Giants on Monday added some blocking help on the offensive side of the ball. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, former Steelers H-back Will Johnson agreed on a two-year deal with the Giants.
The Giants have been looking to add depth to their offensive line, and it's conceivable that Farrell or Seymour could compete with John Jerry for the starting right guard spot in camp. But they also could end up as backups. Neither is a likely right tackle candidate, and the Giants continue to look for a starter at that spot.
Johnson, on the other hand, is someone for whom the Giants likely have plans. He can line up at fullback or as a blocking tight end, the latter of which the Giants really never had last season after Daniel Fells contracted a career-ending case of MRSA and had to endure multiple surgeries to save his life. Fullback (and occasional defensive tackle) Nikita Whitlock suffered a season-ending injury late in the season, but he is expected back and could face competition in camp from the versatile Johnson.
