Giants sign former Colts starting center Khaled Holmes

With their season over and the focus now on 2017, the New York Giants have begun reshaping their roster. The latest addition was former Indianapolis Colts center Khaled Holmes, who was signed Wednesday to a reserve/futures deal.

Holmes, 26, started nine games for the Colts from 2013-15. Indianapolis once viewed him as its center of the future, but he lost the job on several occasions and never solidified his spot on the roster.

Holmes was with the Chicago Bears for part of last summer before being released. He spent the 2016 season out of football.

The Giants have made 16 moves since their season ended Jan. 8 with a loss in the wild-card round to the Green Bay Packers, including signing almost their entire practice squad to futures deals. In the past, this type of signing has found them players who have been able to contribute. Wide receiver Tavarres King signed a futures deal last year, and tight end Daniel Fells did so several years back.

So far in their short offseason, the Giants have signed the following players:

  • OT Michael Bowie

    CB Donte Deayon

    OL Adam Gettis

    LB Curtis Grant

    G Jon Halapio

    RB Jacob Huesman

    CB Michael Hunter

    DE Stansly Maponga

    S Ryan Murphy

    WR Kevin Norwood

    WR Darius Powe

    QB Keith Wenning

    G Martin Wallace

    DE Jordan Williams

    RB Daryl Virgies
