With middle linebacker Jon Beason out at least through training camp due to a broken foot, the New York Giants needed to bolster their roster at linebacker. To that end, they have announced the signing of linebacker Terrell Manning.
Manning was a fifth-round draft pick by the Packers in 2012. He played in five regular-season games and two postseason games for Green Bay that season and one game with the Chargers in 2013. He's shown an ability to be a helper on special teams, which bodes well for his chances if he gets an opportunity to show anything on defense. I imagine they'll use him on the weak side and maybe give him a chance to show whether he can handle Beason's middle linebacker job, since they don't have a clear and obvious replacement on the roster right now.
The Giants also announced that third-round draft pick Jay Bromley has signed his rookie contract, which means all seven of their 2014 draft picks are now under contract.
