The Giants announced Thursday that they have signed safety Chris Horton, formerly of the division-rival Redskins.
Horton, 27, signed a one-year deal. He was out of football last season after Washington waived him at final cuts.
Horton will likely focus on special teams with the Giants, though he did gain some starting experience early in his Redskins career. Horton started ten games as a rookie in 2008 and five more in 2009.
