Add another name to the Giants’ offseason haul.
The team announced Tuesday that they have signed tackle Charles Brown. Brown visited with the Giants earlier in free agency and joins an offensive line that has also added Geoff Schwartz, John Jerry and J.D. Walton to the mix since the start of free agency.
Brown spent most of last season as the Saints’ starting left tackle, but wound up getting benched in favor of rookie Terron Armstead after a rough outing against Rams defensive end Robert Quinn. He’s played right tackle as well during his career and gives the Giants an experienced option as a swing tackle behind Will Beatty and Justin Pugh.
The Giants got very little from their offensive line last season and have devoted a good bit of time to reworking it this offseason. If nothing else, they’ll have more choices available to them heading into next season as they try for a better performance up front.
