The Giants continue to use free agency to fill needs.
Ayers was No. 84 in PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.
The 28-year-old Ayers figures to take some of the reps that once went to Justin Tuck, who signed with Oakland in free agency. Ayers (6-3, 274) has recorded 142 tackles and 12 sacks in five NFL seasons, all with Denver, which took him in Round One five years ago.
The Giants have been active this offseason after a 7-9 campaign in 2013, with the signing of Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie one of their key additions.
Now, another Denver defensive contributor is joining the fold.
UPDATE 11:00 a.m. ET: The Giants have announced the addition of Ayers.
