With stalwart guard Chris Snee electing to retire, the Giants added to their numbers at the position on Monday, signing John Sullen, a first-year pro from Auburn. The signing of Sullen was disclosed in the NFL’s daily personnel notice.

Sullen (6-6, 340) signed with the Bengals after the 2013 NFL Draft. He appeared in three preseason games with Cincinnati before being waived on August 31.

Sullen will take the roster spot of the 32-year-old Snee, who officially was released with a failed physical designation. The 11th-year guard has hip and elbow injuries.

In another roster move Monday, the Giants waived wide receiver Kris Adams from the reserve/physically unable to perform list after he failed a physical. Adams suffered a broken leg last year.

    He’s ginormous. Really more the size of a RT.

    It was the first time anyone had seen Sullen smile.

    So much for Mara’s earlier statement about not looking for offensive lineman…

    Snee waiting till training camp so he could get permanent disability at a whopping $250,000/yr. It’s factual, to get this you either need a very serious injury, (ie: retiring due to a head injury while in your prime or getting paralyzed on the field) or you need to be “very friendly” w/the teams front office/team doctors (IE: Snee’s situation). This was a situation where the ploy for the 250k/year was extremely obviously….I sure hope the insurance company takes a closer look into this case…there are plenty of players that desperately need to $250k & really aren’t capable of playing (esp at a young age)…

    He should be happy. Why is he Sullen?
