The Giants have added some veteran depth to their defensive line.

Israel Idonije, a 33-year-old who has played most of his career in Chicago, signed with the Giants today.

Last year Idonije played in 15 games for the Lions but didn’t get a lot of playing time and had only seven total tackles. Idonije had previously played nine years for the Bears, and he re-signed with the Bears this offseason but lasted only two months before he was released in June.

Now Idonije will try to earn a roster spot in New York, which could be his last opportunity to remain employed in the NFL.
