No one is using the franchise tag yet, and no quarterbacks are getting deals done.

But if you have a free agent long snapper, today’s the day to get it done.

The Giants announced that they had re-signed veteran long-snapper Zak DeOssie, following Carolina’s lead in extending J.J. Jansen.

DeOssie would have been an unrestricted free agent in March, but the Giants took care of one of their own. A fourth-rounder in 2007, he had played 149 straight games (regular and postseason) before a wrist injury sent him to injured reserve.

His return also doubles the number of players left on the roster from the two Super Bowl champions, along with quarterback Eli Manning.
