Giants bring in a new offensive lineman

The Giants made a change to their 90-man roster on Wednesday.

They announced the signing of offensive lineman Corin Brooks and that offensive lineman Jessamen Dunker has been waived/injured. Dunker was signed after going undrafted in April.

Brooks was also undrafted in April and spent a brief spell with the Chiefs earlier this offseason. He played left tackle at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.

Offensive line was a trouble spot for the Giants last season, but they didn’t make any major moves this offseason to shake up the group. Brooks’ signing doesn’t change that as the gap between the Permian Basin and the NFL is a big one that Brooks will have to show he can handle this summer just to get a look as a developmental prospect.

  1. As an Eagles Fan I can say this is music to my ears. The Gmen have all of these offensive weapons but if your QB doesn’t have the time to get them the ball then cant be effective.

  2. Giants GM’s are like coaches in Pittsburgh, practically a protected species. There is no excuse for not fixing that line. Every team in the NFC should be sending Reese a thank you card because that D combined with an offense that could stay on the field once in a while would be very hard to beat.

  3. Sigh,

    I assume they can’t afford it, but they badly need a Left Tackle.
    Get Branden Albert from the Jaguars! they need him badly, figure out a one year deal…going into 2017 with that same OL is going to ruin this team.

  4. Eli is already gunshy as can be.

    This should make matter better!!!

    Amazing with all the $$$ they spend on Defense they can’t sign a lineman worth a damn.

  5. Guys are right. Not addressing OL puzzling. What do they see in the tackles that we don’t?
    Fix could come from waiver wire as teams finalize rosters OR considering weapons E must get the ball out in 2.5 secs or less. Run game

  6. Listen I’m a giants fan, I was very saddened to see the giants not pick up an olineman. They say “in Reese we trust “, Well most giants fans do anyway. I personally feel like he’s kinda incompetent, but hey what do I know, I’m only a fan who doesn’t wanna see our quarterback killed. What good is an offensive playbook, if Eli doesn’t have time to let routes develop?
