The Giants could lose a pair of free agent defensive linemen in Justin Tuck and Linval Joseph once the market officially opens and they are reportedly looking to Baltimore for a possible replacement.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun and Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News both report that the Giants have expressed interest in defensive end Arthur Jones, who has spent the last four seasons with the Ravens. Jones joins cornerback Alterraun Verner as reported Giants targets in free agency.

Jones has started 19 games for Baltimore over the last two seasons, recording 8.5 sacks and forcing a fumble while picking up a Super Bowl ring after the 2012 season. He’s ranked 30th on PFT‘s Hot List of the top 100 players eligible for free agency this offseason.

Wilson adds that the Titans and Redskins also have interest in Jones, who has played in a 3-4 defense during his time with the Ravens. The Giants don’t run that type of scheme, but it seems they think Jones is versatile enough to handle a switch.
