The Giants didn’t have to look too far to find a new player for their defensive backfield.
Safety Mike Basile played his college ball at Monmouth after growing up in Brick, New Jersey and will now pursue a professional career in the Garden State. The Giants announced his addition to the 90-man roster on Wednesday.
Basile was a first-team FCS All-American last year and left school as the all-time leader in tackles. He had 126 total tackles and 9.5 tackles for loss during his senior season.
