The Giants have signed an ex-Lion, but not the one their fans were hoping for.
The team signed inside linebacker Reggie Ragland to a one-year deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.
Ragland, 27, entered the NFL as a second-round choice of the Bills in 2016. He never played a down for Buffalo, spending his rookie season on injured reserve with a torn ACL before joining the Chiefs in a trade.
After three seasons with the Chiefs, Ragland joined the Lions last April 7.
He starting six games last season, recording 52 tackles, four tackles for loss, a sack and three quarterback hits.
The Giants aren’t done at linebacker, with the team scheduled to host free agent Brandon Copeland.
