He was an exclusive rights free agent  
Milton : 3/12/2018 12:03 pm : link
This was a no-brainer move and means nothing at all.
Free Agency has already been a huge success  
Mike from Ohio : 3/12/2018 12:04 pm : link
even if we sign nobody else.

Nice sample of how he plays. I suggest also checking out Cameron Fleming at RT for the Patriots. They were selected in the same draft. I think he would be a nice affordable option at RT for us this year.
He actually

God is Good! Iím humbled & honored to be signing with the @Giants for the 2018 season! Itís a huge day for my family!

Iím grateful to the NYG organization for believing in me, my mgmt team for supporting me, andómost of allóthe Good Lord who continues to open doors for me!
He played pretty well  
Joey in VA : 3/12/2018 12:56 pm : link
Down the stretch, he was a nice surprise.
he's solid depth  
Andy in Boston : 3/12/2018 1:23 pm : link
my guess is, him and Greco battle it out for the backup center spot.
Good signing I think.  
NikkiMac : 3/12/2018 1:30 pm : link

He'll be good depth  
VinegarPeppers : 3/12/2018 2:40 pm : link
And as we find out quite regularly, depth that can play is something we badly need.
Interesting that DG is

looking at NE OL players like Halapio and maybe Fleming because Brady and ELI are so similar in style. Poor mobility, drop back passers that read defenses very well but need some room to be effective. Like what I am seeing here with the new brain trust guys in the front office.
He Played Well  
Angus : 3/12/2018 3:12 pm : link
When he got his chance. That makes him a candidate for campl competition, bridge player (one year till the giants get better), backup, or starter depending on how he plays in the future and who else is on the roster.

Was not going to much more as a Free Agent and he probably figured that the Giants gave him the best shot at making a final roster
The guy is built like a tank. He's a monster.  
Marty in Albany : 3/12/2018 3:15 pm : link
Hopefully, he has some talent to go along with the muscles.
Greco-Halapio  
JonC : 3/12/2018 3:33 pm : link
plan B pair? They were an upgrade last year, albeit one is older and one is probably JAG.

He wasn't a free agent, wasn't even a restricted free agent. He was an exclusive rights free agent (and he'll be an exclusive rights free agent again next year). Which mean his only other choice was the CFL (or a job in sales).
The Giants could have let him go if they chose.  
Ivan15 : 3/12/2018 4:23 pm : link
Costs them nothing to keep him since he is probably outside the cap base number.
Halapio could use a little more giddy-up but  
Jimmy Googs : 3/12/2018 10:06 pm : link
he is not a bad O-lineman at all.

And we have bad O-lineman...
Probably starts  
giantsFC : 3/12/2018 11:03 pm : link
By week 4 due to injuries.
Correction  
giantsFC : 3/13/2018 10:24 am : link
Week 1.
Likely a starter now.  
VinegarPeppers : 3/13/2018 11:20 am : link
Maybe with Nelson. Losing out on Norwell is so discouraging.

If we go into 2018 with him and Pugh starting itís a wasted season because we will have no offense.

For some reason I think weíre going to make due with the OL and focus on LB and CB this offseason.
