Giants Lose Pair Of Players To Free Agency
The New York Giants have done pretty well this off-season when it comes to signing key free agents to help their team. However, they are also losing players in free agency as well.
On Saturday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers finalized a deal with the Giants top pass rusher from 2015, Robert Ayers. Ayers will sign a 3-year/$21 million deal.
"Robert is a versatile pass rusher who can play a variety of positions along the defensive line and has been successful both from the interior as well as the edge," Buccaneers GM Jason Licht said in a statement.
Ayers had 9.5 sacks last season (career high), including 7.5 in the last five games.
The Giants also lost Prince Amukamara. The corner back will sign a 1-year deal with the Jags as they look to re-tool their defense. Amukamara has only played a full season once (2013) and with the Giants signing Janoris Jenkins this past week, it was inevitable that he would have to find a new home.
