Today the New York Giants signed veteran defensive tackle Barry Cofield. The Giants were struggling at the defensive tackle position and this will add leadership to the young locker room.

Cofield, 31, played five seasons with the Giants from 2006-2010, helping anchor the defensive line of the Super Bowl XLII champion. Cofield spent the last five years in Washington. He was released this off-season.

To make room for Cofield, the Giants released safety Brandon Meriweather, thinning their ranks at safety. Meriweather had started 11 games this season, stabilizing a position of concern for Big Blue after signing midway through training camp, but he’d missed two straight outings with a knee injury.
