Fullback John Conner signed a two-year contract with the New York Giants, according to a source.
Conner played for the New York Jets, including eight starts in 2011, and was released by the Cincinnati Bengals in August after losing a competition with Orson Charles in training camp.
The Giants needed a fullback after Henry Hynoski suffered a shoulder injury.
Conner is a straight-ahead, traditional fullback who offers little versatility in the passing game and isn't a legitimate receiving option.
