Player Notes
DE Robert Ayers signed a two-year, $4 million deal with the Giants. Ayers, who posted a career-high 5.5 sacks with the Broncos in 2013, was the 18th overall pick in 2009 and spent his first five seasons in Denver. Ayers has the size at 6-feet-3, 274 to play left or right end and even slide inside to defensive tackle in the Giants' NASCAR package, filling part of the role played by Justin Tuck in previous seasons. Tuck signed with the Oakland Raiders last month. Ayers has 27 career starts and experience at outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense and was primarily a defensive end in recent seasons. He will join a group of pass rushers that includes Jason Pierre-Paul, Mathias Kiwanuka and Damontre Moore. "This is a tremendous opportunity for me, coming to a great organization like this," Ayers said. "They hate losing and they're always about getting better and preparing and I've heard nothing but good things about the general manager and the owners, the coaches. "Everyone speaks highly of them across the league. They're a blue-collar organization, and I'm looking forward to being part of that. I left the Denver Broncos, who were a good organization, and I feel like I'm going to just as good or better of an organization. It's going to be good to come here and be with leaders like Jon Beason and Antrel Rolle and Eli (Manning). It's going to be a good experience for me, and hopefully I can help this team win."
