It didn’t take long for the New York Giants to jump into the free-agency market, signing four players during the first 90 minutes of the 2014 NFL calendar.
First, the G-Men attempted to bolster their defensive line, poaching a player from the world champion Seattle Seahawks.
LB O'Brien Schofield agrees to terms with the Giants. Two years, $8 million. Per league source.

Big Blue then attempted to fill an area of need, adding a running back to a group that was decimated last season by injuries.

All told, it was a busy first day of free agency in New York. And the G-Men probably aren’t done yet.
