New York Giants Sign Louis Murphy

The New York Giants are facing some wide receiver depth leaving on the open market with Ramses Barden and Domenik Hixon available as unrestricted free agents.With the potential losses at the position, the Giants are doing some shopping of their own in hopes of finding some replacements.

Per Giants beat writer Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger:

Last season with the Carolina Panthers, Murphy had a mere 25 catches for 336 yards and one touchdown. With the Giants, he could certainly earn a much bigger role with Barden and Hixon potentially heading to another town. Don’t be surprised if the New York Giants continue to look at the available free agent wide receivers.

On the defensive side of the ball, New York signed linebacker Dan Connor to a one-year contract.
