Giants sign DE Selvie

on

Dallas Cowboys free agent defensive end George Selvie defected to the NFC East rival New York Giants.

Selvie agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Giants, where he’ll again play on the same defensive line as college teammate Jason Pierre-Paul.

Selvie revived his career with the Cowboys but the Cowboys were not in position to bring him back based on their salary cap situation and personnel changes. The Cowboys signed defensive end Greg Hardy to a one-year deal Wednesday.

The Giants placed the franchise tag on Pierre-Paul and looked at multiple pass rushers in free agency.

Selvie brings some versatility as a defensive end and defensive tackle. He primarily played left defensive end with the Cowboys.

The Giants list Robert Ayers and Damontre Moore at left end but head coach Tom Coughlin said at the Scouting Combine last month that the team is determined to get deeper and better up front after a miserable defensive effort in 2014 cost coordinator Perry Fewell his job.
