ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Giants have come to terms with rookie defensive tackle Linval Joseph on a four-year contract. Joseph was the 46th overall pick in April’s draft.
A 6-foot-6, 300-pounder out of East Carolina, Joseph projects as a nose tackle in the Giants’ 4-3 defensive system. He’ll compete for snaps with Barry Cofield as a rookie.
The Giants have just one rookie left to sign: first-rounder Jason Pierre-Paul.
