Giants sign OL Tutan Reyes, waive TE Milner

BY: Marc Cogliano

The New York Giants have added depth to their offensive line with the signing of 10-year veteran Tutan Reyes.
Reyes, signed Thursday, has started 37 of 53 regular-season games in a career that has included stops in New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Buffalo and Jacksonville. He started three games for the Jaguars last season.

To make room on the roster, the Giants waived tight end Martrez Milner, who spent most of the 2008 season on the team's practice squad.

Reyes is a New York native, he was born in Queens, N.Y. on Oct. 28, 1977. He played at August Martin High School in Queens. After high school Tutan attended Mississippi their he was listed as a tight end before shifting to the line, where he started 24 consecutive games at left tackle. As a senior in 1999, he was a second team All-SEC selection.

With this pick up the Giants should be the most depth team at the offensive line in the NFL. If you remember their O-Line produce two one thousand yard runners, Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward (who is now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers).
