After two days of subtracting salaries, the Giants added a couple on Thursday when they re-signed defensive tackle Shaun Rogers and tight end Bear Pascoe.
The 6-4, 350-pound Rogers, who will turn 34 next month, signed with the Giants last April, but missed all of last season with a blood clot in his leg. However, the return of the veteran defensive tackle will come in handy, after the Giants cut starting DT Chris Canty on Wednesday.
Pascoe, who was scheduled to become a restricted free agent on March 12, actually signed a few days ago, agreeing to a one-year deal worth about $900,000 with a salary of $715,000, according to an NFL source. At the moment, Pascoe and second-year pro Adrien Robinson are the only tight ends from last year’s team under contract for 2013.
Pascoe is the first of the Giants’ five restricted free agents to sign.
They also still have 18 players who will be unrestricted free agents, including tight ends Martellus Bennett and Travis Beckum.
