Giants Retain G Anderson

The New York Giants announced on Tuesday that they have re-signed guard Jack Anderson, who was set to become an exclusive rights free agent, to a contract for next season. 

Anderson is the second ERFA signed in two days by the Giants, as the New York club inked TE Lawrence Cager to a deal on Monday. 

The 24-year-old guard, who played college football at Texas Tech, was selected 236th overall by the Buffalo Bills in the 2021 NFL Draft. After a short stint on the Bills, Anderson signed with the Eagles to their active roster, but was placed on their IR in December 2021 and was waived last summer apart of Philadelphia's final roster cuts. He was claimed off waivers a day later by the Giants, and will now call New York home for the near future. 

Anderson, a young developmental player with upside, played in 12 games last season for New York in which he started for two.
