On Monday, the New York Giants signed defensive tackle Jay Bromley (6-foot-4, 307 pounds) and linebacker Terrell Manning (6-foot-2, 237 pounds). Bromley was the Giants third round draft pick and the No. 74 overall selection in the NFL Draft of this year. He is a graduate of Syracuse University where he played in 50 games and amassed a total of 121 tackles with 71 of them being solo. He was also a senior captain for the team.
Manning, who was recently released by the Minnesota Vikings on May 13, also played for the Green Bay Packers in 2012 and the San Diego Chargers in 2013. During his time with the Packers and Chargers, he played in a total of six regular-season games and two playoff games for the Packers.
Manning, a North Carolina State graduate, had a rough first year of playing in the NFL. The start of his NFL career was marked by numerous injuries and an illness that slowed him from playing for the Packers in much of the regular season. He was out for the next five games after he suffered from a concussion in the first regular season game against San Francisco.
During his time at North Carolina State however, he was a starter for two years and played in 36 games and totaled 207 tackles, 128 being solo.
Before he was waived by the Packers, Manning tallied seven tackles and a pass defense in three preseason games. Manning's time with the Chargers was short lived. After San Diego lost to Tennessee on September 22, he was released three days later and signed to San Diego's practice squad where he remained the rest of the season.
Following his release from a future/reserve contract with the Chargers on April14, he was picked up by the Vikings the following day. After being with the Vikings for only a month, he was released on May 13th.
