The New York Giants were very active this week during free agency starting to fill some of the voids on their roster on both sides of the ball.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have dipped into the free agency market, signing former Patriots running back Shane Vereen and three other players.

A person with knowledge of the moves who requested anonymity because the Giants had not confirmed the agreements said the team also signed former Green Bay and Cincinnati offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse; Patriots linebacker Jonathan Casillas; and Cowboys return specialist/receiver Dwayne Harris.

Vereen’s contract is for three years and slightly more than $12 million. Casillas got a three-year $10.5 million deal, and Harris’ deal is worth $17.5 million over five years, with $7.1 million is guaranteed. Terms of Newhouse’s contract were not immediately available.
