Giants add OL depth

The Giants improved the depth on their offensive line when they signed Grey Ruegamer, an eight-year pro who has previously been with Miami, New England and Green Bay.

Ruegamer, a 6-4, 305-pounder, has played in 76 regular season games with 16 starts (14 at center, two at right guard). He has also played in six postseason games with one start.

Ruegamer, a product of Arizona State, just completed a three-year stint in Green Bay. In 2005, he played in 13 games with two starts, the Dec. 5 and Dec. 25 games vs. Chicago, his first career starts at right guard. Ruegamer had his best season in 2004, when he started at center in 11 of the 15 games in which he played after Mike Flanagan suffered a knee injury. His first Packers start was on Oct. 3 against the Giants. He also started the NFC Wild Card Game against Minnesota.

TGI's take: Will provide solid depth along an O-line that's coming off a solid season. He's basically a better version of Jason Whittle, who was released and signed with Minnesota.
