Kicking Game Signs Two More Players

Giants fans remember when the 2002 Seahawks came to the Meadlowlands and field position (and punting in particular) kept the Seahawks in the game. The Giants signed away the best player from that game, and got a huge lift in special teams.

The Giants moved from worse in the league in punting (Allen's 36.9 yards per punt in 2002) to one of the best yesterday.

P Jeff Feagles signed a five-year deal worth approximately $4.3 million which included a $500,000 signing bonus.

Feagles was 5th in the league in punting last year with a 41.7-yard gross. In the 2002 Seahawks/Giants game at the Meadowlands, Feagles had six punts for an outstanding 47.8-yard average. That certainly was a factor in the Giants' minds for signing him.

Getting Feagles the ball was the next step in the Giants overhaul of the punting game. The Giants signed long-snapper Ryan Kuehl to a five-year, $3.62 million deal which included a $325,000 signing bonus.

Kuehl is a six-year veteran who spent the last four years with the Cleveland Browns.
