Giants Sign Three To Reserve/Futures Contracts

The New York Giants announced on Monday the signings of three players to reserve/future contracts: defensive end Craig Marshall, tight end Ryan Purvis and offensive lineman Chris White.

Marshall, 6-foot-4 and 279 pounds, is a former teammate of Jason Pierre-Paul at South Florida. He originally signed with the Giants on July 28, 2011 and was waived on Sept. 3. Marshall did two short stints on the Giants’ practice squad in November.

Purvis, 6-4 and 261 pounds, was signed by Tampa Bay as a rookie from Boston College in 2009. He spent most of that year on the Buccaneers’ practice squad. Purvis began the following season on the practice squad before he was signed to Tampa Bay’s active roster on Oct. 25. He played in 10 games and had five catches for 28 yards, with a long reception of 12 yards. Purvis started three preseason games for the Bucs last summer, but was waived on Sept. 3 and did not sign with another team.

White, 6-2, 303, is a seven-year veteran guard who was signed by the Giants on July 30, 2011 and released on Sept. 3. He has played in 33 NFL games with eight starts, all with the Houston Texans in 2009. The following year, White played in six games for the Seattle Seahawks. A product of Southern Mississippi, White entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 2005. He played in one game that year and none in 2006, when he was waived by Green Bay and signed by Houston. He spent parts of three seasons with the Texans before joining the Seahawks on Nov. 3, 2010.
