Giants Free Agency 2012: New York Signs Shaun Rogers Before 2012 NFL Draft

The 2012 NFL Draft is just hours away from its start, and the New York Giants are making moves. Well, the Giants are not making any trades for draft picks, but they did sign defensive lineman Shaun Rogers on Thursday. The move adds depth to the New York's defensive line which is needed.

Rogers, 33, is a three-time Pro Bowler who spent last season with the New Orleans Saints, but played just five game over the last two seasons. Rogers most productive years come when he was with the Detroit Lions ('01-07), where he made two Pro Bowl teams.

Rogers' best days maybe behind him, however, his experience and extra body is a nice addition. Rogers probably will not be asked to be a play-maker, which might be a good role for him.

This move may affect the Giants pick in the NFL Draft, No. 32 overall, but many NFL Mock drafts have them taking a tight end.
