The New York Giants Wednesday announced the signings of eight players to reserve/futures contracts for the 2012 NFL season.
Defensive back Brandon Bing, running back Andre Brown, offensive lineman Selvish Capers, wide receiver Dan DePalma, defensive tackle Dwayne Hendricks (who played in one game this season), tight end Christian Hopkins, quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, wide receiver Isaiah Stanback and defensive end Adrian Tracy were the eight players signed
Each player spent part or all of the 2011 season on the Giants’ practice squad. Perrilloux was cut and re-signed numerous times throughout the season. Tracy was a sixth-round draft choice by the Giants in 2010. Bing played collegiately at Rutgers. Brown was a fourth-round pick in 2009 who missed all of that season due to injury, was cut in 2010 and played for several teams, then returned to the Giants for the 2011 season.
The contracts guarantee only that the players will be with the Giants when the team’s offseason training activities begin.
