The Giants have a thing for former Titans defensive backs.
They signed safety Logan Ryan prior to last season and signed cornerback Adoree’ Jackson this off-season. On Tuesday, they added two more of them, adding defensive backs Joshua Kalu and Chris Milton as depth pieces to the roster.
The Giants also signed a third player, tight end Cole Hikutini.
Kalu, 25, was undrafted out of Nebraska and spent the past three seasons with the Titans, playing in 28 games (zero starts), including a career-high 15 in 2020. A safety, his big moment in the NFL came in Week 10 of the 2019 season, when he blocked a potential tying field goal attempt by Harrison Butker as time expired to secure a 35-32 upset victory over the Chiefs.
Milton, 28, was not drafted out of Georgia Tech and has one NFL start in his 55 games played in the NFL. He spent his first three seasons with the Colts and the past two with the Titans. He has two career fumble recoveries.
Hikutini, 26, was undrafted out of Louisville and played in four games for the 49ers as a rookie in 2017, catching two passes for 15 yards. That is the extent of his NFL game experience, as he spent the past three years on the practice squads of the Vikings and Cowboys.
