Chase Blackburn will rejoin Giants

The New York Giants have traded for help at linebacker with Keith Rivers earlier this week and now they’re adding more help.

Chase Blackburn, who had a key interception in the team’s victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, will rejoin the team, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. Blackburn will sign a one-year deal, likely for the veteran minimum, per the report.

Blackburn joined the team during the season and made four starts. He’ll provide some depth but probably isn’t viewed as a starter. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Giants targeted some help at linebacker in the draft.
