Giants bring in a new return man

The New York Giants, forced to juggle their roster for return men since the offseason, have made one final change in signing Brian Witherspoon to replace veteran Will Blackmon, who was placed on injured reserve.

Blackmon, signed in late October, appeared in five games for the Giants, missing two with a chest injury, before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

Witherspoon has appeared in 22 career games for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions. The Giants have struggled with production all season in the return game and will turn to the newcomer for Sunday’s season finale at Washington.
