Giants give extensions to DeOssie, Koets
Some teams are shying away from doing in-season extensions with the labor situation cloudy. The New York Giants stepped up and got a pair of them done, though, as long snapper Zak DeOssie and backup offensive lineman Adam Koets both received two-year extensions.
DeOssie’s two-year extension includes $2.25 million in new money, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, and with incentives it can reach $3 million.
Koets, who was lost for the season Sunday with a torn ACL, received roughly $2 million in new money, per the report. Both deals were finalized on Saturday, and the team announced them today.
In other news, the Giants waived wide receiver and return man Sinorice Moss off of injured reserve. He’s been sidelined following surgery for a sports hernia. Koets was placed on IR, and taking his place was offensive lineman Kevin Boothe, who was promoted off the physically unable to perform list.
