Giants sign Will Johnson, Ryan Seymour, Dillon Farrell
The New York Giants signed fullback-tight end Will Johnson, center Ryan Seymour and offensive lineman Dillon Farrell. Johnson missed one game in four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Johnson has 31 career catches for 235 yards and two touchdowns and one rushing touchdown. Seymour, 6-4 and 305 pounds, played in 11 games – starting at center in the final three games of the season – for the Cleveland Browns in 2014. He was waived by the Browns on Aug. 27, 2015. After serving a four-game NFL suspension, Seymour did stints on the practice squads of the Chicago Bears (Oct. 7-13) and New Orleans Saints (Oct. 20-Dec. 26, when he was added to the active roster). Seymour was inactive for one game, and active but did not play in the season finale. Seymour was a 2013 seventh-round draft choice by the Seattle Seahawks, from Vanderbilt. He was waived at the end of training camp, was twice on the Seahawks’ practice squad, and spent time with the San Francisco 49ers before the Browns claimed him off waivers on Aug. 31, 2014. Farrell, 6-5 and 303 pounds, played in eight games as a reserve offensive lineman with the 49ers in 2014. He was waived on Sept. 15, 2015 and signed eight days later to the Tennessee Titans’ practice squad, where he spent the remainder of the season. Farrell started 45 games at the University of New Mexico. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
