Giants re-sign WR C.J. Board, DT Austin Johnson, LS Casey Kreiter


The Giants formally announced the signing of wide receiver C.J. Board, defensive tackle Austin Johnson and long snapper Casey Kreiter.

In his first season with the Giants in 2019, Board played in 14 games with four starts. He caught 11 passes for 101 yards, with a long reception of 16 yards. Board missed two games with a concussion.

Board joined the Giants on Aug. 13, two days after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars. In his debut season with Jacksonville in 2019, Board played in four games and caught two passes for 31 yards, including a 23-yarder.

Johnson, 26, played in all 16 games as a reserve on the defensive line last season. He could see more playing time this year after the departure of Dalvin Tomlinson, who signed as a free agent with the Minnesota Vikings. Johnson collected 18 tackles (eight solo), 1.0 sack, two tackles for loss, one pass defensed and his first career forced fumble.

Kreiter, who joined the Giants last year after four seasons with the Denver Broncos, was the snapper on punts and placekicks in all 16 games.
