Giants sign veteran defensive back David Long Jr.


The New York Giants today signed free agent defensive back David Long Jr., who is entering his sixth season in the NFL.

Overall, Long has appeared in 66 regular-season games with 12 starts. His career numbers include 97 tackles, eight passes defensed, and an interception. He has also played in six postseason games with one start, which occurred in the Rams' victory over the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.

The Los Angeles native was a two-year letterman at the University of Michigan, where he was a two-time All-Big Ten honoree. He played in 30 contests during his college career, including 26 starts at cornerback.
