Giants bring back OT Eric Smith, terminate Matt Gono


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today signed tackle Eric Smith, who played his first two NFL games for the team in 2019.

Smith is the second tackle added to the team in the last four days, joining Will Holden.

To create room on the roster, they terminated the contract of tackle Matt Gono.

Smith, 6-4 and 308 pounds, entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Miami Dolphins in 2017. He was then with New England and the Jets before the Giants acquired him off waivers on Sept. 1, 2019.

Smith made his debut against the Jets on Nov. 10, 2019, when he replaced left tackle Nate Solder (concussion) in the second quarter and played 53 of the team's 69 offensive snaps. He also saw action against Miami on Dec. 15.

Smith played one game for Dallas in 2020 and one for Arizona last year.

Gono was signed by the Giants on March 11 after missing the entire 2021 season following an injury. Last week, he was placed on the exempt/left squad list.
