Fenner, 6 feet and 200 pounds, spent the 2013 season on the Seattle Seahawks' injured reserve list with a knee injury. He was waived by Seattle on Tuesday, when the Seahawks signed former Giant Terrell Thomas.

Fenner entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012. He had six tackles in the preseason – including five in a game vs. Green Bay – before being waived by the Chiefs in the final cutdown. Fenner was signed to Seattle's practice squad on Dec. 6, 2012.

Fenner played in 44 games at Holy Cross (and finished his career with 158 career tackles). As a senior in 2011, he ranked fourth on the team with 68 total tackles. Fenner also forced two fumbles and had two interceptions. He was also a member of the school's track and field team.

Howard, a first-year pro from Ohio State, ended the 2013 season on the Giants' practice squad and was signed to a reserve/future contract on Dec. 13. He recently suffered a knee injury in practice.
