EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – For the second time in four days, the Giants have retained one of their centers.
The team announced today that Spencer Pulley has signed a new contract. Pulley, whom the Giants acquired off waivers last Sept. 2, played in 13 games with nine starts in 2018. He moved into the starting lineup on Oct. 22 in Atlanta and stayed there for nine of the team's last 10 games. Pulley was inactive at Indianapolis on Dec. 23 with a calf injury.
Last Friday, the Giants re-signed exclusive rights free agent Jon Halapio, who started last season's first two games at center. His season ended on Sept. 16, when he fractured his lower right leg and ankle at Dallas.
Pulley, 6-4 and 308 pounds, entered the NFL out of Vanderbilt as an undrafted free agent with the San Diego Chargers in 2016. As a rookie, he saw action in all 16 games at center, left guard and right guard and provided protection on special teams. The following year, the Chargers moved to Los Angeles and Pulley started all 16 games at center and led all Chargers offensive players with 1,056 offensive snaps.
Pulley was waived by Los Angeles on Sept. 1 and was awarded to the Giants the following day.
