EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today signed two players to reserve/future contracts, including defensive end Avery Moss, a 2017 draft choice who spent the last two seasons with the team.
The other player is guard Chad Slade, a former Houston Texan.
Moss, 6-3 and 269 pounds, was the Giants' fifth-round draft choice two years ago out of Youngstown State. As a rookie, he played in 11 games with two starts and had 13 tackles (10 solo) and one forced fumble.
In 2018, Moss was waived on Sept. 1 and signed the following day to the Giants' practice squad, where he remained for the entire season.
Slade, 6-5 and 315 pounds, played in five games with three starts for the Texans in 2017. He made his first start at tight end and his last two at right guard. Last year, Slade was also waived on Sept. 1 and spent the season on the Texans' practice squad.
Slade joined the Texans as a rookie free agent from Auburn in 2015. He spent that entire season on injured reserve and the 2016 season on Houston's practice squad.
Slade started 49 games at Auburn, including all 14 as a senior in 2014.
