Giants sign durable O-lineman Jon Runyan Jr.


The Giants bolstered the interior of their offensive line with the signing of guard Jon Runyan Jr.

Runyan was a sixth-round pick (No. 192 overall) by the Green Bay Packers in 2020. He has yet to miss a game in his four-year NFL career.

After playing in all 16 games as a reserve his rookie year, Runyan has started 50 of 51 games across the last three seasons. The 6-foot-4, 307-pound lineman started all 17 games at right guard in 2023 and allowed just 22 total pressures and two sacks, according to Pro Football Focus. His 92.4 pass rush win rate ranked ninth among all guards, according to ESPN Stats and Info.

Runyan started all 17 games for the Packers in 2022, with 11 at right guard and six at left guard. He started all 17 games at left guard for Green Bay in 2021.

He has played 1,897 total pass blocking snaps in his NFL career and has allowed only seven sacks.

Runyan had a successful collegiate career at the University of Michigan, where he appeared in 32 career games with 25 starts (24 at left tackle, one at right tackle). He earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the conference's coaches as both a junior and a senior, and also took home first-team recognition from the media as a senior in 2019. He was also a two-time recipient of the Hugh R. Radar Award as the University of Michigan's top offensive lineman.

His father, Jon Sr., played 14 years in the NFL, including nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, and often matched up against Giants defensive end Michael Strahan. The Pro Football Hall of Famer thanked Jon Sr. in his induction speech, calling him "the toughest guy I ever had to face on a consistent basis."

Jon Sr. also served as the U.S. Representative for New Jersey's 3rd congressional district from 2011 to 2015 and currently works for the NFL as the vice president of policy and rules administration.
