Notebook: Giants bring back 2022 kicking battery


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today announced they have re-signed two of their primary special teams players in punter Jamie Gillan and long-snapper Casey Kreiter.

They also retained the services of guard Wyatt Davis, a late-season acquisition.

Gillan was a first-year Giant in 2022 after spending three seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He punted a career-high 74 times for a 46.8-yard gross average and a 40.1-yard net average. Gillan placed 26 punts inside the 20-yard line and had nine touchbacks. He twice kicked a season-long 69-yard punt – at Tennessee on Sept. 11 and at Seattle on Oct 20. In the postseason, Gillan averaged 43.7 yards on seven punts, none of which were returned.

Gillan entered the NFL as a free agent with the Cleveland Browns in 2019. He was briefly with the Buffalo Bills last year before signing with the Giants on Feb. 7. In 61 career regular-season games, Gillan has a 45.5-yard gross average and a 40.0-yard net average on 230 punts.

Kreiter is entering his fourth season with the Giants. Including the postseason, he has played in 100 consecutive games, 52 with the Giants. He was voted a team captain in 2022, when he snapped on all the Giants' placekicks and punts.

Kreiter was signed as a rookie free agent by the Denver Broncos in 2016. He joined the Giants four years later.

Wyatt was acquired off waivers on Dec. 28, one day after he was released by the Arizona Cardinals. He was inactive vs. Indianapolis on New Year's Day, made his Giants debut at left guard at Philadelphia a week later, and was inactive for the Giants' two postseason games.

Wyatt was a third-round draft choice by the Minnesota Vikings in 2021. He played in six games as a rookie and one each for the New Orleans Saints and the Cardinals last year before joining the Giants.

At Ohio State, Wyatt played in 50 games with 24 starts and was a two-time first-team All-American and first-team All-Big Ten. He was named the 2020 Big Ten Conference Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year.
