EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Giants announced they have re-signed running back Matt Breida.
Breida is entering his seventh NFL season and second with the Giants. In 2022, he played in all 19 regular-season and postseason games as Saquon Barkley’s primary backup. He finished second on the team with 220 rushing yards and one touchdown on 54 carries and added 20 receptions for 118 yards. In the playoffs, Breida added 31 yards on seven attempts, including an eight-yard touchdown in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game in Philadelphia, and caught one pass for 19 yards.
Breida entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with San Francisco in 2017, from Georgia Southern. He played three seasons for the 49ers and one each for Miami and Buffalo – where Daboll was the offensive coordinator – before joining the Giants as a free agent in 2022. In 81 career games (20 starts), he has 501 carries for 2,501 yards and eight touchdowns, and 103 catches for 847 yards and six scores.
