Reports: Giants agree to terms with TE Eric Tomlinson


The Giants and tight end Eric Tomlinson have agreed to terms on a contract, according to reports.

The agreement is contingent on Tomlinson passing his physical, which will take place on a date yet to be determined.

Tomlinson entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles on May 2, 2015. He was waived at the end of training camp and three days later joined the Houston Texans' practice squad. In 2016, Houston released Tomlinson a week before the start of the season and re-signed him to the practice squad. On Nov. 6 of that year, he joined the Jets' active roster, where he played in 36 of his 44 career games.

The Giants claimed him off waivers just before the start of last season but then released him late in September. He then spent time with the Patriots and Raiders before becoming a free agent this offseason.

Tomlinson, 6-6 and 215 pounds, has played in 44 regular-season games with 32 starts and caught 17 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown. He also has seven special teams tackles and has experience as a long snapper.

Tomlinson played collegiate football at Texas-El Paso, where he was a teammate of Giants guard Will Hernandez.
