The New York Giants signed free agent Ricky Seals-Jones. Here are five things to know about the tight end:
1. Seals-Jones has played in 54 regular-season games with 15 starts for the Cardinals (2017-18), Browns (2019), Chiefs (2020), and Commanders (2021). His career numbers include 90 receptions for 1,044 yards (11.6 yards per catch) and 10 touchdowns.
2. The 6-foot-5, 243-pounder made a career-high six starts last season for the Commanders and caught 30 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns, including a 19-yard score against the Giants to put Washington ahead with 4:33 left in a wild Week 2 matchup on Thursday Night Football.
3. Undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2017, he originally signed with the Cardinals as a rookie free agent and caught three touchdowns (on just 12 receptions) in his first season. In 2018, he posted career-highs in receptions (34) and yards (343). Cleveland claimed him off waivers in 2019 as he went on to post a career-high four touchdown catches.
4. Seals-Jones signed with the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs in 2020 and appeared in four games that season, including two postseason contests as Kansas City won the AFC title. He now joins what will be a new-look tight ends room for the Giants, who recently parted ways with Evan Engram (signed with Jacksonville as a free agent), Kyle Rudolph (released), and Kaden Smith (waived).
5. He is cousins with Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson, who became the first player in NFL history to gain more than 1,000 yards in seven consecutive seasons and was the fastest running back to 10,000 yards. They both played at Sealy High School in Texas.
