EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today continued their flurry of offseason acquisitions when they signed veteran offensive lineman Zach Fulton.
Fulton, 29, brings skill and experience to the Giants' young offensive line. He started 44 games at right guard the previous three seasons for the Houston Texans, including all 16 contests in 2019. Fulton was released by Houston on March 15.
In his career, Fulton has played in 170 regular-regular season games with 90 starts and started all seven postseason games in which he played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston. He has started 65 games at right guard, 16 at left guard and nine at center in the regular season and three each at right guard and center and one at left guard in the playoffs. Fulton has played all 16 games four times in seven years and never missed more than three games in a season.
Fulton, 6-5 and 321 pounds, was selected in the sixth round of the 2014 Draft (193rd overall) by the Chiefs. As a rookie, he started all 16 games at right guard.
