Former Dallas Cowboy defensive end, George Selvie, has agreed to terms with the New York Giants after a visit that started yesterday and extend through today. The deal is for one-year and $1.4 million.
Selvie was cut by the Giants a few years prior as a veteran attempting to latch on in the Giants rookie mini camp in 2012. After the Giants parted ways with him he moved on to the Cowboys were he had a tremendous 2013 season, compiling 45 tackles, seven sacks, and one forced fumble.
He followed that up in 2014 with continued production in 30 tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble. Entering his 7th professional season, the former St. Louis Rams seventh round pick will be an excellent rotational defensive linemen for the Giants, joining current defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul, Damontre Moore, Robert Ayers Jr., and Kerry Wynn.
Selvie is a fantastic run stuffer, having 40 stuff yards during his career, as well as an above average pass rusher with 13 career sacks, 10 of which came in 2013 and 2014.
If Selvie can produce similar numbers for the Giants to those in which he put up in his past two NFL seasons and continue his upwards playing trend, he could be one of the league’s most underrated offseason signings.
