EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have signed Canadian center Brett Jones and waived 2012 first-round draft pick running back David Wilson, whose career was cut short by a neck injury.
The Giants announced the moves Wednesday, a little more than a month before free agency opens.
Jones, 6-foot-2 and 315 pounds, played the last two seasons for the Calgary Stampeders, winning the Grey Cup, the CFL's title, last season. He played his college ball in Canada, was chosen the CFL's top rookie in 2013 and its most outstanding lineman last season.
J.D. Walton started at center for the Giants (6-10) in 2014. Coach Tom Coughlin said after the season he was planning to move guard Weston Richburg to center for his second season in the league. Now there is a lot of competition.
