EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants have signed defensive tackles Jermelle Cudjo and Davon Coleman.
The Giants announced the moves on Friday, a day after placing defensive tackles Damon Harrison (knee) and Jay Bromley (ankle) on the physically unable to perform list. To make room on the roster, New York waived receiver Donte Foster and defensive tackle Melvin Lewis, who was on the active/non-football injury list.
Cudjo played in 45 games with four starts with St. Louis and Detroit from 2010-15. His career totals include 51 tackles (40 solo) and 1 1/2 sacks. Last year, Cudjo had seven tackles in his only season with the Lions.
Coleman played in four games with one start for the Dallas Cowboys in 2014-15. He was credited with three tackles in 2014. Coleman was signed as an undrafted rookie by Dallas in 2014, when he played in two games, including his only career start.
The Giants also announced they have added Michael Murphy and D.J. Boisture to their scouting staff.
Murphy has 18 years of experience in the NFL as a scout and in other positions for four franchises. Boisture was a two-year intern with the Giants' pro personnel department.
Murphy, 51, spent the 2015 season as the director of player personnel for the University of Colorado football program. Boisture returns to the Giants from the NFL Network in Los Angeles, where he was a football researcher.
