The New York Giants confirmed they have signed a trio of free agents that include tight end Cole Hikutini and defensive backs Joshua Kalu and Chris Milton.

Hikutini, 6’4”, 240 pounds, played his college ball at Louisville. He entered the league in 2017 as an undrafted free agent with the 49ers, with whom he played four games, recording two receptions for 15 yards. He spent the 2018 season on the Vikings practice squad before joining the Cowboys practice squad. After signing a reserve/futures contract with Dallas earlier this year, the Cowboys released him. 

Kalu entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska in 2018 when the Titans signed him. Kalu, 6-foot, 203 pounds, has 26 career tackles in 28 games played. Primarily deployed on special teams, Kalu reunites with safety Logan Ryan and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson, who also played with the Titans.
