The New York Giants agreed to terms with former Jets tight end Eric Tomlinson to provide depth at the position.
Contract terms were not released.
Tomlinson, who turns 28 next month, was an undrafted free agent from UTEP when he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 before he was cut. He then joined the Houston Texans' practice squad. He signed with the Jets in 2016 and spent three seasons with the team, appearing in 36 games where he caught 16 passes, including a touchdown.
In 2019, the Jets cut him before the season, and he was picked up off waivers by the Giants. Released after three weeks, he then moved on to the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders. He made just one catch last season.
