The New York Giants are signing former Baltimore Ravens safety Tony Jefferson to their practice squad. It seemed the Baltimore Ravens had an interest in bringing him back after releasing him, but instead he signs with a new team the New York Giants. He is reunited with the Baltimore Ravens’ former defensive coordinator Wink Martindale. Outside of the Ravens, Jefferson has also spent time with the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers in his NFL career. In a rebuild, the New York Giants could use some experienced veteran depth.

Last year as a member of the Baltimore Ravens, Tony Jefferson recorded nine solo tackles, 17 total tackles, one sack, and one pass defended. He only got to play four games due to injuries last season. Baltimore signed and drafted new safeties this offseason and it became clear that Jefferson would not be on the main roster next season. He is starting his New York Giants career on the practice squad but could get a shot on the main roster this season.
Ravens wanted S Tony Jefferson back but sounds like he’s joining Giants.
