Giants Sign Jarrod Wilson, Waive Jarren Williams


The New York Giants, when they got the news of the collarbone injury from rookie safety, Dane Belton, inked veteran defensive back Jarrod Wilson to help fill the void.

To make way for Wilson, defending defender Jarren Williams (hamstring) was waived/injured.

From the giants:

Wilson, 28, is a 6-1, 209-pounder who played his first five years for the Jacksonville Jaguars, splitting the 2021 season between the Jets and San Francisco 49ers. He played in 84 regular season games with 33 starts and appeared in four postseason games, including three for the Jaguars in 2017, when they advanced to the AFC Championship Game.

Wilson’s career totals include 176 tackles (126 solo), 12 tackles for losses, three interceptions, nine defended passes, 1.0 sack, two forced fumbles and one fumble at recovery. He defended two passes in the playoffs.

Wilson was an unwritten free agent from Michigan in 2016 and should provide the Giants with much-needed field experience and depth in the safety position.

They currently only have sophomores Xavier McKinney and the versatile Julian Love in the security position. They recently signed Andrew Adams, a former giant who has spent the past few seasons at Tampa Bay.

Belton is not expected back before the start of the regular season and will probably miss the first four games.

In addition to Wilson, the Giants also worked out Rodney Clemons defensively.
