Giants sign defensive back David Long Jr.

Long Jr. was drafted with the No. 79 overall pick in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams out of Michigan. In four career seasons, Long has totaled one interception, 96 combined tackles, and eight pass defenses.

Long will add depth to the Giants’ secondary in 2024

The 5-11 defensive back earned a two-year, $11 million deal with the Carolina Panthers ahead of the 2023 NFL season after departing from Tennessee. Long Jr. wound up playing for three different teams during the 2023 campaign, bouncing between the Panthers, Green Bay Packers, and Las Vegas Raiders.

The Giants have now added a competent contributor who can aid their defensive efforts and help improve a special teams unit that forced the third-fewest touchbacks in the league last season with 38.
