The New York Giants have replaced Justin Tuck with the free agent addition of defensive lineman Robert Ayers, who has penned a two-year deal at the MetLife Stadium.
According to NFL.com, the 28-year-old is deemed as a solid value signing for head coach Tom Coughlin at this stage of free agency, as the Giants continue to plug holes in their defense.
The former Denver Broncos star recorded a career-best 5.5 sacks in 15 games - and just three starts - last season, finishing his five-year stay in the Mile High City in fine form, after being selected in the first round of the NFL draft back in 2009.
Ayers is regarded as a good run defender, who will compliment Mathais Kiwanuka and Damontre Moore well opposite Jason Pierre-Paul.
Moore is coming off the back of a disappointing rookie season in East Rutherford, but will hopefully raise his game with the presence of Ayers in the Giants' set-up.
