Tom Linson started all the games in New York as the Giants chose him in the second round of the 2017 draft.
The 27-year-old has achieved 3.5 sack and 49 tackle in East Rutherford in the last two seasons, respectively. In 2020 he lost his career’s best 10QB hits and 8 tackles. He also played 60% of the Giants’ defense spray in 2020, recording the best snap of his career.
However, Tom Linson appears to have been a victim of a salary cap after the Giants franchised fellow defensive lineman Leonard Williams. The Giants are working to sign Williams in the long run and rebuild the aggressive tackle Nate Solder contract to create a cap space. Neither of these transactions has been realized yet.
Upon joining the free agent, the Giants’ salary cap space was just over $ 2 million, leaving little room to chase Tom Linson.
But they got some form of insurance on Monday, Austin Johnson Inking Veteran Defensive Tackle..
In the news of other free agents, the Giants too Signed backup running DevontaeBooker.. The Giants will pay Booker $ 6 million over two years.
Booker’s deal could mean that Wayne Gallman, Dion Lewis and Alfred Morris (all free agents) will not return to the Giants in 2021.
