The Giants have re-signed center Spencer Pulley, who had been scheduled to be a restricted free agent, to a new deal, a source confirms.
The 6-4, 308-pound Pulley, whom the Giants acquired off waivers at the start of last season stepped in at center for the Giants in Week 7 for John Greco. Pulley went on to start nine of the Giants remaining 10 games, missing only the Week 16 game at Indianapolis due to a calf strain.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Pulley’s deal is a three-year, $9.6 million extension. Per another source, Pulley’s deal has $2.325 million in guaranteed money for 2019.
Last week, the Giants had signed Jon Halapio, who opened last season as their starting center before suffering a fractured ankle in Week 2 of the season to an exclusive rights free agent tender of $645,000.
Halapio is believed to be ahead of schedule in his rehab, but given the money paid to Pulley, it would be hard to imagine Pulley not entering the 2019 season as the incumbent starting center.
