DeGeare was drafted out of Wake Forrest University by the Vikings in 2010 and appeared in eight games with the team. He was let go by Minnesota in 2011 after spending the entire year on the practice squad. He spent all of 2012 on the Tennessee Titans practice squad as well.
The Giants have now signed a total of 15 players to reserve/ future contracts since the conclusion of their 2012 campaign. Obviously, it's unlikely that any of these players emerge as significant contributors. However, part of being successful in the NFL is finding the a system that suits the skill-set of a particular player. The Giants are smart for proactively pursuing players that they think could potentially help them in 2013.
However, most of these new acquisitions will amount to nothing more than extra bodies at training camp.
