The New York Giants made a minor transaction late Monday, signing punter Jordan Gay to a Reserve/Futures contract. He becomes the 14th player New York has signed to a Reserve/Futures contract since their season ended following Week 17.

Gay, a Centre College alumni, originally signed with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2013. He remained with the team straight through training camp and the preseason, but was released in late August as a part of final cuts.

At Centre, Gay handled both the punting and place-kicking duties, and was a three-time Southern Athletic Association Special Teams Player of the Year. He also holds seven school records.

“We are grateful for the opportunity that the Giants are giving him to compete for a job,” said his father, Jamey Gay, Centre’s head athletic trainer. “He officially signed today at lunch!”

Gay's 2014 cap number is expected to be $420,000.

As a result of his signing, we have updated our 2014 Free Agency Scorecard.
