The addition of Grimble caps off the Giants' round-up of 10 undrafted rookie free agents, including the previous signings of defensive tackles Eathyn Manumaleuna (BYU) and Kelcy Quarles (South Carolina), defensive ends Kerry Wynn (Richmond), Emmanuel Dieke (Georgia Tech) and Jordan Stanton (James Madison), linebackers Justin Anderson (Louisiana-Lafayette) and Dan Fox (Notre Dame), and safeties Thomas Gordon (Michigan) and C.J. Barnett (Ohio State).
As a result of all these signings, the team was also forced to make a few cuts. Among them were quarterback Rusty Smith, defensive backs Junior Mertile and Chaz Powell, punter Jordan Gay and linebacker Allen Bradford, who was claimed and awarded to the Jacksonville Jaguars off of waivers on Tuesday.
In addition to signing Grimble, the team was also awarded offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb off of waivers from the Buffalo Bills.
Johnson-Webb went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft, but was promptly signed by the Arizona Cardinals. He then bounced around to the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings and the aforementioned Buffalo Bills. He has no regular season experience.
