Bromley, the 74th pick overall, was is the final member of the Giants' 2014 draft class to sign, and although it remains unclear as to why his contract took so long, much speculation has centered around the belief that he desired a larger signing bonus.
In addition to Bromley, the team also announced that they had signed linebacker Terrell Manning, a three-year NFL veteran who has spent time with the Green Bay Packers, San Diego Chargers and, most recently, the Minnesota Vikings.
Manning gives the Giants depth at the position following the loss of Jon Beason, who will sit out 12 weeks after tearing a ligament and suffering a fracture to his right foot.
Manning takes the place of wide receiver Kris Adams, who was placed on the Reserve/PUP list last week, on the 90-man roster. And with the signing of Bromley, the team is officially at their max of 90 men (although Bromley had been with the team, the official tally had been 89 men).
Contract details were not immediately made public.
