He signed a three-year, $19.5 million contract, but all of the skill guarantees are in the final year of the deal. He has a $3 million injury guarantee in Year 2, which the Bucs could get out of if they find the proper replacement.

Giants | George Selvie likely a rotational player

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 13:15:05 -0700

New York Giants DE George Selvie will likely be a rotational player on the defensive line in 2015 under defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. The Giants really like DE Damontre Moore, and DE Robert Ayers is also another rotational piece with Selvie. DT Kenrick Ellis will likely play on early downs. Spagnuolo loves to load up on four pass rushers on passing downs, and Selvie gives them another piece to be creative with.
