Former Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Byron Stingily signed a one-year free agent contract with the New York Giants on Monday and the details of that deal have now been made public by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
As expected, Stingily signed a Minimum Salary Benefit contract with the Giants that includes a base salary of $760,000. The tackle can also earn an additional $20,000 bonus should he ultimately make the Giants Week 1 53-man roster out of training camp.
Being as Stingily never played a down with the Steelers after he was signed to the roster to take the spot of injured tackle Kelvin Beachum, there’s no guarantee that he’ll stick with the Giants this year out of training camp. Even if he manages to do so, his contract shouldn’t qualify as a free agent loss when it comes to the league’s compensatory draft pick formula.
Stingily was originally drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Louisville. He started just 9 games in his four seasons with the Titans.
Byron Stingily one year Giants deal $780,000, $760,000 salary, $20,000 first game 53-man roster bonus, $428,000 full split
