The Giants announce their UDFA additions


The New York Giants announced Friday morning that they’ve officially signed seven undrafted free agents.

The announcement, which came shortly before the first practice of rookie mini-camp took place, included OG Jake Kubas, OT Marcellus Johnson, WR Ayir Asante, WR John Jiles, EDGE Ovie Oghoufo, DL Casey Rogers, and PK Jude McAtamney.


It’s worth noting that the Giants signed McAtamney, who was born and raised in Northern Ireland, as an “Exempt/International” player, so he doesn’t count against their 90-man roster. The Giants also announced that RB Deon Jackson was released in a corresponding roster move to make room for WR Allen Robinson.


Each of the undrafted players were offered guaranteed money to sign with the Giants after the draft. We’ll list how much each got when he signed his contract.


Jake Kubas (RG, North Dakota State) – $270,000

Kubas had 41 consecutive starts at right guard prior to injury. He has a long and athletic frame for a guard and is a natural fit in a zone blocking scheme. Kubas moves well and is a very tough blocker up front. The Giants obviously like him, and he might realistically compete for a reserve guard job.Marcellus Johnson (OL, Missouri) – $170,000

Johnson transferred from Eastern Michigan to Mizzou in 2023 to show that he could hang with the big school players. The former left tackle didn’t get that chance, as his season was largely derailed by an ankle injury. He has a stocky frame and might not have the foot quickness to stay at tackle in the NFL. He could move inside at guard and compete with Kubas.

John Jiles (WR, West Florida) – $100,000

Jiles is a big, long wide receiver with a massive catch radius thanks to his 6-foot-3, 222 pound frame and 34-inch arms. He isn’t particularly quick or fast, but his size stands out on the Giants’ offense.
