Giants' Mark Herzlich: Inks deal to stay in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herzlich re-signed with the Giants on Monday, Dan Graziano of reports.

After missing just three games between 2012 and 2016, Herzlich spent all of last season on injured reserve due to a stinger. Barring any injuries to the starting linebackers, he figures to function as a backup this year with primary contributions on special teams.

Giants' Mark Herzlich: On injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herzlich (neck) was placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herzlich (neck) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

Giants' Mark Herzlich: Learning offense to help with depth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herzlich is learning the Giants' offense to help with depth at tight end,'s Dan Duggan reports.

At 6-foot-4, 246 pounds, Herzlich is the rare NFL linebacker who possesses adequate size to contribute as a blocking tight end. He's mostly contributed on special teams since signing with the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2011, and while that doesn't figure to change anytime soon, the added versatility should at least help his odds of sticking on the final roster for another year or two. The Giants presumably hope second-round rookie Evan Engram will earn the starting job at tight end.
