Gaints sign veteran defensive back David Long Jr.

David Long

The New York Giants on Wednesday signed free agent defensive back David Long Jr., who played for three NFL teams and started for two in 2023.

Long, 26, has played primarily cornerback, starting 12 of 66 regular-season games for the Los Angeles Rams (2019-22), Las Vegas Raiders (2023), Carolina Panthers (2023) and Green Bay Packers (2023). He started one game each for the Raiders and Packers.

He has 96 career tackles and eight passes defended.

The Rams selected him in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Michigan. He started in Super Bowl LVI, a 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Long and veteran free-agent signing Jalen Mills are expected to bring experience to a Giants secondary that added safety Tyler Nubin and cornerback Andru Phillips in the draft last weekend.
