On Wednesday, the New York Giants signed all six of their practice squad players to reserve/futures contracts. That was followed up on Thursday when they signed seven more players, including quarterback and former Indianapolis Colts 6th round pick (2009) Curtis Painter.

Painter, who played in Indianapolis for two seasons before joining the Baltimore Ravens in training camp of this past year, has appeared in 11 NFL games, completing 140 of 271 pass attempts (51.7%) for 1,624 yards, six touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

In addition to Painter, the team also signed guard and former Buffalo Bills 7th round pick (2011) Michael Jasper, wide receivers Brandon Collins and Kevin Hardy, defensive back and former Chicago Bears 7th round pick (2007) Trumaine McBride, defensive tackle Bobby Skinner and linebacker Jake Muasau.

"I am officially a New York Giant!!" Muasau tweeted upon being signed.

In 46 career games, McBride has 68 tackles, one interception and eight passes defended. He has played for both the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals, while spending time in camp or on the practice squad of the New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Of the players signed, Collins, Skinner and Muasau have all spent time with the Giants, with Collins and Muasau having opened quite a few eyes during training camp.
