Giants sign former Cowboys LB Dan Connor
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Dan Connor has signed with the New York Giants as a free agent.
The Giants announced the signing of the former Penn State product Saturday without disclosing details.
Connor can play both inside and outside, so his signing casts some doubt on whether New York will bring back middle linebacker Chase Blackburn, who is a free agent.
Connor started five games at middle linebacker for Dallas last season, making 56 tackles. He also started three games at weakside linebacker. He played his first four seasons with the Carolina Panthers.
