According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, the Giants had offered Hankins a four-year deal for $28 million. The defensive tackle’s agent had asked for a deal with $15 million annually but reduced the demand to $10 million after realizing the market wasn’t there.

The Colts signed Hankins to a three-year, $30 million deal, which includes $15.9 million in guaranteed money and $10.5 million in the first year.

“I want to thank the Giants organization for giving me the opportunity to play the game I love. Especially, to the Mara and Tisch families for welcoming me and supporting me the last four years,” Hankins tweeted. “Thank you to my teammates for going to battle every game with me. I appreciate everything this organization has given me and my family. Thank you to all of the fans, I will never forget Big Blue Nation.”

The defensive tackle was drafted by Big Blue in 2013. He had 43 tackles, three sacks, eight tackles for a loss and ten quarterback hits last year. He also has 140 tackles, ten sacks, and three forced fumbles throughout his career.

This departure could hurt the Giants defense, which allowed the second-fewest points in the NFL last season, but will likely help them fill holes elsewhere with more cap space.
