The New York Giants have reportedly signed offensive tackle and former top NFL Draft pick D.J. Fluker to a one-year deal.

Offensive lineman and former 2013 11th overall pick D.J. Fluker will join the New York Giants. Financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, but is reportedly a one-year contract.

Fluker visited with New York with the expectation that if the meeting went well he would sign with the team. His one season pact with the Giants will probably end up being of the “prove it” variety, with short money guaranteed.

The 25-year old has experience playing both guard and tackle, a skill the O-line needy Giants desperately need. Though he never lived up to the billing of a top-15 overall selection during his tenure with the San Diego Chargers, he’ll get a chance to revive his career in the Big Apple.

Fluker is currently penciled in as the team’s starting right guard, though it is probable the team also re-signs last year’s starter at the position John Jerry.

Jerry and Fluker will battle it out in training camp for the starting spot, with the loser of the competition likely serving as the team’s swing offensive lineman.
