The New York Giants added defensive lineman Terrence Fede to their roster. The Marist College alum spent four seasons with the Miami Dolphins.

The New York Giants have added defensive end Terrence Fede to their roster on Saturday. Team writer Dan Salomone confirmed the signing.

In a corresponding move, the team placed linebacker Mark McLaurin on injured reserve. The undrafted rookie fractured his foot after he was inadvertently stepped on during practice last weekend, according to Newsday’s Tom Rock.

The signing serves as a bit of a homecoming for Fede. The 27-year-old defender hails from Nyack, NY and starred at Nyack High School. He would then move on to Poughkeepsie’s Marist College where he set numerous program records.

Fede went on to become Marist’s first NFL draft pick. He was chosen in the seventh round (234th overall) of the 2014 draft by the Miami Dolphins. His most memorable NFL moment came in a December win against Minnesota during his rookie season. Fede blocked a Jeff Locke punt that went into the back of the end zone in the final minute of a 37-35 Miami win.

Fede would tally 55 tackles and one sack in four seasons with the Dolphins. He spent the 2018 offseason with the Buffalo Bills but did not make the Week 1 roster.

The Giants will open their 2019 preseason slate on Thursday night as they battle the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium (7:00 p.m. ET, WNBC/NFL Network).
