Football Giants Sign Safety Jeromy Miles by Guest July 15, 2015 The Giants have signed free agent safety Jeromy Miles to a one-year contract, the team announced Wednesday. The former Raven had a quiet offseason, having some talks with Baltimore early on before ultimately landing with the Giants. That Miles went unsigned this long is somewhat surprising. Miles received a positive grade from Pro Football Focus in 2014, ranking seventh among free agent safeties. Miles played in all 16 games for the Ravens last year, accumulating 26 tackles, one interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery while serving as the team’s third safety.

Despite being signed this late in the offseason, Miles should have a good shot at making an impact in 2015. Not only does he have experience playing under new Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo (who was the Ravens’ defensive backs coach last year), but the Giants also had a need for another safety. Last year’s top two safeties, Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown, departed in free agency, and third safety Quintin Demps remains a free agent. It leaves second-round rookie Landon Collins and second-year Nat Berhe in line to start. Behind them are Cooper Taylor, who missed last season with a foot injury, Bennett Jackson, who is converting to safety after starting his career as a cornerback and Mykkele Thompson, a rookie fifth-rounder out of Texas. Miles has 67 games of professional experience. The rest of the Giants’ safeties have just 26. Collins, the No. 33 overall pick, seems to be a lock to start at strong safety, but Miles could push Berhe for free safety duties. Even if he doesn’t win the starting job, Miles should still see plenty of playing time as the third safety. Miles went undrafted out of UMass in 2010, but latched on with the Cincinnati Bengals that Summer. He spent over three seasons with the Bengals before being waived in September of 2013. The division rival Ravens claimed him, and he mostly contributed on special teams in 2013 before seeing more defensive snaps in 2014. To make room on the roster, the Giants also announced that they waived wide receiver Marcus Harris and safety Justin Currie.
