GIANTS AGREE TO DEAL WITH JAYRON HOSLEY
"8:50 p.m. UPDATED to include Mosely deal.
With rookie minicamp set to begin on Friday, the Giants have reached an
agreement on a contract with another one of their draft picks: cornerback Jayron
The team's third-round pick will sign a four-year deal, according to someone
informed of the progress of negotiations. The person requested anonymity because
the Giants haven't announced the contract yet.
Based on his slotting as the 94th overall pick, Hosley's deal will include a
signing bonus of $515,000.
Hosley, who left Virginia Tech after his junior season, had three
interceptions last season after recording nine as a sophomore. He and the Giants
said a big reason for the dip was because teams didn't throw his way that often.
In fact, Hosley said he left school early because college football was getting
"too easy" for him.
Hosley had concussion issues last season and failed a drug test at the
Scouting Combine but the Giants weren't concerned about either apparent red
flag. Hosley said he's learned his lesson from the failed test.
