"Tom Coughlin was asked about new fullback John Conner, a former Jet, this morning.
We need a fullback, we need a lead blocker," Coughlin said. "He is a physical guy. We think he'll go up in the hole and clear the hole for the running back and we hope he'll be a good pass protector and contribute on special teams as well."
He was cut by the Bengals in August and had been a free agent. He'll replace Henry Hynoski, who has been placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury."
