New edge rusher Kyler Fackrell will be a huge boost to the Giants’ pass rush this season. The New York Giants signed edge rusher Kyler Fackrell to a one-year contract worth $4.6 million this offseason. Fackrell is 28 years old and has spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers. Kyler’s time in Green Bay give him a connection to Giants’ defensive coordinator Patrick Graham.
Kyler Fackrell has been inconsistent in his career, but the best season of his career was under the coaching of Patrick Graham. While working with Graham in 2018, Fackrell played 59% of the Packers’ defensive snaps, a career-high. Kyler also started in 7 games and played in all 16. In that 2018 season with a career-high in snaps, Kyler Fackrell recorded career-highs with 10.5 sacks, 42 combined tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and 18 pressures. An expanded role in 2020 could lead to another career-year for Fackrell with the Giants.
