New York Giants sign another offensive lineman | What does Jamil Douglas bring?

The New York Giants have already signed multiple offensive linemen to bolster the trenches this off-season, including Mark Glowinski, Jon Feliciano, and Matt Gono.

However, new general manager Joe Schoen continued his streak of signings on Friday night, bringing in Jamil Douglas, pending a physical. At 6’4″ and 310 pounds, Douglas was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 4th round of the 2015 NFL draft.

Douglas has just over 1000 career offensive snaps, spending time in Tennessee and Buffalo over the last two seasons. Douglas only played two snaps last season with the Bills under Brian Daboll’s leadership.

With the Giants having one of the worst-ranked pass-blocking units in football last year, injecting more talent was a necessity. Douglas will likely compete on the back-end at guard, but he has experience at both left guard, center, and right guard.

At the very least, Schoen has done a good job bringing in players who can compete at multiple positions, which was essential given how poor the Giants were at center and both guard spots in 2021.

I wouldn’t expect Douglas to be earning any more than a veteran minimum deal, but given his familiarity with Buffalo’s system and coaching staff, he should help make the transition a bit easier for new management.
