Giants ink Emmons and Robbins to bolster defense

Postby WebHamster » Sat Mar 06, 2004 2:00 am

East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The New York Giants signed free agent linebacker Carlos Emmons and defensive tackle Fred Robbins to contracts on Friday.

The 30-year-old Emmons spent the last four years with the Giants' NFC East Division-rival Philadelphia Eagles. One of the more coveted linebackers on the free agent market, Emmons recorded a career-high 84 tackles in 2003.

However, Emmons missed the Eagles' last regular-season game and both playoff contests after being placed on injured reserve with a broken fibula.

Emmons, who spent the first four years of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, has 441 tackles, 17 sacks and four interceptions in 111 career NFL games.

"Emmons was the MVP of the Eagles defense this past season and he will be a big addition to our defense. He hasn't been pleasant to play against," Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi said.

The Giants also inked defensive tackle Fred Robbins, a four-year pro from the Minnesota Vikings.

"Robbins is a big man and a run stopper who will play in our tackle rotation," Accorsi added.

The 26-year-old Robbins has not missed a game in three seasons, recording 90 tackles with 3.5 sacks in 56 contests overall.
