East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The New York Giants signed free agent offensive tackle Barry Stokes on Sunday. As per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Stokes, played the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, playing left guard as well as left tackle.

Stokes is the second Cleveland player that the Giants have signed away this off-season. He will be reunited with teammate and center Shaun O'Hara, who the Giants signed last week.

The seven-year pro, Stokes has played for seven teams in his career. He signed with the Browns in 2002, starting 13 games at left tackle, before an ankle injury caused him to miss two games.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is somewhat familiar with Stokes. Stokes played for Coughlin when he was head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, playing on the practice squad back in 1996.

Hopefully the Giants don't start thinking they have their offensive line problems solved and decide against drafting Robert Gallery with the fourth pick...

That's what I've been thinking slow. We pick up guys from the only OL that was as bad as ours last year? I think they are just bringing in a ton of extra guys into training camp to test them out.
