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.
