Giants promote CB Fabian Moreau and S Tony Jefferson

The New York Giants have announced that they are activating CB Fabien Moreau and S Tony Jefferson from practice squad to active roster.

Moreau, 28, is a former Washington third-round pick in 2017. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.33 million contract, which included an $825,392 signing bonus.

He was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career when he signed with the Atlanta Falcons in 2021. He signed a one-year contract with the Texans in May.

In 2021, Moreau appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 61 tackles, one fumble recovery and 11 pass deflections.

Jefferson, 30, originally signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent from Oklahoma in 2013. He played out his rookie deal in Arizona before signing a four-year, $34 million deal that included $19 million guaranteed with the Ravens in 2017.

Jefferson was slated for a base salary of $7 million for the 2020 season when the Ravens released him in the offseason. The 49ers signed him to contract last June, but he ended up on injured reserve and was released with a settlement.

The Ravens signed Jefferson to their practice squad last December and he was on and off their roster to close out the season, reneging on a deal for the 2022 season.

In 2021, Jefferson appeared in six games for the Ravens and recorded 16 tackles, one sack and one pass deflection.
