Giants sign former Pierre-Paul teammate George Selvie

AP Sports Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants have signed George Selvie, a college teammate of Jason Pierre-Paul, to help strengthen their defensive line.

The Giants announced the signing on Friday. Contract terms were not immediately available.

Selvie and Pierre-Paul were together at South Florida and it's conceivable they could go into the season as the Giants' starting defensive ends in September.

The Giants placed a franchise tag on Pierre-Paul earlier this month and are hoping to sign him to a long-term contract.

Selvie has played in 68 regular-season games with 29 starts in five seasons for St. Louis, Carolina, Jacksonville and Dallas. His career totals include 126 tackles, 13 sacks, three forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.

Selvie played in all 16 games for the Cowboys last season, starting the final 13 at left end and both playoff games.
