Mike Remmers is officially a Giant.
The team formally announced the signing Tuesday, and the expectation is that the 30-year-old will assume the starting right tackle job in a revamped right side of the line that includes guard Kevin Zeitler.
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported last week the deal is a one-year, $2.5 million contract. Remmers is guaranteed $1 million and also has another $1.5 million in incentives, which would make the deal worth a maximum of $4 million.
Offseason back surgery delayed Remmers' signing with any team, hence why he wasn't quickly scooped up when free agency began in March.
