The Giants have signed center J.D. Walton (Klis, March 12).
The 26-year-old suffered a dislocated ankle on September 30, 2012, knocking him out for the rest of the season. He hasn’t played since.
The Broncos cut Walton in December (Smith, December 17). Walton has started all 36 games he’s played in over his four-year career.

This should not be taken as a sign that the Giants are out of Evan Dietrich-Smith / Brian De La Puente stakes, but rather the Giants trying to find a bargain, lightning in a bottle so to speak. With David Baas and Jim Cordle gone, the team is looking for several candidates to fill the spot. Walton will be given a shot, and would be a real steal if he pans out.
