The New York Giants made a pair of roster moves Wednesday, signing fullback John Conner and placing fullback Henry Hynoski on season-ending injured reserve because of a fractured shoulder.
Conner, 26, spent parts of the past three seasons with the New York Jets, who waived the former fifth-round pick last October.
Conner signed with the Cincinnati Bengals late last season but was cut prior to the start of this season.
The 245-pound Conner will replace Hynoski, who suffered a fractured left shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers.
"We need a fullback, we need a leading blocker," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "[Conner] is a physical guy -- we think he'll go up in the hole and clear the hole for the running back, and we hope he'll be a good pass protector and contribute on special teams as well."
Conner was a favorite of Jets coach Rex Ryan and became a reality-TV sensation during the team's 2010 appearance on HBO's "Hard Knocks."
Nicknamed "The Terminator" after the character of the same name in the "Terminator" movies, Conner was praised by Ryan for his blocking ability.
I saw one of the writers tweet it's a two year deal.
But I can't find the contract details anywhere. Yet.
