Giants re-signed restricted free agent WLB Spencer Paysinger to a one-year, $1.431 million contract.

Paysinger, 26 in June, started ten games last season, recording 74 tackles and a sack. He isn't particularly effective in run or pass defense, and would likely serve best in a fourth linebacker role. Expect Paysinger to face competition from Jameel McClain in training camp. Paysinger will be a free agent in 2015.
