The Giants continue to work on their offensive line in free agency.

New York agreed to terms with versatile lineman John Jerry on a three-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday. The deal is worth $10 million with $4.25 million in guarantees, Rapoport added.

Jerry is entering his eighth year as a pro after being drafted by the Dolphins in the third round in 2010. He has played in all 48 games since joining the Giants prior to the 2014 season, earning 40 starts in that time.

The move comes two days after they added offensive tackle D.J. Fluker from the Chargers.

Here are some other moves we are tracking on day five of free agency:

5. The deal that brought former Buccaneers wideout Russell Shepard to the Panthers is a three-year pact, Rapoport reported. The deal is worth $10 million, with $2.1 million guaranteed, Rapoport added, with incentives bringing the maximum to $13 million.

7. Colts running back Robert Turbin is staying in Indianapolis on a two-year deal worth up to $4.1 million, Rapoport reported.
