DeOssie, Koets sign contract extensions with Giants

The New York Giants signed long snapper Zak DeOssie and offensive lineman Adam Koets to two-year contract extensions over the weekend, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora confirmed.

Koets' deal includes a $360,000 signing bonus and averages $1 million a year, a league source told La Canfora. Koets will earn a base salary of $705,000 in 2011 and a base of $840,000 in 2012, according to La Canfora.

Koets, who filled in for injured center Shaun O'Hara for four weeks earlier this season, tore a knee ligament on Sunday, one day after signing the deal. He was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

*The Newark Star-Ledger* reported that DeOssie's new contract includes a higher salary for the current season and is worth a total of $3.3 million.

The Giants also activated offensive lineman Kevin Boothe off of the physically-unable-to-perform list and waived wide receiver Sinorice Moss off injured reserve.

Moss played in just 37 games and caught only 39 passes in four-plus seasons after being a second-round draft choice in the 2006 draft. He went on injured reserve at the final cutdown after having sports hernia surgery. His being waived means he was healthy enough to pass a physical.
