Giants make 12 roster moves on eve of free agency

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants have tendered one-year contracts to nine restricted free agents on the eve of free agency.

The Giants announced Thursday that defensive linemen Barry Cofield and Dave Tollefson, offensive linemen Guy Whimper and Kevin Boothe, wide receivers Domenik Hixon, Sinorice Moss and Derek Hagan, linebacker Gerris Wilkinson and safety C.C. Brown were given the offers.

Cofield, Hixon and Tollefson received second-round tenders. Moss, Wilkinson, Hagan, Whimper and Boothe received an original-round tender, and Brown received a right of first refusal tender.

If another team signs any of these players to an offer sheet, the Giants will have seven days to match that offer. If the Giants choose not to match, they will receive the appropriate compensation from the respective team.

The Giants also tendered one-year contracts to three exclusive rights players: running back D.J. Ware, tight end Scott Chandler and defensive back D.J. Johnson.
