EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The New York Giants signed free-agent receiver Brandon Marshall to a two-year contact.

The former Jets receiver tweeted a picture of the signed contract Wednesday with the headline: “Done Deal!!!! (hash)GMEN.”

The signing gives the Giants a talented outside receiver to play opposite Odell Beckham Jr. New York used Victor Cruz on the outside last season but being a slot receiver, he was playing out of position.

The Jets released Marshall less than a week ago, making him eligible to sign with any team before the start of free agency Thursday.

Marshall, who will turn 33 this month, had 59 catches for 788 yards and three touchdowns last season.

BILLS: Quarterback Tyrod Taylor will remain the starter after the team announced it restructured his five-year contract extension.

The move was made a day before the NFL’s free-agency period began and before the Bills faced a Saturday deadline to determine whether to pick up the extension Taylor signed in August or part ways with the two-year starter.

WASHINGTON: The team re-signed tight end Vernon Davis to a three-year contract.

Davis, 33, revitalized his career last season with Washington, starting 14 games, and catching 44 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns. In 11 NFL seasons, he has 505 receptions for 6,424 yards and 57 touchdowns.

RAVENS: Linebacker Elvis Dumervil was cut by Baltimore, which was looking to free up salary-cap room before the start of free agency.

Dumervil missed eight games last season because of injuries and finished with only three sacks. Two years earlier, he set the team single-season record with 17 sacks.

JAGUARS: The team owner, Shad Khan, said he plans to keep adding resources “until we have a breakthrough.”

Kahn, a billionaire businessman speaking at Jacksonville’s state of the franchise address, expressed frustration about the team’s lack of success in his five seasons. The Jaguars are a league-worst 17-63 during his tenure. They have scored the fewest points (1,445) in the NFL in those five years and allowed the most (2,153).

The Jaguars offered a one-year contract to restricted free-agent safety Peyton Thompson.

FALCONS: Atlanta tendered four restricted free agents, including starting safety Ricardo Allen and wide receiver Taylor Gabriel, who was a surprise breakout star in 2016.

The Falcons also tendered offensive guard Ben Garland and cornerback Akeem King.

LIONS: Detroit tendered defensive ends Kerry Hyder and Brandon Copeland, and wide receiver T.J. Jones.

PANTHERS: The team re-signed running back running back Fozzy Whittaker to a two-year contract.

Whittaker, 28, served as Jonathan Stewart’s backup last season in Carolina, and rushed for 265 yards and averaged a team-high 4.6 yards per carry.

DOLPHINS: Defensive end Andre Branch agreed to a $27 million, three-year contract to remain with Miami.

Branch, a five-year pro, was on the verge of becoming one of the top defensive ends on the market when free agency begins Thursday.
