Several outlets have reported that the former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman had reached an agreement with the New York Giants on a one-year contract. A short time later, Feliciano personally verified the news by retweeting a tweet from the Giants’ official account announcing the agreement and adding, in part, “Let’s get to work!”
The Bills dropped 30-year-old center Feliciano last week to save just under $3.5 million in salary cap space. It’s not surprising that he’s going to New York, where he’ll work with Giants head coach Brian Daboll, who was the offensive coordinator for the Bills for the past four years. Bobby Johnson, who coached the offensive line for the Bills the previous three seasons, will now be Feliciano’s coach with the Giants.
Feliciano, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall and 325 pounds, has spent the previous three seasons with the Buffalo Bills. During his time with the Bills, he started 31 games during the regular season and another four in the playoffs.
When Feliciano re-upped with the Bills in March 2021, the deal was worth a maximum of $14.4 million over three years. However, he only played out the first year of the contract. In 2021, he had a terrible season, missing Week 4’s victory over Houston due to a concussion and then ending up on injured reserve with a calf injury.
