SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah State linebacker Kyler Fackrell has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Giants.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Fackrell will join the Giants on a one-year deal worth $4.6 million.

The Mesa, Arizona native spent his first four seasons of his NFL career with Green Bay after the Packers selected Fackrell in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

During his tenure with the Packers, Fackrell recorded 111 tackles, including 21 tackles for loss, 16.5 sacks, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 61 games played.

After his sophomore season, Fackrell was named second team All-Mountain West. He suffered a season ending injury during his junior year after just one game.

The Giants finished the 2019 season with a 4-12 record and was third in the NFC East standings.
