New York Giants sign former Eskimos defender Kenny Ladler

The New York Giants are signing for Edmonton Eskimos defender Kenny Ladler.

Ladler was a CFL all-star at cover linebacker in 2017. He made 86 tackles, intercepted three passes and recovered two fumbles in 17 games. 2016 saw Ladler make 70 tackles, two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown and one forced fumble in 17 games.

That earned Ladler a contract from the Washington Redskins where he spent training camp, made the practice squad and elevated to the active roster in September playing five games making six tackles before he was released on November 6.

The Vanderbilt product was signed as an undrafted free agent by Buffalo in 2014 playing two games for the Bills recording four tackles, but he was released after training camp in 2015.
