The New York Giants have added a familiar face to their defense in linebacker Brandon Short. Short spent the first four seasons if his career with the Giants before moving to the Carolina Panthers the past two years.

"The Giants have always been a class organization, and I'm happy to be back and be a part of it," Short said. "I have great memories of my time here."

The Giants are in desperate need of linebackers, which is one of their primary positions they'll be looking for in the draft. Short was originally a fourth-round draft pick in 2000 by the Giants. He was a starter the final three seasons he was with the Giants, but only started half of the games during his time with the Panthers.

During his career, Short has 350 tackles with 7.5 sacks and two interceptions. He has not missed a game since 2000, showing how durable he is.

"Brandon has played on winning teams his whole career, including with the New York Giants," said Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi. "He's a winner and a great teammate and it's terrific to have him back."

Short was released by the Panthers back on March 2nd. The Giants had a lot of injuries at linebacker last year, and hope that Short can fill in wherever they need him.
