A source confirmed that New York Giants defensive end David Tollefson agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders. He will sign a two-year contract worth $2.5 million.
Tollefson was a great contributor for the Super Bowl winning Giants, but with players like Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, and Jason Pierre-Paul on the line, finding a bigger contract with the Giants would not have come easy. The Giants still have Mathias Kiwanuka to fill in the defensive end spot.
Tollefson is now the third Giants player to move to the Bay Area. Brandon Jacobs and Mario Manningham both recently joined the San Francisco 49ers.
Tollefson grew up in the Bay Area, so the surroundings will not be strange to him.
