"The Terminator" is back in New Jersey -- East Rutherford, that is.

The Giants signed former Jets fullback John Conner to replace Henry Hynoski, who was placed on injured reserve.

Conner was a breakout star for the Jets during the 2010 filming of "Hard Knocks," earning "The Terminator" nickname from Rex Ryan due to his physical style of play. Conner, who was hampered by knee and hamstring injuries last season, was waived by the Jets in Oct. 2012. He later signed with the Bengals -- and was featured on this summer's "Hard Knocks" series -- but was released during the team's 53-man roster cuts.
