The Giants officially announced on Monday the signing of four tryout players from this weekend's rookie minicamp, including former Stony Brook University tight end Will Tye. Newsday reported the signing of Tye on Saturday.

The other players signed are running back Kenneth Harper of Temple, wide receiver Ben Edwards of Richmond, and defensive tackle Carlif Taylor of Southern Connecticut State. Taylor, a New York City native, played at Cardinal Hayes High School.

To make room for them on the 90-man roster, the Giants terminated the contract of running back Chris Ogbannaya and waived linebacker James Davidson and safety Thomas Gordon.
