The Giants acquired veteran help for their defensive line on Thursday, signing Jordan Phillips to a one-year deal.

The 31-year-old Phillips spent the last two seasons in his second stint with the Bills. Last season, he recorded 2.5 sacks, two tackles for loss, five QB hits and five passes defensed in 14 games with nine starts. He should represent a strong, experienced presence for new defensive coordinator Shane Bowen.

Defensive line depth is an issue for the Giants, who do not have much experience behind starters Dexter Lawrence and Rakeem Nunez-Roches. Phillips will join the rotation along with Jordon Riley and D.J. Davidson.

Phillips played collegiately at Oklahoma and was a second-round draft pick of the Dolphins in 2015. He has also played for the Cardinals.
