The Giants finally found somebody to keep while they continue to add depth to their roster in free agency.

They re-signed defensive end Kerry Wynn on Monday, making him the first player who has tested the free-agent market and returned to the Giants.

A defensive end who occasionally moved inside during his first four years with the Giants, he likely will play that position in the new 3-4 scheme.

The new regime initially was unimpressed by Wynn, according to a source, and was going to let him walk away in free agency. But after re-watching his tape, the Giants changed their mind.

The Giants also signed defensive end Josh Mauro, wide receiver Cody Lattimer and cornerback B.W. Webb.

Mauro is the second former Cardinals player under new defensive coordinator James Bettcher to join the Giants in a week, joining linebacker Kareem Martin.

Lattimer, a second-round pick by the Broncos in 2014, played four years for Denver. He has caught a total of only 35 passes in his career but has been a strong special-teams gunner and averaged 24.4 yards on 18 kickoff returns.

Webb played for four different teams from 2013-16. He did not play in a game in 2017 but was on the Browns’ roster for one week in December. His most recent game action came as a member of the Saints.
