The New York Giants announced the addition of safety Mike Basile to the 90-man roster on Wednesday.

Safety Mike Basile played his college ball at Monmouth after growing up in Brick, N.J. and will now pursue a professional career in the Garden State.

Basile was a first-team FCS All-American last year and left school as the all-time leader in tackles. He had 126 total tackles and 9.5 tackles for loss during his senior season.

Basile fills the roster spot that opened when cornerback Teddy Williams requested his release in order to deal with a "family health issue."

The Indianapolis had Basile in for a tryout after the draft, but he was not signed.
