Mathias Kiwanuka Staying With New York Giants

The New York Giants are getting one of their many defensive stalwarts back, according to another one of their defensive stalwarts: Justin Tuck has tweeted that Mathias Kiwanuka will re-sign with the Giants for the 2011 season, and ESPN New York's Ohm Youngmisuk has confirmed Tuck's "report."

Terms of the deal have not been released. Kiwanuka was coveted as a potential infusion of pass-rushing ability for any number of teams, including the New England Patriots.

Kiwanuka has been on the rise, going from a reserve in his first two years in the NFL to a starter in 2008 and 2009. And he got his 2010 off to an even better start, recording four sacks in three games — Kiwanuka had 19.5 sacks in 58 NFL games prior to 2010 — before suffering a herniated disc that eventually led to him being placed on injured reserve.
