East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The New York Giants signed offensive tackle Sean Locklear on Wednesday.

"It's exciting," said Locklear. "I was on the other end of two games against the Giants last year - followed them pretty well in their run to the Super Bowl. But, actually, when I got the call I was kind of excited about the chance to actually play in New York and who doesn't want to play with the team who just got done winning the Super Bowl? My thing is to just get in here and start fresh, start learning again and try to help this team get back to where they want to go."

Locklear, 30, played his first seven seasons with the Seattle Seahawks before spending last year with the Washington Redskins. He has appeared in 105 games (82 starts).
