The New York Giants decided to bring back three of its exclusive-rights free agents on Wednesday, ESPN reported.

The Giants re-signed starting tight end Will Tye, tight end Matt LaCosse and defensive tackle Robert Thomas. ESPN reported the Giants told fullback Nikita Whitlock and wide receiver Ben Edwards they would not be back.

Tye will come back on a one-year, $650,000 contract, a source told the worldwide leader. The 25-year-old finished with 48 receptions for 395 yards and one touchdown in 10 games with New York. He ultimately bumped Larry Donnell out of a job with New York.

Thomas signed a one year-, $540,000 contract last Wednesday. The 25-year-old former Arkansas product played in just eight games for New York last season. Thomas could be the backup option if New York doesn’t re-sign Jonathan Hankins.

The terms of LaCosse’s deal weren’t disclosed.
