DE-OLB Mathias Kiwanuka is re-signing with the Giants, according to a tweet by his teammate, DT Justin Tuck.

Tuck wrote on his account Thursday morning, "Kiwi is returning to the big blue. Yes sir." Mike Garafolo of the New Jersey Star-Ledger confirmed the report, stating that it was a two-year contract, pending a physical. No information on salary has been reported, though Garafolo states it is a incentive-laden deal.

Kiwanuka registered four sacks in the first three games last season, but missed the remainder of the year due to a herniated disk in his neck, forcing him to go on injured reserve.
