The New York Giants signed former Carolina Panthers receiver Louis Murphy, adding speed to their receiving corps.

Murphy, 25, caught 25 passes for 336 yards and one touchdown for the Panthers last season. He has run the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds, the team said on its website.

Giants’ receiver Hakeem Nicks underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in February, and Victor Cruz, the team’s reception leader in 2012, is a restricted free agent.
