Giants sign CB Molden, former New England Patriot

Associated Press  |  Last updated April 16, 2012
Two months after losing to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, cornerback Antwaun Molden is now a member of Big Blue. The Giants announced Monday that they signed the former New England Patriots defensive back for what promises to be an interesting training camp in the backfield. Molden was claimed on waivers by the Patriots in September and appeared in all 19 games, making two starts. He had a career-high 28 tackles with two interceptions. Formerly of the Houston Texans, he also had 11 special teams tackles in the regular season and seven total in three postseason games. In New England's 21-17 loss to New York in Indianapolis, Molden had five total tackles. The Giants now have seven veteran cornerbacks - Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas, Prince Amukamara, Michael Coe, Bruce Johnson, Justin Tryon and Molden - as minicamp nears. ''It's exciting to be here,'' Molden said. ''I like everything about this situation. I like the coaching staff. When I was coming out of college, I liked the Giants. I liked the defense, I liked the players. They recruit good players. There's a team-first attitude. They're selfless. ''That's the blueprint for success and you see that here. That's what I want to be a part of.'' In 2010 with Houston, Molden played in 14 games, primarily on special teams, recording six tackles and a fumble recovery. He was limited to four games in 2009 because of a quadriceps injury that forced him to go on injured reserve. As a rookie in 2008, he played in 14 games and finished second on the Texans with 19 special teams tackles. Molden suffered a broken ankle late in that season and was placed on injured reserve. Molden was the Texans' third-round draft choice in 2008, the 79th overall selection, out of Eastern Kentucky.
