Breaking down the new-look safety position for the New York Giants

The position with the most uncertainty heading into training camp for the New York Giants is unquestionably safety. Last year, Antrel Rolle started every game, like he did for the previous four years, while either Stevie Brown or Quintin Demps was lined up beside him. Now Rolle is in Chicago, Brown is in Houston, and Demps has yet to sign. That leaves the Giants with a lot of inexperience...

Stevie Brown, a 2010 7th round pick, played just 151 snaps combined in 2010 and 2011, but had a breakout year in 2012, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 27th ranked safety. Unfortunately for him, he tore his ACL and missed his entire contract year in 2013 and was forced to settle for a one year deal back with the Giants to rehab his value.

Texans Gave Up 200k To Cut Swearinger

The timing is weird, to say the least. DJ Swearinger was released by the Houston Texans yesterday. Swearinger himself announced the exit on his Instagram account hours before the Texans made it official. They did sign both Rahim Moore and Stevie Brown, but the safety position was already lacking depth in Houston. Cutting ties with "Swagg" means they have very few options. But let...

Landon Collins: I'm not just an in the box safety

The New York Giants entered this past weekend's draft without the top three safeties on their depth chart from the 2014 season. Quintin Demps remains unsigned, Stevie Brown bolted for the Texans, and long-tenured defensive leader Antrel Rolle made his way to the Bears.

Houston Texans: last minute early round projections

With only hours until the first round, nobody knows for sure what direction the Houston Texans are going to take in this year’s NFL draft.

They could draft a wide receiver, running back, offensive lineman...
