The New York Giants have been pretty active so far in free agency. They signed guard Geoff Schwartz, wide receiver Mario Manningham and kick returner Trindon Holiday to so along with defensive backs Walter Thurmond and Quintin Demps.
But according to a couple off writers at Giants.com, none of those players is the most surprising to join Big Blue this offseason. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie wins that debate.
"“ I just didn’t think the Giants could fit a top corner like this into their budget, but they were able to do just that,” wrote John Schmeelk. “The Giants secondary might now be the strength of their roster and one of the best units in the NFL. It will free up Perry Fewell to be very creative with blitz packages next season.”"
Fellow Giants.com writer Dan Salomone agreed with Schmeelk.
"“Whether it was the cap space or the two other defensive backs they signed the day before (Walter Thurmond and Quintin Demps), the Giants made a statement with DRC,” he wrote. “They will not be complacent after finishing as the No. 8 defense last season.”"
