Reports: Giants Add Walter Thurmond, Quintin Demps
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Giants have added a pair of new faces to their secondary, and they might not be done yet.
Big Blue has reportedly reached deals with former Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond and ex-Chiefs safety/kick returner Quintin Demps.
Thurmond will return to the same stadium where he celebrated a Super Bowl championship just last month. His contract is reportedly for one year. The terms of the deal are not yet known.
Thurmond, 26, started three regular-season games, intercepting one pass, which he returned for a touchdown. He was suspended for four games last season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
The Giants also scheduled a visit for Sunday with Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, a meeting that is reportedly still set to take place.
Big Blue has also re-signed cornerback Trumaine McBride, who started 10 games last year.
Demps, 28, started six games at safety for Kansas City in 2013, intercepting four passes. He also returned 33 kickoffs for a 30.1-yard average with one touchdown.
On Saturday night, Demps tweeted, “Gr8ful for another opportunity to play a game for a living. It’s truly a privilege” and linked to a photo of the Giants logo.
