Giants sign Walter Thurmond, Quintin Demps


The Giants are scheduled to meet with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday and they’ll be doing it with a newly signed cornerback already in their pocket.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Giants have agreed to terms with former Seahawks corner Walter Thurmond. It’s a one-year deal, per Schefter, and the Giants are still expected to meet with Rodgers-Cromartie.

With Thurmond joining Prince Amukamara and Trumaine McBride at cornerback, the Giants don’t need to break the bank to bring Rodgers-Cromartie into the fold. Should the price be right, though, they’d have one of the deeper cornerback groups in the league to throw out on the field against opposing offenses next season. That should come in handy whether or not the Giants are able to boost their pass rush over the rest of the offseason.

The early Sunday morning signing was part of a busy overnight for the Giants. Safety and kick returner Quintin Demps announced in the wee small hours of the morning that he signed with the Giants. Demps averaged over 30 yards per kick return in Kansas City last season and scored a touchdown, which is what the Giants will be looking for after missing out on Jacoby Jones earlier in free agency.
