The New York Giants might find themselves the center of some NFL rumors in the next twenty-four hours as they try to make some final adjustments to their 53-man roster. Injuries to the Giants secondary have caused a little roster problem as they wait for cornerbacks Terrell Thomas, Jayron Hosley, and Prince Amukamara to get healthy. They already announced cornerback Bruce Johnson will be placed on injured reserve and safety Tyler Sash will start the year on the reserve/suspended list.
Enter Joselio Hanson, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles. Hanson has been one of the better slot corners in the NFL in recent years, something the Giants might be in the market for. Hanson did not survive the Eagles’ final round of cuts and wasn’t expected to be anything more than the teams nickel corner behind Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha. That job seems to have gone to rookie Brandon Boykin leaving Hanson without a roster spot.
The Giants showed interest in Hanson last season when he was released by the Eagles for a short time before being re-signed. Hanson has four career interceptions since joining the NFL in 2004 and might be a slight upgrade over whoever makes the likes of Michael Coe and Justin Tryon who are solid NFL players but are both coming off of injuries.
If the Giants are interested they might have some competition in trying to sign Hanson. The Detroit Lions, San Diego Chargers, and St. Louis Rams all might be interested in the 31-year-old corner as well.
