Earlier today, the New York Giants signed safety David Caldwell to a future/reserve contract. Caldwell last played with the Indianapolis Colts back in 2011. He started 13 games and had 67 tackles for the Colts that season and didn’t play for anyone this season. Caldwell was brought in by the Giants for a workout back in September when they were looking for some additional depth at certain positions.
Caldwell can give the team some additional depth at the safety spot. With Kenny Phillips impending free agency, and Stevie Brown being a restricted free agent, the Giants could use some additional depth at the safety position, especially someone with starting experience in the league. Besides Antrel Rolle, the only safeties they have are Tyler Sash and Will Hill.
Caldwell is from Montclair, New Jersey, so the Giants add another local kid to the squad. Caldwell was part of the Colts final cuts this past season.
Caldwell may help them in special teams next season, or he may not be with the team at all. He went to William & Mary for college and went undrafted when the Colts added him as a free agent.
I can’t see Caldwell doing much for the Giants. I think, if anything he will be a special teams guy and maybe some depth, nothing more. They’ll probably give him a look in training camp.
Here’s Caldwell’s tweet confirming the signing:
I guess dreams can come true twice!
