    GIANTS ONE OF THREE TEAMS INTERESTED IN VETERAN SAFETY DEON GRANT

    GIANTS ONE OF THREE TEAMS INTERESTED IN VETERAN SAFETY DEON GRANT

    "Could veteran safety Deon
    Grant
    make a late offseason return to the New York
    Giants
    for the second consecutive year? It's certainly a possibility says
    Grant, who revealed during an interview with SiriusXM on Sunday that the Giants,
    Detroit
    Lions and Dallas
    Cowboys have all expressed interest in him.


    Grant added that he's in no rush to sign, and is just waiting for the right
    opportunity.




    The 11-year veteran has spent the last two seasons with the Giants, returning
    a year ago in mid-August following a string of injuries to their secondary. He
    went on to play all 16 games for the Giants, who often employed a three-safety
    look, recording 64 tackles, one sack and one interception.




    Given the current health and depth at cornerback for the Giants, it's
    unlikely that they'll showcase a similar three-safety look this season. However,
    having recently waived Chad Jones and with questionable depth behind Kenny
    Phillips, Antrel Rolle and Tyler Sash, signing Grant for training camp
    competition and leadership wouldn't be such a bad decision.




    Should Grant end up re-signing with the Giants, it would likely be a one-year
    deal for the veteran minimum."

    BRONCOS MAY BE INTERESTED IN DEON GRANT

    "The Denver Broncos may pursue free agent safety Deon
    Grant
    (6-2, 215 lbs.), according to one NFL insider. Grant, 33,
    started in nine games with the New York Giants last season and
    received a Super Bowl XLVI ring following New York’s 21-17 win over the
    New England Patriots.



    “I’ve heard the Broncos may have interest (in Grant),” ESPN NFL
    Insider Cecil Lammey Tweeted on Sunday afternoon. The Giants and Detroit
    Lions
    are also reportedly interested in Grant’s services.




    Grant was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the second
    round (57th overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft and spent two years with the Panthers
    during John Fox‘stenurein Carolina (2003-’04). Fox is now
    the head coach in Denver and Grant is a free agent.




    Over the past two seasons in New York, Grant played in all 32 games (with 17
    starts) and recorded 136 tackles, two sacks, four interceptions, two forced
    fumbles and defended 16 passes. Grant joined the Giants in 2010 after stints
    with the Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle
    Seahawks
    .




    The Broncos secondary isn’t getting any younger, but Grant could provide
    solid veteran experience in Denver. Earlier in the offseason, Brian Dawkins (38) retired and Denver signed fellow veteran Mike Adams (31). Adams will presumably start across from
    Quinton Carter (23) in the back-end of Denver’s secondary this
    season.




    Adams and Carter are joined by David Bruton, Rafael
    Bush
    ,Duke Ihenacho and Rahim Moore
    as the six safeties currently on the Broncos’ roster. Bruton has been with the
    Broncos since 2009, Bush joined the Broncos last season as a rotational
    defensive back, Inhenacho signed as an undrafted college free agent in April and
    Moore was drafted by the team in the second round of last year’s draft.




    There will be a lot of competition in the secondary during training camp this
    summer and the acquisitionof another safety would add more intensity to the
    camp battle. Grant would likely provide special teams depth and become the
    third safety on Denver’s depth chart if signed."

    He's a great leader. I would love to have him back.

    He's also good value for the vet min.

    I hope they can bring him back in. He was a good veteran voice in the locker room.

    I was adamate on him returning last year when many overlooked it, but I just think it'd be much better if he just retires.

    Id welcome him back but dunno how hed get on the field unless injuries stack up...

    Tt is gonna move into the role grant gave us, and likely do a better job.
    grants a great leader and teammate, but there were several instances where u could see he lost a few steps and he ended up costing us some big plays/points

    I'd just like him to have the opportunity to compete in camp.
