Giants still looking for corners, checking out Leon Hall

The Giants signed an expensive free agent, and used their top draft pick on a cornerback.

But they still need help there, so they’re still looking.

Via Mike Garafolo of, the Giants are hosting veteran corner Leon Hall today.

The Giants threw a pile of money at Janoris Jenkins as part of their defensive splurge, and then turned the 10th pick in the draft into Eli Apple.

But other than Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Giants don’t have much else of substance there.

Hall has visited the Cardinals and Cowboys this offseason, but hasn’t found work yet. The 31-year-old is recovering from back surgery this offseason, which has likely delayed his employment, since he’s played well for the Bengals in the slot when he’s well.

  1. Maybe the Giants should hire Trent Baalke as their GM, the CB position would never be bare again but the talent sure would.

  2. Every year, the Giants get a billion DBs before camp.

    Every year, at least two are lost to pre-season or early season ACL injuries.

    Every year, the secondary underperforms — or doesn’t perform at all.

    And the following year, they always draft another high-round DB, dooming him to injury.

    Enough. Go get a few linebackers for once.

  3. With the amount of need out there at the position have to figure he may not be back up to speed but as a player coming off surgery he may be pricing himself too high.
