The New York Giants want in on this Seattle Seahawks cornerback thing. They have signed Seahawks corner Walter Thurmond, who helped form the league's best secondaries this season en route to a Super Bowl title. Thurmond took visits to the San Francisco 49ers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins, indicating he was looking for a bigger role elsewhere.

The Giants might not be done, either. They still will meet with free-agent corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. DRC is taking a New York, New York double dip, having already met with the crosstown Jets for a visit. If the Giants were to sign Rodgers-Cromartie, they'd suddenly turn a dearth into serious depth at corner, with Prince Amukamara and Trumaine McBride also in the fold. They have allowed Terrell Thomas, who gamely played 16 games a year ago following two lost seasons to ACL injuries, shop himself around in free agency. Aaron Ross also is unsigned and will not be back by all indications.   - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?
