The Giants don't really need a cornerback, given a depth chart that includes Corey Webster, Aaron Ross, Terrell Thomas, and Bruce Johnson, not to mention a restricted free agent in Kevin Dockery. But with Texans corner Dunta Robinson coming free -- Houston will not franchise him, nor will they negotiate before the March 5 opening of the free agent period -- would it be worth the big pricetag for the Giants to pick him up?
Robinson, a year out of ACL surgery, did not have the kind of season a top-flight cornerback should have, as he was vulnerable to the intermediate passes. But some feel that he could return to being one of the best cover guys in the league next season. The question is, do you guys think he's worth it?
Having a guy like Robinson might make it unnecessary for them to keep Dockery, since that would probably push one of the two starters from last season, Webster or Thomas, into the nickel package. Also, the Giants may well want to keep some flexibility with Ross, who played several games at safety before his hamstring problems ultimately ended his season.
I don't see the Giants going after Robinson, but the question does seem intriguing. And, let's face it, the good stuff at the NFL Scouting Combine doesn't happen until later in the week, so what else have we got to occupy us?
Idle hands are the devil's workshop. So get typing.
