Starters: Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas
Reserves: Prince Amukamara, Jayron Hosley, Antwaun Molden
The Giants should fair much better on defense next season. They clearly missed Terrell Thomas last season, who was arguably their best defender in 2010.
Amukamara and Hosley each have loads of potential, and Molden filled in admirably for the Patriots last season. You could argue the Giants have five starter-worthy corners on their roster.
Notable players cut: Michael Coe, Justin Tryon, Bruce Johnson, Brian Witherspoon
Starters: Antrel Rolle, Kenny Phillips
Reserves: Tyler Sash, Janzen Jackson
As much as I wanted to put Chad Jones as one of the reserves, I doubt he will be ready by the season opener. He'll begin the year on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Janzen Jackson is one of the undrafted free agents the Giants signed this year. He had a troubled college career with multiple off-the-field incidents, but he's a big time hitter and smart on the field.
The Giants will have to cut multiple safeties as there is not room for all of them on the roster. Chris Horton and Steve Brown were signed this offseason, but I do not think the Giants imagined Jackson being available at such a low risk.
Given that Deon Grant has not been signed yet, I have to assume the worst. He was an asset for the Giants the previous two years. The 13-year veteran will be sorely missed in the locker room.
Notable players cut: Chad Jones (or PUP), Chris Horton, Stevie Brown
(If the Giants want to hold on to the insane amount of defensive backs they've got, they will have to suffer at other positions. I do not see this happening)
