One of Perry Fewell's favorite packages to run on defense last year was the three safety look with Deon Grant replacing one of the linebackers.
I get the feeling he is going to run that still due to the success it had against the pass.
Terrell Thomas has come out and told reporters at camp that he would be willing to play safety or even a nickel corner since those positions seem to fit his skill set more.
However, with the recent loss of Prince Amukamara to a fractured left foot, I don't know how much the Giants are going to be able to move Thomas away from his corner position.
The only way this can happen is if Aaron Ross shows the team he is fully healthy and capable of playing corner again.
I fully expect this to happen. Ross has battled injuries the past two seasons and is entering the final year of his contract with a lot to prove.
"I’ve been doing pretty well,” Ross told reporters today. "I came into camp in shape and I feel really good this year. I’m healthy. I feel like my old self. I have my balance back, my speed back, so I’m ready to go."
The Giants need Ross to step up and I believe he can do that given his circumstances. After losing Bruce Johnson for the season and now Amukamara for an extended period of time, the team's deepest position (corner) has all of a sudden become one of the thinnest.
Hopefully, Ross is feeling as good as he says he is.
