With the recent, plentiful losses in the secondary, the New York Giants have added safety Branon Meriweather to bolster the secondary.

By Robby Sabo

The New York Giants didn’t impress in their first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals last Friday night. The final score of 23-10 didn’t even tell half the story.

In any event, it’s just preseason – the time in which no score matters. However, the one score that does count is total number of injuries and the Giants sure suffered a few of those.

Tom Coughlin’s squad lost safeties Mykkele Tompson to an achilles (season ending) and second-round highly-touted pick Landon Collons (MCL sprain). They’ve become quite thin at the safety spot.

Naturally general manager Jerry Reese got on the horn. The first name to be signed was 31-year old veteran Brandon Meriweather.

Meriweather has played 99 games in the NFL with three different squads (New England Patriots, Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins). He’s picked up 15 career interceptions and 292 tackles.

Last year with Washington, he started 10 games and piled up 36 tackles.
