Once a very deep position, the New York Giants are now struggling to find healthy defensive backs. Although cornerback Prince Amukamara is eyeing a week two return, that's no guarantee. And with Michael Coe dealing with a hamstring injury and safety Tyler Sash still suspended until week five, Big Blue held private workouts for a number of players on Friday, including former Indianapolis Colts safety David Caldwell.
Caldwell, a native of Montclair, New Jersey and graduate of William & Mary, was signed by the Colts after going undrafted in the 2010 NFL Draft. In 2011, he started 13 games at strong safety for the team, collecting 67 tackles and four passes deflection. He was waived as part of final cuts on August 26th.
"We’ll consider anything," Tom Coughlin said yesterday when asked about looking at free agent defensive backs. He followed it up by asking the reporter: "How are you with backpedaling? Pretty good?"
In addition to Caldwell, there were a large group of defensive backs at Friday's private workout, as well as a number of other currently unidentified players.
