Giants Expected to Pursue Devin McCourty and Rahim Moore: NJ.com is reporting that multiple sources have said the New York Giants are expected to pursue unrestricted free agent safeties Devin McCourty (New England Patriots) and Rahim Moore (Denver Broncos). BigBlueInteractive.com sources had reported the same on Thursday.
McCourty and Moore are widely regarded as the top two safeties on the free agent market. Meanwhile, all three of last season’s top safeties on the Giants are unrestricted free agents who may not return: Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown, and Quintin Demps.
The 32-year old Rolle, who has been with the Giants the last five seasons, has said he has not talked contract with the Giants and he is expects to hit the open market.
“The Giants’ organization has been phenomenal to me, and I think I’ve been phenomenal to them. But right now, this is just part of the business and you wait it out,” Rolle said. “This is all business. The Giants are going to handle this as a professional business matter and I plan on the same thing. As far as giving a team a hometown discount, that’s really irrelevant at this point, because no numbers have been talked about.
“Whether I’m with the Giants or not with the Giants, I’m always going to be a Giant at heart. I’ve loved my time here. I’ve been very, very fortunate to be a part of such an organization as the New York Giants for the past five years. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
“When you’re a free agent, you think about any team. There’s no team that’s going to be out of the loop. This is strictly a business move. This is a business move for the Giants, this is a business move for myself. If there are 32 teams interested, I’m going to look at all 32 teams. Right now, it’s just waiting time. Just waiting patiently and see what happens next. As far as I’m concerned, once March 10 comes, I’m going to become a free agent.”
