The Giants have all seven of their own picks in the draft. So far, they have not traded any away or…
"I'm happy to be here," Grant said. "I wanted to be here when I went to Seattle, but they came into the picture late. This opportunity on the second go-round – it was destined. I'm happy about the coaching staff and my new teammates and I'm ready to help them win the Super Bowl again."
New York fans will be glad to know that the Giants created room on the roster and in the defensive backfield by rescinding their tender to safety C.C. Brown, who played in every game with seven starts in his only Giants season.
Grant, who turned 31 last month, has started 144 consecutive regular season games and seven postseason games over the last nine seasons – three apiece with Carolina, Jacksonville and Seattle. The 144 starts in a row is the fifth-longest streak among active players.
His career totals include 640 tackles (522 solo), 26 interceptions, 74 passes defensed and 4.5 sacks.
In 2009, Grant had 78 tackles (60 solo), three interceptions, seven passes defensed and a forced fumble for the Seahawks.
"We signed Deon Grant because, number one, he's durable," general manager Jerry Reese said. "He really hasn't missed time. He's a durable veteran who will bring depth and leadership to our safety position."
Also, as expected, Jeff Feagles signed a one-year deal to remain New York's punter.
