The New York Giants made the signing of free-agent cornerback Antwaun Molden official on Monday. Molden is a four-year veteran who spent three seasons with the Houston Texans and played last season for the New England Patriots.
"It's exciting to be here," Molden said. "I like everything about this situation. I like the coaching staff. When I was coming out of college I liked the Giants - I liked the defense, I liked the players. They recruit good players. There's a team-first attitude. They're selfless. That's the blueprint for success and you see that here. That's what I want to be a part of."
Molden, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, is hardly guaranteed a spot on the team's season-opening 53-man roster. The Giants have Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas and Prince Amukamara as their top three corners. Molden figures to compete with Justin Tryon, Michael Coe and Bruce Johnson for a spot as a reserve.
