New York Giants' news, 3/20: Walter Thurmond 'tremendous value'

Walter Thurmond

New York Giants' headlines for Thursday, 3/20

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are your headlines for this Thursday morning.

Which free-agent signing was the best move by Giants' GM Jerry Reese? Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie? Geoff Schwartz? ESPN analyst Louis Riddick thinks it might turn out to be former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Walter Thurmond, who signed a one-year, $3 million deal:

"If he can stay healthy and out of trouble, it’s a tremendous value signing," said Riddick, who pegged Thurmond as his most underrated available player heading into free agency.

The Giants reportedly have $4.57 million in salary cap space left, and they are still looking for value on the market. Former New Orleans Saints' offensive tackle Charles Brown is scheduled to visit with the Giants.

Brown, who will be 27 next season, started 14 games for the Saints and had an unimpressive -9.2 score from Pro Football Focus, including -13.6 in pass protection. What Brown, a second-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, does have is 22 games and NFL starting experience -- some at each tackle position. Right now the Giants don't have an experienced swing tackle, especially important with Will Beatty recovering from a broken leg suffered in the 2013 season finale.

The National Football Post reports that center Brian De La Puente is visiting the Washington Redskins. The NFP says the Giants still have interest in the former Saints' center.

Giants' defensive end Damontre Moore, formerly of Texas A&M, made some critical comments on Twitter about the Texas A&M athletics administration.

Writing for SBNation.com, former NFL defensive lineman Stephen White has a great look at Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson.

Here is look at the NFL's proposed rule changes.
