Giants Will Audition Cornerbacks On Wednesday

Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network is reporting that the New York Giants will audition cornerbacks on Wednesday in the wake of Monday's season-ending injury to starter Terrell Thomas.

LaCanfora reports that Kelvin Hayden, who I speculated about earlier today, will not be among them. Wrote LaCanfora:

The Giants are being practical about losing their top corner in Thomas and have told agents they're looking to make a veteran-minimum, split contract-type move.

So the limited earning capacity has prompted some top candidates, like former Colts CB Kelvin Hayden, to decline the invite.

One report speculated that former Philadelphia Eagle Lito Sheppard could be among the players working out. Sheppard, 30, is an eight-year veteran and two-time Pro-Bowler. He played 13 games for the Minnesota Vikings last season, starting two.

Here is a list of currently available cornerbacks. If the Giants don't have the salary cap space to pursue Hayden then the list of candidates is not that impressive. They will be hoping to get by until Prince Amukamara is healthy and up to speed.
