Let's continue our breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp by looking at safety David Caldwell.

2012 Season In Review

Caldwell was out of the NFL last season, having been cut by the Indianapolis Colts just prior to the start of the season. He played all 16 games for the Colts in 2011, starting 13. He made 67 tackles and had four passes defensed. He had an average -0.4 rating from Pro Football Focus. He made the Indianapolis roster in 2011 as an undrafted free agent from William & Mary.

2013 Outlook

Caldwell faces a tough climb to make the Giants' roster. Behind starters Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown the Giants have Ryan Mundy, Will Hill, Tyler Sash and fifth-round draft pick Cooper Taylor. There is also the possibility that Terrell Thomas could wind up included in that group. Undrafted free agent Alonzo Tweedy, brought in primarily for his special teams coverage ability, is also listed as a safety.
