New, comments

Can Trumaine McBride. back up his solid 2014 season with another good year?

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

With just weeks remaining until the New York Giants report to East Rutherford for training camp. Big Blue View continues its breakdown of the 90-man roster the Giants' will take to camp. Today, let's look at cornerback Trumaine McBride.

2013 Season in Review

After bouncing around several teams throughout his career and being out of the league in 2012, McBride had a breakout season in 2013. When Corey Webster was injured and Aaron Ross was put on injured reserve, McBride filled in admirably opposite Prince Amukamara as the Giants' starting corner. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound Houston native recorded 37 tackles, defended 15 passes and intercepted two. When Webster appeared to be getting healthy enough to take the field once again, Giants' defensive coordinator Perry Fewell questioned reporters saying McBride had done "nothing" to lose his starting position.

2014 Season Outlook

Despite McBride's successes in 2013, the Giants' bolstered their secondary with the signings of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond and Zack Bowman, leaving McBride out in the cold. It should be interesting to see how the Giants use McBride during training camp. With many notable additions on the team and others (Charles James) flashing, it could be tough for McBride to find playing time.
