The New York Giants apparently have interest in a safety who last played for the Baltimore Ravens. No, not THAT safety. You know, the one who used to play for the Giants before a trio of suspensions led the Giants to release him. The Giants, per a report from the Baltimore Sun, have shown interest in former Ravens safety Darian Stewart.

The 26-year-old Stewart started 16 games for Baltimore last season, playing both strong and free safety. He spent four seasons with the St. Louis Rams prior to joining the Ravens, and has 33 starts in 70 career regular-season games. Stewart is 5-foot-11, 216 pounds.

Stewart had a +3.0 Pro Football Focus grade in 2014 (+2.8 vs. run, -1.1 in pass coverage).

The safety market has become one of the most interesting and unpredictable this offseason. The Giants have been linked to Rahim Moore and Ron Parker. The futures of Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown also remain uncertain.

One thing that might make Stewart intriguing to the Giants is that defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo was in Baltimore the past two seasons. Stewart is currently visiting the Denver Broncos, per the Sun's report.
