This can't be a surprise.

The New York Giants will not be landing hotly-sought after safety Devin McCourty in free agency. The former Rutgers University star will be returning to the New England Patriots.

McCourty's contract reportedly includes $28.5 million in guarantees.

What now for the Giants at the very much in flux safety position? Antrel Rolle is headed to the open market. Rahim Moore's price tag might be prohibitive. Ron Parker of the Kansas City Chiefs has emerged as a potential option.

The McCourty news also begs the question of whether the odds of Rolle or Stevie Brown returning to the Giants have now improved.
