The New York Giants face an uncertain situation at the slot cornerback spot, and with their overall cornerback depth. They won't, however, be getting help from former New England Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington. He will be joining the Baltimore Ravens.

Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo admitted recently that the Giants are trying to "feel through" their options for the nickel cornerback role and added that "I'm not sure I have an answer for that right now." Most reports have indicated, however, that the Giants never seriously considered Arrington.
It would appear that Trumaine McBride and Mike Harris would be the leading candidates for that role. Jayron Hosley, a 2012 third-round pick, was drafted for that role but has been a bust. The Giants also have Chykie Brown, Chandler Fenner and possibly Josh Gordy as options.
They just won't have Arrington as one.
