The Giants continue to tweak their secondary, replacing one safety with another as they prepare for their Week 1 contest against the Cowboys. According to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com (via Twitter), the Giants have signed ex-Niner Craig Dahl, cutting Stevie Brown to create room on the roster.
Dahl, 30, began his career with the Giants in 2007, and started 40 games at safety for the Rams between 2009 and 2012, spending time with Steve Spagnuolo at both stops. However, Dahl served mostly as a special-teamer in San Francisco after joining the 49ers in 2013. The Niners have a deep group of safeties this year, which made the veteran Dahl expendable — he was released earlier this week, and also drew interest from the Raiders.
In New York, Dahl will be a reserve on defense and figures to chip in on special teams as well. He’ll replace Brown, who just re-signed with the team last week, after being cut by the Texans. Brown reportedly received interest from a handful of clubs following his release from Houston, so he could draw some attention now that he’s available again.
