EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – When the New York Giants have to cut their roster to 53 a week from Sunday, one of the toughest decisions will involve the cornerbacks.
Prince Amukamara is set as a starter. Narrowing down the other four or five is not easy.
Veteran Corey Webster, who took a big pay cut to return, has battled groin and knee injuries and has only played in one preseason game. It seems unlikely he will suit up against the Jets on Saturday.
Aaron Ross, who re-signed with the Giants after a year in Jacksonville, has looked good, along with second-year pro Jayron Hosley.
Terrell Thomas has surprised a lot of people making his comeback from two ACL surgeries, and the some of the young free agents have shown flashes.
These are good problems to have for coach Tom Coughlin. But they won't make the decisions any less difficult.
