New York Giants continue to accumulate Denver Broncos castoffs

The New York Giants have continued on in their task to become the Denver Broncos of the NFC.

Not only do they feature a Manning as their quarterback, but the football Giants have also shown a tendency as of late to add former Broncos to their roster.

That trend continued on Monday, when they signed former Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to a five-year contract; adding him to their revamped secondary.

Rodgers-Cromartie was expected to return to Denver, but they instead signed Aqib Talib last week, and pulled their offer off of the table.

The team was at it yet again Tuesday; announcing they had signed former Denver return specialist Trindon Holliday to a one-year deal.

A boom-or-bust player, the diminutive Holliday showed his explosive big-play potential last season against the Giants; returning a punt 81 yards for a touchdown.

The signings of Rodgers-Cromartie and Holliday just mark the latest two links in a chain of former Broncos to join the Giants. The team also added former Broncos center J.D. Walton last week.

While that marks all of the players from last year’s roster that they pillaged from the AFC Champions; the team also added former Denver tight end Daniel Fells and re-signed former Broncos running back Peyton Hillis.

These are just some of the moves in a busy offseason for the Giants; who have also brought back Mario Manningham, and added both Walter Thurmond and Rashad Jennings.
