NY Giants Rumors: Former Giants DC Perry Fewell To Target NY Players In Free Agency?

The Giants fired defensive coordinator Perry Fewell at the end of the 2014 season, but it didn't take him long to land somewhere else - Tuesday morning, it was announced that Fewell would become defensive backs coach for the Washington Redskins.

Fewell is very familiar with the Giants players entering free agency this Spring, and there are rumblings that he has his eyes set on a few players he'd like to have join him in Washington. Here's a list of New York's defensive players entering free agency:

DE Jason Pierre-Paul

DT Mike Patterson

OLB Mark Herzlich

OLB Spencer Paysinger

OLB Jacquian Williams

CB Zackary Bowman

CB Chykie Brown

CB Mike Harris

CB Walter Thurmond

S Stevie Brown

S Quintin Demps

S Antrel Rolle

Obviously, not all of these players are worth going after, and a few might find themselves out of the league entirely. However, we wouldn't be at all surprised to see Fewell encourage his team to make a run at JPP, Herzlich, Thurmond, Stevie Brown or Rolle, and the Redskins might take a hard look at some of the other names here as well. As defensive backs coach, it's most likely he makes a push for Rolle and/or Stevie Brown, two players who should be available without his team having to break the bank.
