The hits keep on coming.

Well, not really hits. Not yet, anyway. But players. The latest is Antwaun Molden, a cornerback who was with the Patriots (and had five tackles in Super Bowl XLVI) and has agreed to terms to join the Giants. The move was first reported by ESPNBoston.com but soon afterwards confirmed by Molden himself who Tweeted:

“Thank You all! I greatly appreciate it. Glad to be a Giant #NYGiants”

At least he didn’t spell Sinatra wrong!

The move caps what has been an exceptionally busy day considering it is early April, a time when most teams are bunkering down for the draft and finished making free agency splashes. The Giants have nearly completed a trade for Keith Rivers (which is expected to be finalized on Thursday) and also signed offensive lineman Sean Locklear.

The Molden acquisition is interesting since the Giants have already bolstered their secondary by re-signing players like Terrell Thomas, Bruce Johnson, Michael Coe and Justin Tryon (not to mention safeties Stevie Brown and Chris Horton). There will be some serious competition to fill the cornerback spots in training camp with a lot of players with a lot of experience fighting for only a few jobs.

But that’s something to watch in late July and August. Right now it’s early April. You know, the busy season.
