Giants sign safety Quintin Demps

Safety | Quintin Demps

The New York Giants were looking to add depth to their secondary and create a spark in their special teams return game and they killed two birds with one stone by signing veteran safety Quintin Demps to a contract on Sunday.

The New York Giants bolstered the depth in their secondary by adding sixth year safety Quentin Demps. With the Kansas City Chiefs last season, Demps hauled in four interceptions and averaged a whopping 30.1 yard kick return average.

After stints with the Texans, Eagles and Chiefs, Demps now calls the Big Apple his home and looks to reignite a special teams return game that has been on life support since running back David Wilson went down with a season-ending neck injury. In 64 regular season games, Demps has totaled 93 tackles, seven interceptions, one sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Playing behind Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown and Will Hill on the depth chart, Demps' knack for the spectacular kick return will make him a secret weapon for special teams coordinator Tom Quinn.
