The Giants announced Monday that they signed the former New England Patriot for what promises to be an interesting training camp in the defensive backfield.
"It's exciting to be here," Molden said. "I like everything about this situation. I like the coaching staff. When I was coming out of college, I liked the Giants. I liked the defense, I liked the players. They recruit good players. There's a team-first attitude. They're selfless.
"That's the blueprint for success and you see that here. That's what I want to be a part of."
Molden was claimed on waivers by the Patriots in September and appeared in all 19 games, making two starts, with a career-high 28 tackles with two interceptions. Molden had five tackles in New England's 21-17 loss to New York in Super Bowl XLVI.
Molden was the Houston Texans' third-round draft pick (79th overall) in 2008 and played three seasons with the team. He suffered a broken ankle as a rookie and a quadriceps injury in 2009.
