Giants sign veteran safety Brandon Meriweather

In a desperate attempt to shore up their injury-ravaged secondary, the Giants have turned to former Pro Bowl safety Brandon Meriweather.

The 31-year-old, last seen with the Washington Redskins, has not played 16 games in a season since 2010.

With the signing, though, Giants general manager Jerry Reese is hoping to strike gold for a second time on the injured-but-talented aging star market.

Reese traded a seventh-round pick for Jon Beason two years ago and watched as the All-Pro transformed a struggling defense.

Though Meriweather's impact may be a little more understated, the team had no other options. So far this camp, they are down seven members of the secondary.

If nothing else, the Giants will get a little nastier.
