Curry, Cribbs depart without contracts

May, 9, 2013
Aaron Curry and Josh Cribbs have completed their Thursday visits with the Giants.

Both players will leave without signing. Cribbs will continue his free-agent tour by heading to Detroit, according to CBS' Jason La Canfora. Cribbs has visited with the Raiders, Jets and Giants so far.

Cribbs' decision could come down to whichever situation he feels is the best opportunity on the field, not just financially. The Giants are looking for veterans who can help on cheap one-year deals. Cribbs would certainly provide them with a dangerous kick returner to allow David Wilson to focus on his running back duties. But at receiver, Cribbs would be behind Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle and would have to battle with Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan on the depth chart.

Curry tweeted that his workout "went well...little rough on the edges but nothing repetition and hard work can't smooth out."

"I'm in this coldtub though...enjoyed working out for the @Giants #Herrman #Coughlin and #Reese and all the staff," Curry tweeted.

He later tweeted: "My few hours with #Giants staff and players explain everything to me... #firstclass"

With rookie camp starting on Friday, we'll have to see what the Giants think of their rookies and undrafted free agents and wait for how the market shakes out for Cribbs and Curry before something happens.
