  Giants | Walter Thurmond likely to hit market    Wed Mar 4, 11:45 PM

The New York Giants are interested in bringing back impending free-agent CB Walter Thurmond (pectoral), but it appears the sides are far apart. The team would likely to bring him back somewhere closer to the minimum salary after he tore a pectoral muscle in the second game last season, and they do not want to risk $3 million again. He is likely to test the open market.

Footballguys view: Thurmond came over from the Seahawks in 2014, but his one season with the Giants was cut short. We could actually see Thurmond return to Seattle as they are likely to lose Byron Maxwell in free agency.

  Giants | Zackary Bowman not at practice    Thu Nov 6, 04:56 PM

New York Giants CB Zackary Bowman (abdomen) was not at practice Thursday, Nov. 6, due to what is being reported as a lower abdominal issue. The team recently lost CB Prince Amukamara to a torn biceps, while CBs Walter Thurmond, Trumaine McBride and Bennett Jackson are already on Reserve/Injured.

Footballguys view: The Giants secondary is a dumpster fire right now, save for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. We expect the Seahawks to run the ball a lot but there might be some value in the passing game as well. Doug Baldwin (groin) is a solid WR3, Jermaine Kearse is an upside play as a WR5 and Luke Willson is a hail mary TE3, though the Giants get torched by tight ends. Russell Wilson is in "game manager" mode at this time, so he's no more than a QB2.

  Giants | Two promoted from PS    Tue Sep 16, 05:57 PM

New York Giants WR Julian Talley and LB Dan Fox were promoted to the team's active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 16, filling the spots left by WR Jerrel Jernigan and CB Walter Thurmond, who were both placed on Reserve/Injured.

Footballguys view: With Jernigan out for the year, the Giants turn to Talley to take his spot. They've got the market cornered on UMASS wide receivers (Victor Cruz is the other one), and Talley is speedy in the open field. He can give them decent depth at wide receiver, but he's not the threat as a receiver that Jernigan was. Talley can also be used as a return man.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate called suspended CBs Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond 'selfish' after being suspended by the NFL for substance-abuse violations. 'Everyone should realize where this team is,' Tate said in a radio interview Tuesday, Nov. 26. 'You are affecting way more than yourself. I feel like that was kind of a selfish move on both those guys part. But it is what it is. The show must go on and that's what we're gonna do.'

Footballguys view: Tate has always been known as a feisty player. These suspensions could heavily damage what is a world-class defense.

  Seahawks | Walter Thurmond facing suspension    Sun Nov 24, 10:15 AM

Seattle Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond is facing a 4-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse. Thurmond is expected to drop his appeal this week.

Footballguys view: The Seattle pass defense doesn't look so scary for the stretch run now. Their D/ST may also suffer a bit, as Thurmond was an underrated corner who represented a very small dropoff from Brandon Browner. Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell will be put on the spot by Drew Brees in week 13.
