CBS Sports praises Fabian Moreau's impact on secondary

While the Giants have dealt with injuries at numerous positions this season, one that has been hit particularly hard is cornerback. Aaron Robinson played in just two games this season and has been on injured reserve since Week 4. Meanwhile, Adoree' Jackson suffered his own knee injury in Week 11 and has yet to return to the practice field.

These injuries paved the way for Fabian Moreau to earn a starting role in the secondary, and once given the opportunity, the veteran corner did not look back.

CBS Sports' Cody Benjamin recently picked the most important in-season move for 10 playoff teams. When it came to the Giants, he chose the promotion of Moreau from the practice squad as the Giants' biggest move this season.

"With Adoree Jackson injured, Moreau stepped in from the practice squad as an adequate No. 1 corner on the outside, logging career marks in terms of opposing completion percentage," wrote Benjamin.

Moreau has played in 12 games this season with starts in each of the last nine. The 28-year-old has registered 54 total tackles (42 solo) and 10 pass breakups, just one shy of his career-best 11 set last year with the Atlanta Falcons.

The Giants originally signed Moreau to the practice squad on September 5. After elevating him for Weeks 2 and 3, the Giants signed the veteran cornerback to the active roster on September 28.

Moreau was originally a third-round pick (No. 81 overall) by the Washington Commanders in 2017. After playing four seasons in Washington, Moreau spent the 2021 season with the Falcons.

In 88 career games (43 starts) across six seasons, Moreau has registered 240 tackles (170 solo), six interceptions, 35 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, four tackles for loss and one quarterback hit.
