Aaron Curry, forever tagged as a fourth overall draft pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2009, is looking to revive his career with the Giants, who signed him back in May. Traded to Oakland in the middle of 2011, Curry was eventually released last November by the Raiders, playing in just two games in 2012 after opening the season on the reserve/physically unable to perform with a knee injury. Now Curry believes he has turned the corner, saying his knee is healthy enough to withstand the rigors of an NFL season. But first, Curry must compete with his fellow linebackers to earn the job.

The Giants added another vertical threat to their wide receiving corps when they signed Louis Murphy back in March. Entering his fifth NFL season, the speedy wide receiver, who has run sub 4.4-second 40-yard dashes, looks to be another weapon in Eli Manning's arsenal out on the field. "We have a scout named Jeremiah Davis and he talks about guys being a knife," Giants general manager Jerry Reese said at the time of Murphy's signing. "This guy is a knife. This guy can take the top off your defense. He's an interesting guy. He gives us a different dimension in our offense."
Career: 57 GP, 24 GS, 115 REC, 1,707 YDS (14.8 AVG), 7 TD
From one storied franchise to another, Mundy brings a championship mentality from Pittsburgh to New York, where he will battle behind Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown, who had his own breakout year in 2012 with eight interceptions. Mundy is no stranger to working his way up a depth chart, having played behind Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark with the Steelers. Now it's time for Mundy to take what he learned from those Pro Bowl safeties and run with it in the Giants' secondary.
