SAFETY COOPER TAYLORAfter releasing veteran safety Brandon Meriweather this week, the Giants move forward with Taylor, Craig Dahl, and rookie second-round draft choice Landon Collins. Coach Tom Coughlin said all three will play while nickel corner Trumaine McBride can also go back there to help the defense out. Meanwhile, Taylor, who has been released, signed to the practice squad, and then added to the active roster all in the span of two months, has progressed, according to defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo."I think the intelligence part of it is coming around," Spagnuolo said of Taylor, who had five tackles (one for loss) last week. "He feels more comfortable. I thought I saw a more confident football player when he came back, I will say that. And I see him out there and now functioning really well, and that's great to see, love to see guys do that. It's helpful."
