EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Two months after losing to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, cornerback Antwaun Molden is now a member of Big Blue.

The Giants announced Monday that they signed the former New England Patriots defensive back for what promises to be an interesting training camp in the backfield.

Molden was claimed on waivers by the Patriots in September and appeared in all 19 games, making two starts. He had a career-high 28 tackles with two interceptions. Formerly of the Houston Texans, he also had 11 special teams tackles in the regular season and seven total in three postseason games. In New England's 21-17 loss to New York in Indianapolis, Molden had five total tackles.

The Giants now have seven veteran cornerbacks -- Corey Webster, Terrell Thomas, Prince Amukamara, Michael Coe, Bruce Johnson, Justin Tryon and Molden -- as minicamp nears.
