CB Stephens to return?

Insider Info

CB Reggie Stephens, the former Rutgers star who was released by Kansas City this summer was a favorite of Jim Fassel's when he was with Big Blue.

Despite tremendous play from their top three cornerbacks this season, injury concerns led New York to take a look at former Giant CB Reggie Stephens. The former Rutgers star, who was released by Kansas City this summer, was a favorite of Jim Fassel's when he was with Big Blue.

However, it's uncertain if the Giants are going to be able to bring back Stephens, who worked out for the club Monday.

Afterward, Big Blue told Stephens that they'd like to sign him. But New York can't afford to let go of any of its defensive backs, meaning they'd have to dump someone from another position, possibly throwing the roster off balance.

Unfortunately for the Giants, Stephens, who was with the club in 1999 and 2000, is no longer eligible for the practice squad.
