Giants Working Out Veteran S Donte Whitner


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Giants are working veteran S Donte Whitner.

This is the first reported interest in Whitner since he worked out for the Panthers over a month ago. Before that, Whitner visited with the Rams but never signed a deal with the team.

Whitner, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2006. After five years with the Bills, Whitner signed on with the 49ers and later joined the Browns in 2014.

He was in the third year of his four-year, $28 million contract when he was cut loose by the Browns back in April.

In 2015, Whitner appeared in 14 games and recorded 81 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble, no interceptions and four pass defenses for the Browns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 24 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
