Corey Webster and Aaron Ross are starting at corner, while Sam Madison and rookie Terrell Thomas are competing for the nickel.
Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said the Giants will "ride the hot hand" when it comes to which tailback they roll with each week.
"Each of them (Brandon Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw, Derrick Ward) has their strengths and areas that you like to take advantage of. They really serve as a nice complement to each other"Jacobs will get the majority of starts, while Bradshaw and Ward will find their way into situations when it makes sense.
The Giants are not worried that Bradshaw will be suspended for having to serve 30 days in jail this offseason. It does not seem that he violated league conduct policy. He's in line to be the Giants No. 2 back with Ward likely headed to the PUP list with a leg injury.
Giants QB coach Chris Palmer wants backup QB David Carr to 'settle down' in the pocket.
"In the spring, at the first sign of an opposite color jersey he wanted to flush too quickly out of the pocket. We have to get his confidence back"
