Schulters to visit Giants

With free agent safety Shaun Williams scheduled to visit the Titans early this week, the Giants are going into potential damage control mode.

Big Blue is scheduled to host 49ers unrestricted free agent safety Lance Schulters in the next day or so. The Giants are still hopeful of retaining Williams, with GM Ernie Accorsi meeting with Williams' representative, Marvin Demoff, at the league meetings in Orlando, FL.

Williams was planning to meet with Tennessee last Friday, but cancelled and rescheduled the visit for early this week. Previously, the Eagles cancelled Williams' visit to Philly when they inked Blaine Bishop.

Schulters, a Brooklyn, NY, product, has spent the last four seasons in San Francisco, after he was a fourth-round selection of the 'Niners in 1998. The 6-2, 207-pounder picked off six passes in 1999 and posted 91 tackles in 2000 before having a sub-par season last year.

New York has already lost last year's starting strong safety, Sam Garnes, who was released and signed a three-year deal with the Jets. If New York now loses Williams, they better hope they can afford Schulters.

Also, a rough off-season for Big Blue got even worse last week when the Giants lost a coin toss with the Titans for the 14th selection in the upcoming draft. The Giants will now select 15th.
