"He's a perfect fit," George Mavrikes said. "He'd love to be a Giant."
Hood, who totalled 121 tackles and five interceptions in his four-year career in Philly, has two visits already planned. He's scheduled to visit Cleveland on Saturday, then arrive in Arizona Sunday evening for a Monday visit.
"He does have two visits but that doesn't preclude him from coming to the Giants," Mavrikes added.
The 5-11, 196-pound Hood is expected to only agree to a deal with a club that will guarantee him a legitimate shot to start at corner. The Giants may very well be such a team since there have been talks of moving Sam Madison, who started last season, inside to play nickel corner.
