Pittsburgh Steelers unrestricted free agent safety Ryan Mundy was in for a visit with the New York Giants on Thursday and it appears as if a deal is close to being struck.
According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today on Twitter, the Giants could have a deal finalized with Mundy sometime on Thursday.
Mundy has been with the Steelers ever since he was drafted in the sixth round of the 2008 draft out of West Virginia. While mostly being counted on to play special teams, he has started at both the strong and free safety spots in the past due to injuries.
Mundy played in all 16 games in 2012 and started just three of them early on in the season. He recorded 24 total tackles and recovered one fumble.
The Giants are more than likely signing Mundy to compete for a backup safety spot in 2013 and play special teams.
The Steelers are expected to address the safety position at some point during the upcoming draft. They also could choose to re-sign veteran safety Will Allen, who is also an unrestricted free agent this off-season.
