The 26-year-old Hagan, a former third-round pick of the Dolphins, was released at final cuts this year. But with Steve Smith out for this weekend’s game (and perhaps longer), as well as Barden’s injury, the Giants were desperate for a veteran who could play right away. Hagan proved to be the best option after a workout yesterday.
“I don’t even know if you can actually contain a guy like Mike Vick,” Giants safety Antrel Rolle said Tuesday on WFAN. “You can just do the best that you can against him and try and discourage him every which way you can, try and limit the things he’s most dominant at – which is passing, and which is running.”
