28 seems to have been a common number worn by New York Giants' defensive backs. And there certainly have been some good ones. Everson Walls may not have had the longest career with the Giants in particular, but he certainly showed that he could play the game while with the team.
Coming over from the archrival Dallas Cowboys, Walls may have felt the need to endear himself to the fans of New York. And with his play, he certainly earned their respect as a member of Big Blue.
In 1990, Walls' first season with the New York Giants, he racked up a healthy 6 interceptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. Walls was a key component of the Giants' run to their second Super Bowl Championship as well, picking up an interception in their first playoff game that season.
He would play one more full season with the Jints, 1991, during which he would pick up another four picks, to go along with half a sack.
1992 saw him play in six regular season games for New York, with one INT, before he was let go, and subsequently signed by the Cleveland Browns.
Did you know.......that Walls started at safety for the first time in his career while with New York?
