The Giants finished out their 2013 draft with the selections of Michael Cox and Eric Herman.
Heading into the NFL Draft on Thursday, look for the Giants to fill many holes on defense in the seven rounds. That doesn’t mean, of course, that general manager Jerry Reese will use the 19th pick overall to take a defensive player.
It’s amazing how good a former team can look once you’ve sampled someplace else, and how bad things can be when you’re there in the first place. Brandon Jacobs, Darrelle Revis and Tim Tebow must be feeling those emotions right now.
Brandon Jacobs hasn’t exactly been keeping it a secret. He wants to return to the Giants. But what are the chances, really?
The New York Post posted a screen grab from Jacobs’ Instagram in which he’s running over a Patriots defender in a Giants uniform. Under the picture, Jacobs writes, “Trying to get back in this uniform.”
If healthy, the Giants could bring him in to compete with Da’Rel Scott and Ryan Torain for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart, the Daily News reported.
“That’s ridiculous,” he said. “…Running backs, the first thing that gets there is our head. That’s kind of weird. I guess they expect us to lead with our chests now rather than our head.”
“If the Giants want to work something out, I am always up for listening, figuring out what I can do to help the cause,” Manning said.
With Osi Umenyiora due to hit the free-agent market on March 12, should he make any attempt to re-sign him? How much should he pay Victor Cruz? Does he keep or release David Diehl? How about Corey Webster?
After his release from the Giants last week, running back Ahmad Bradshaw left a “door open” for a possible return to Big Blue. It seems he also has an eye on the Giants’ co-tenants at MetLife Stadium.
The Giants are clearly turning pages these days, remaking their roster to get young, faster, healthier and, yes, more salary-cap friendly.
Rogers missed last season after developing a blood clot in his leg following a preseason game against Jacksonville. He had been signed as a free agent in April.
The Giants made a perilous decision. They’re banking on David Wilson and Andre Brown — two younger, unproven backs — to develop into Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw at half the price.
The Giants are retooling their roster, and they will address these losses in the offseason. In cutting Bradshaw, Canty and Boley, general manager Jerry Reese has gotten rid of nearly $14 million in salary.
“Like I said, it was mentioned,” Bradshaw told WFAN of a possible return to Big Blue. “(There’s) always a door open on my side.”
