Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o visited with the Giants on Thursday night and Friday morning, according to multiple reports. Te’o, of course, was the victim of a “catfishing” hoax that took the sports world by storm in January.
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.
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.”
Losing Umenyiora and Blackburn means that the Giants have a lot of work to do the rest of the offseason if they still want to be considered one of the league’s elite teams.
Giants defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was allegedly burglarized in the wee hours of Monday morning during a stay at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, according to CBS Miami.
“The entire time I wanted to return to the New York Giants, and fortunately they wanted me back,” Boothe said. “I’m happy to be back. It’s a great organization and a great team. I’m looking forward to this upcoming season.”
“It’s great to be back,” Ross told the Giants’ official website. “Words can’t explain. I’m very excited to be back here.”
The Giants have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with linebacker Keith Rivers, according to multiple sources. In his first season with Big Blue the 26-year-old played in 11 games, recording 44 combined tackles.
What the competition does will determine head coach Tom Coughlin’s ability to maneuver his team back to the top of the division once the season kicks off.
The Giants signed free-agent kicker Josh Brown to a one-year deal on Wednesday. The signing means that the Lawrence Tynes era in East Rutherford is likely over.
“I’m glad I don’t have any of those free agency jitters to deal with,” Beatty said. “It’s settled, we’re done and we’re moving on.”
Freeney is looking for a job after he was informed by the Colts on February 15 that he would not be re-signed, and he’s excited about the possibility of joining the G-Men.
The former Notre Dame linebacker also said he has shut down his Twitter account and isn’t sure if he will ever use social media again.
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?
The Giants are clearly turning pages these days, remaking their roster to get young, faster, healthier and, yes, more salary-cap friendly.
