So it begins. 


Uh...yeah, go G Men, would like to see more a team this year and not Captain Eli flying solo.

Free agency is off and running. Some pretty big moves being made, but I'll make this first post about the giants.

Giants to sign R. Jennings (RB), G Schwartz (G), and O Schofield (LB). P Hillis re-signed with the team as well. L Joseph signs a 5 year deal with Minnesota and reports are implying that Andre Brown may be expendable...which is not what I want to hear. Though that last bit is still in pre-rumor stage.

Yeah, was sad to see Linval go...great player. 
Guess that how cap casualties go. 

So far G men seem to be aiming for OL and DBs, as well as RBs. I hear Stevie Brown is likely to (if not) re signing so that'd be great.

Indeed he (Stevie) has! They also resigned the kicker...but better news is they agreed to terms with Beason.

Reports are coming in that Jacoby Jones will be visiting the Giants as well. If they have the $$ to sign him that would be great. Even if it's just a special teams boost...would be nice to have a dangerous return man. And the one player I would like the giants to at least consider is TE Owen Daniels...who was released by the Texans yesterday.

All in all though, I'm glad the giants are being active in free agency.

As a Giants fan, what else is there to look forward to? LOLCry

Though thankfully, F1 is starting up soon and I am kinda a little bit excited for Baseball this year (lol we'll see how that goes) so I can distract myself soon. 
Until then, Giants have made a lot of offseason moves I've liked, glad they didn't pull a Colts and decided NOW to upgrade the team..not hold on for 4 more years

I'm happy to see the Ravens sign Dennis Pitta (TE),Eugene Monroe (LT),and Jacoby Jones (WR) to 4-5 year deals for very decent money that still leaves us with some money to spend in FA.

Seeing as how Kubiak is now our OC and he loves Owen Daniels I expect to see him in purple and black.We need another TE with the departure of Ed Dickson.

Ravens center Gino Gradkowski will be nothing but a perennial under performer and we must move on.He just doesn't have what it takes to play center at a high level.I want Alex Mack,but that probably won't happen.

Need another WR but Tate is gone and Decker just signed with the Jets.I don't care for Nicks and signing Jones to a 4 year deal might cool us down toward Edelman.Steve Smith might be a good,shorter term option.

I'm rambling..........................Confused

After yesterday, I would be depressed to be a Giants fan. I think signing Schwartz was a great move, but given they could have gotten Schofield and Jennings for under $2M combined easily last July. I'm not sure what they saw out of Schofield's 144 snaps last year that warrants him going from about $900,000 to $8M for 2 years. Jennings I would start questioning his age at this point (I think he's past his prime), and they're giving him almost $2M when it could have been about $630,000 last summer.

And don't get me started on Peyton Hills.

I think the most interesting thing yesterday was the Saints signing Jarius Byrd, because it tells me they don't expect to hold on to Jimmy Graham. They're going to have to restructure a ton of contracts to cover him in the future, plus the Falcons and Bucs got significantly better yesterday. Of course, the Saints have the same issue the Broncos had this season (lots of stars at the top, and next to nobody in terms of backups). We'll see what happens in the draft, but I think the Saints need to stay incredibly healthy to have any chance of winning another SB.

Hate to see Golden Tate leave Seattle for Detroit. A receiver who gets yards after the catch is a valuable asset. I hope putting faith in Percy Harvin works out.

I don't have a problem with it. Is it more then is necessary? Probably. But it's not crippling. I'm more miffed that all this RB stuff is going to most likely exclude A Brown from the roster...which is a shame.

Phil beat me to it, I have no problem with Hillis per se (and he was one of the only 2 RBs to show ANY fight (or ability to break a man)) but yeah, if it all costs us our best RB Andre Brown that would really suck. 

But nah not depressed, I think the Giants have made good moves overall, they usually draft well, we shall see but so far so good.

I disagree with Hills. I think there are plenty of RBs out there who can easily get you 3.4 YPG. But oh well. We'll find out.

I just don't understand why the Giants front office and scouts thought it was worthwhile to wait a year, and only get a higher price tag out of the whole thing when they could have gone much cheaper last summer.

Well guess it doesn't really bug me as much because it's really not the most pressing of needs. 
I knew the name Geoff Schwartz but just looked into him, PFF had him as their highest ranked FA  O lineman, and Giants got him for a good price, so I'm quite happy. 

Resigning Stevie Brown was big, if he can return to 2012 form that'd be THREE good safeties. And good to have insurance in case Rolle goes back to sucking, or Will Hill can't stay out of trouble Angry McBride was a very solid CB, so as always Giants have made not flashy moves but overall I'm happy so far. The RB situation is screwy but eh...not too concerned. 
Don't get me wrong though, Hillis is a far cry from his glory years. He at least showed heart and/or strength. Our other backs are all too small or too broken. Like how it took Brandon Jacobs 5 tries I think to get that 1 yd TD, it used to take him only 3! LOLCry

From what I understand Hillis is the best blocking RB we have (or at least had...not sure how Jennings is on that account). That raises his value a bit IMO.

And excellent news on Schwartz! I hadn't heard of him...I was just excited they were addressing the need.

Since this seems to be giants news central...

Justin Tuck has signed with the Raiders. 2 yr, $11 mil...which was offered to the giants to match (which they obviously declined to do). I'll miss him...but I wouldn't have paid him that much either.
