Drew Brees has just been franchised tagged by the Saints. That makes OL Carl Nicks available.

Should the Giants make some cap room and make a play for him?

I don't understand this stuff but it doesn't sound like a regular franchise tag</P>

<P class=js-tweet-text>The exclusive tag prevents other teams from talking to Brees and will pay him more than the roughly $14.5M the non-exclusive tag is worth...</P>

<P class=js-tweet-text>Ultimately, what the tag does is buy the sides til July 15 to get a long-term deal done, which is the goal.</P>

The Giants will not be signing any big name FA's. They have no room. Understand there are a few teams that are way under the cap.

For real. And to imagine it's been extremely calm so far this year as far as FA is concerned. I suppose it'll get crazy here with the "Why aren't we signing?" "We should sign..." "Jerry WTF?!?!" threads come the actual start of FA.</P>

Giants have no cap space...Creating enough for this would decimate the team!

Bad News. I heard rumors that the Cowboys are interested in acquiring him plus they may be interested in draft OG Dvavid DeCastro.

Can't afford him. With Boothe, Petrus, Beatty, and Brewer, build from within and the draft.

Let Philly make all the big plays for FA out there. Because we've got better in the Giants. We're an actual professional football team; we're here to make wins, not headlines...
