the guy is a beast and worth the32nd pick,but do the Giants have the money Bradshaw,Jacobs and Ware would have to go to clear space?

Franchising doesn't mean they're available for a first. If its restricted, different story.


And by time you trade for him and give him a huge deal, it really isn't. Trading a first round pick for an undrafted player is pretty ironic too, because Foster is one of many players who show the value in the draft and the draft process, and trading for him depletes your draft.

If I'm not mistaken, if he were to be franchised then it would be two first round picks that the Giants would need to send his way. Because he is an RFA with the highest tender, the Giants would have to outbid the Texans for him. If they can, then they send a first round pick to them for him.

The highest tender used to be a first and a third but now it is only a #1. I wouldnt be surprised, if he isn't franchised, when some teams try to snatch him up. Him and Mike Wallace. Could be interesting.

Did they rule there is no more cap?

Why don't the Giants just sign every FA?

No cap space for him and I don't want so much money wrapped up in 1 RB anymore. I think the Giants' approach is much better.

Focus on the o-line.

i don't understand why fans want every good free
agent that becomes available , i deplore this crap.
i HATE free agency , always have.

i don't want to win with ex-cowboys and ex-steelers and ex-redskins or ex-anybody.

i want to win with home-grown original new york giants.

nowadays the mentality is some sick kind of "fantasy football"
instant gratification syndrome.

most free agents are busts anyways.
they come to a new scheme and system and
are usually never as good as they were with
their original team.
do you think A Foster is really gonna flourish
behind this o-line ?

no i would not want A Foster or Barry Sanders.
nor would i want Mike Wallace or Jerry Rice.
they are not New York Giants........
some of you maroons are probably gonna want Peyton when the Colts release him.

where is your loyalty people , where is your pride.

Err..what? This approach is the reality of modern sport.

"Home-grown original New York Giants"? Like Eli Manning? Like David Baas, Kareem McKenzie, Antrel Rolle, Chris Canty, Deon Grant, Michael Boley, Lawrence Tynes and Steve Weatherford?

What about the last one with Shaun O'Hara, Plaxico Burress, Domenik Hixon, Kawika Mitchell, Sam Madison, RW McQuarters and Jeff Feagles?

Free agents are mostly busts? Like who? Like Drew Brees, Michael Turner and Darren Sproles? That's just from one team.


This is the way the league works.

It's not just the pick, you still have to pay him! Giants have no cap space...Creating enough for this would decimate the team!

Don't get it it is just a question for discussion.

This was in response to the picture posted.

Never said we should just throwing it out there. Is it better to have a unknown or a known? Contracts are part of the game that is why GMs get paid to make the team better while not mortgaging the furture of the team.

A backloaded contract with signing bonuses might alleviate these unknown cap numbers people seem to know for some reason.

if he's franchised he can only negotiate with the texans..if they cant reach an agreement he gets the average of the top 5 players at his position which is around 6/7M

How many idiots can there be that are saying "sign this guy, give up a pick for this guy blah blah blah." NEWSFLASH you new bandwagon fans. The Giants are WAY over the cap. Picks will be extra important this year for them because of that. All of their holes must be filled with the draft because thats all they can afford. If you are going to bandwagon, at least be intelligent enough to know the cap situation.

There's two different types of franchising, restricted and unrestricted. If they were to franchise him unresistrictedly, any team can make an offer at Foster, and in return that team sends two first round picks to Houston.
