Following the New York Giants (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/nyg/new-york-giants)' release of Brandon Jacobs (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/8524/brandon-jacobs), speculation began as to which free agent or draftable RBs the team would acquire to take his place. One of them was Mike Tolbert (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/11658/mike-tolbert), who last played for the San Diego Chargers (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/sd/san-diego-chargers). During an appearance on Sirius NFL Radio on Monday, Tolbert seemed interested (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/features/rumors?date=20120312#14466) in joining Eli Manning (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5526/eli-manning)'s team.</p>



While we wait to see just how much interest the Giants actually have
in the RB, ESPN NFC East blogger Dan Graziano assesses the fit for
Tolbert within the Giants' current backfield mix:</p>

<blockquote>"I say it's a great fit. Tolbert is a different kind of back than Ahmad Bradshaw (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10693/ahmad-bradshaw)
is. He's used to being in a committee situation and apparently wouldn't
mind being in one again. He's good enough to be an every-down guy if
and when Bradshaw has to miss a game. Tolbert and Michael Bush (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/10544/michael-bush),
two starter-quality free agents who have been operating in running back
committees, make the most sense as Jacobs replacements if the Giants
can afford them. The question now for Tolbert is how much he expects to
make. They're right up against the salary cap, which is why Jacobs is
gone in the first place."</blockquote>

If Tolbert signs for 3rd Down back money, which is really what he would be for us, then it's a good fit. </P>


His style compliments ABs', he's a very good pass catcher out of the backfield and can line up outside and he's a good pass blocker. </P>


But I personally don't see the money lining up unless he lingers on the market for a long time. </P>


Bush and Hillis are both looking to be starters making big bucks, so I don't see us having any shot at either of them. </P>

He fits in well with Cincys' style, they like a bruising back and he's got more left int he tank than Benson. </P>
