That is definitely why he took a one year deal. He wants to have a good year on a team with Cruz and Nicks and then be able to cash in.

I like the stanford TE kid..fleener. Bennett probably will be gone next year. by then we should have healthy ballard as well.

Na I think LB or O-Line,but I could be wrong on that one,Giants believe in taking best player on the board.Bet the house though Reese will address the TE issue somewhere within the draft,if we can't get one of the 3 I say get Egnew

No we will not go T.E we have 3 quality T.E so the first pick will be O.T or MLB trust me.

I think Reese will have to be thinking that Bennett may be looking to sign with the gIants to showcase himself to the league and that playing on the Giants with Eli may be the way to do that and if thats true then drafting a TE this year might be a good idea and that way the guy will be ready if and when Bennett walks...

i think we're looking for a band aid for when Ballard gets healthy again

</P>


Yeah, I think they see Ballard as the long term option at the position. He got hurt in Feb so he may not make any impact next year at all. </P>

Everyone wins Giants get a TE on the cheap and the Bennett gets starting snaps with a top 5 QB to prove himself

dont forget ballard is only signed for one year as well i believe.

we'll keep whichever one asserts himself and pair him with fleener

I like Ballard and hope he gets back to 100% but if Bennett works out here he is significantly faster than Ballard and a much better blocker...

Nope. The Signing of Bennett is just an insurence but the year after, the Giants may draft a te high.

Ballard isn't long term answer. He has PCL injury in one knee, the one that sidelined him for a few games and now an ACL tear in the other. The PCL is a recurrent type thing. He reinjured that previous injury this year, so I don't think Jerry will be counting on him long term. If Bennett does well with Giants who's to say we won't resign him for appropriate bucks.

hopefully he can make a few plays for us.

He doesn't strike me as the sharpest so expect him to cause a spike in Eli's INT numbers. (Though Manningham's absense may result in a push)

Definately an upgrade over the guys we have.

In the unlikely event that Bennett turns out to be a pretty beast TE for us, I think Coughlin would enjoy using more two tight end sets later in the season with a healthy Ballard & Bennett. Lord knows we could really use an improvement running the ball. At the end of the season, Reese can decide whether or not to lock up Bennett long term, franchise tag him, or just let him walk. I am hoping he turns out to be a great pass catcher, an excellent blocker, and a better teammate, and JR locks him up long term. That is the best case scenario, and I am not going to hold my breath.
