Except that it is several weeks into the FA period and he apparently hasn't gotten an offer yet . . . . </P>

lol this is what I was thinking. If his agent is talking to teams like the Raiders, Bengals and Browns...he's in a 'last resort' type of situation.

He's not getting a big contract anywhere, and I think he got two rings with the Giants (maybe only one). He can stick around with the Giants the rest of his career most likely, and collect a decent check, or he can go to some wreck of an organization and collect a check but never make the playoffs again. Unless he's looking to get as close to home as possible, moving on from the Giants doesn't make sense for him. An organization he can actually start in, is probably not going to be a very deep or strong team.

Tollefson deserves to get paid, and deserves a shot as a starter.

I wish him luck....he'll be a bigger loss than some people think.

Tollefson is the type of blue collar player that every team needs and I hope we resign him..
