Just passing this along, I didn't see it listed. Its from an article on bleacher report.

They list 5 free agents that the author feels would help the giants.

Andre Smith OT Cincinnati - said he is a solid right tackle and 26
Michael Bennett DE Tampa Bay - Martellus' brother 9 1/2 sacks last year, said Martellus is gonna work him
Phillip Wheeler OLB Oakland - said he is an under the radar type, good athletes
Sean Smith CB Miami - said he's a solid CB only 25
Jake Long OT Miami - said its a long shot but Miami might not be willing to resign him and he could use a fresh start

Was a decent article, never heard of a couple of these guys, we usually don't overspend in FA, but if the price is right maybe one or two of these guys end up Giants.

I'll gladly take any of them.. think Long is out of the question though..

Sean Smith would make sense.. big CB next to Prince & Hosley

I think if Marty can convince Michael to come here on a good price, we won't have to draft another DE...

Jake Long will be looking for 10 Million/year +, but I could see the other 4, exspecially Bennett.

If we cut Diehl we culd give that money to AndreSmith I guess? I think he would want decent money.
I dont think this is likely though.

if there would be a way to get Sean Smith i say pull the trigger. I assume we would cut Webster which I am okay with even though I'm a Webster supporter. I think Sean Smith and Amukamara on the outsides with Hosley in the slot next year would be deadly

again, i think that our spending on FAs is going to be really limited this year.

you look at our own FA list compared to other teams, especially in our division, and its staggering.

plus, its not like we've got alot of really big contracts expiring that free up alot of money.

when i see guys putting bennett and long on lists of FAs, even if the potential is slim, then i think people are overestimating the kind of flexibility we have.

we're trying to resign our starting left tackle and a WR that should be getting somewhere around $10 mill a season, along with our QBs cap hit going from $10 mill to $20 mill, all in the same year.

everyone should lower their expectations. Alot.

At most, we'll get a couple of solid depth-type guys for real cheap deals. No big splashes this year.

This definately.....my one buddy is a MIA fan, he had alot of good things to say about this guy. If we could lock him up, it could free up some other positions we NEED for the dratf.

if we can hang on to pieces like Boothe and our own Bennett, that will be success enough.

Andre Smith - Don't know alot about him.....would he be one of the cheaper OT out there?
Michael Bennett - looks good....would be a good addition to the dline rotation
Philip Wheeler - do we need another OLB though......don't we have enough? We really need MLB
Sean Smith - Agreed on this, he would be a great add if the price is right
Jake Long - no way we could afford him......but he is a great RT

Andre Smith would be my #1 choice followed closely by Sean Smith out in Miami
