Nice. He looked promising before that blood clot. Question is, is that kind of problem something that can recur?

Giants now have Rogers, Marvin Austin, Linval Joseph and Markus Kuhn at DT.

Now let's look at getting that OL revamped.

Interesting. He's getting up in age but if he can stay healthy he can be good depth at the defensive tackle position.

Linval is the only real proven talent that we have at DT. Rodgers was a good DT 3-4 years ago, Kuhn hasn't played nearly enough and Austin is constantly injured.

We need another DT

I believe Marvin Austin was just having lingering back problems from the beds at UAlbany campus. He should have no excuses staying at his own place near the luxurious Timex Center.

But seriously, he needs to produce this year.

If we get another DT in the 3rd or 4th round we'll be fine. What I'm trying to say is it's not as big of a need as everyone is making it out to be. OL should be priority.

how is Austin, Kuhn, and Rodgers solid???
Austin has done 0 and while l like Kuhn he is raw and coming off injury.
Rodgers is older and coming off injury..

not solid at all....IMO

I guess I'm one of the few Giants fans that wasn't too impressed with Kuhn. He made plays here and there but for the most part I saw a guy that got pushed around pretty good.

I can't imagine them re-singing him if there was a serious medical issue pending.

Nice. He looked promising before that blood clot. Question is, is that kind of problem something that can recur?Depends on the reason. If he has Factor V Leiden or another clotting disorder, there's a chance it could occur again. However, if he does have a clotting disorder he'd be on an anti-coagulant regimen (warfarin, lovenox, or another blood thinner) and he'd be getting his PT and INR checked on a regular basis. If he is on an AC regimen, depending on where the doctors want his clotting factor at he wouldn't get medical clearance to play (if the doctors wanted to keep his PT/INR north of 3, there'd be an increased chance of internal bleeding, especially bleeding in the brain).

Chances are better than not, he doesn't have any clotting disorder (assuming this is his first issue with clots), as he would have had to pass a physical to sign back. He was probably on a AC regimen for 6 months and the doctors will probably take weekly/biweekly blood tests to make sure his clotting factor stays within the norm.

And I also don't think we're "solid" with Joseph, Kuhn, Rogers, and Austin....Linval is the only one proven to be a full time starter out of that group.

Why the link? Wasn't this just an opinion? In any case, I'd say the jury is still out on Austin for sure. I'd like to see more from Kuhn as well. Rogers is a proven vet, but with mileage. Let's hope he has fully recovered and has more to give. All-in-all, I'd still say we are in a wait and see situation with the DT position. A good draft pick would still be nice.

Could be right but Linval and Shaun will babysit Austin . That been said it appears the FO is giving Austin his shot. Better take this opportuniry and run with it or else.

Hate to hear that. Hope its well managed. I'm impressed either way.It currently is. Unfortunately, last year she got bi-lateral pulmonary emboli after being non-symptomatic (and not on an AC regimen) for over 8 years. Definitely a scary situation. Messed up thing is her leg was bothering her for a bit, so the doctor sent her for an ultrasound. It came back negative. 5 days later her lungs were full of clots that broke off her DVT. Luckily, she's doing well now and on a course of treatment.

I agree. Right now, I have Marvin Austin pencilled in as a bust, and Kuhn hasn't proven anything either. And like you said, it's been a while since Rodgers scared anyone.

But still, at least this gives a little depth. I do think Rodgers can improve the unit.

We need another DTGranted we didn't get a full time starter in Rogers, but we did get a solid rotational piece to add to the mix. It may not be the​ answer, but it certainly is part of it.

Now let's look at getting that OL revamped.

I think that DT still needs some attention. I'm not crazy about the talent at the position, aside from Joseph.

Those are just names filling out roster spots, not exactly great talent. But Rogers is better than nothing, which is basically what Austin and Kuhn are until they prove otherwise.

Austin hasn't done anything, and Kuhn has done next to nothing. Don't even think that Kuhn will make it out of training camp this year, and Austin may not either.

Hell yeah! Pardon my language but this guy deserves an applause. He is a giant. Literally. 6'4" 350lbs!!! He demands a double coverage, which would allow somebody by the name of Jason Pierre-Paul to slip on the outside and get a major sack on a quarterback!!!Epic! Here's to hoping he stays healthy all season. Cheers.

They need to sign a FA and draft one that ca play right away. They are far from solid at DT.

When Shaun Rogers was young the guy was a real, real good DT, and a great Run Stopper.

If we can get some High Level production from him it will be a huge boost.

I dont think u can count on Bernard or Rodgers to make the team if 1 makes it your ahead of the game I agree.. Don't we also have to worry about Shaun Rodgers being motivated? Weren't we all kinda hereing rumblings of him being a dink last yr before his injury? I could be wrong though.. Either way, hes well past his prime and coming off a lost season.. I think were just so thin at DT, reese is trying to bring in a old vet that has had a good career, trying to get one more solid season outta him, while not expecting much... Kinda like a New York Yankee scrap heap signing if u will.. Hope for the best, while trying not 2 get ur hopes up to much...
