might be a stupid question, but NE DID just sign a TE to their roster. meaning, teams can still make acquisitions.

COULD the Giants sign Strahan for this one game? Imagine we could? I know we won't but COULD we?

Strahan, out of football shape and 40 years old would get AT LEAST 4 sacks on Brady if he was allowed to play in this game.

i have to assume strahan could be signed for this one game. i mean josh mcdaniels was signed right before the Denver NE playoff game. i dont know the rules tho, since strahan retired, he might not be a FA technically. I'm really curious as to if this is possible.

I'm tripping over the Coach Daniels deal. They hired the ex-Broncos coach at the beginning of the playoffs.

Depends on if Strahan would even be allowed to file papers to come out retirement in this segment of the season.

Even then, he would probably be a LIABILITY if he actually played some snaps.

Since he obviously filed for retirement, he would have to again file for reinstatement, something Goodell probably would never allow.

well as i stated im clueless on the technicalities. how would it matter if he was signed to the PS, point is, obviously teams are still allowed to make transactions. McDaniels was signed to be a NE Coach right before the Denver game.

and honestly, if you got lost on my post, maybe ur not the best person to be answering.

Have Plax ask the Jets for his release (he had a 1 year contract and his season's over), and then sign him to be the 4th WR.
