I was reading the season grades
http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/7571399/new-york-giants-final-2011-12-season-grades#awards

and it mentioned Ben Patrick as the worst acquisition. Can anyone let me know what exactly happened in that situation? I've forgotten.

he then un-retired and we lost rights to him somehow

Ah, ok thanks. I bet he regrets that now after the Giants won the super bowl.

Boss ditched the Giants to go to the Raiders way after the draft and Reese (who was expecting Boss to return to NY from Oakland to get an offer from the Giants, which never happened) tried to get a proven veteran TE for replacement. I think there weren't any outstanding FA TE's available at that time. The playing hand was forced. Thank goodness for Jake Ballard from the unknown!
