  • Reese: Big Blue Won't Rule Out Manti

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/fo...icle-1.1271921

    Excerpt: "There was no room for Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Canty or Michael Boley on the cap-strapped Giants roster. But there just may be room for Manti Te’o.

    Giants general manager Jerry Reese certainly seemed open to that prospect on Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine, just hours before the controversial Notre Dame linebacker met the press at Lucas Oil Stadium. Reese has already made several cold-blooded moves, axing team leaders Bradshaw, Canty and Boley over the past few weeks, and more could be on the way.

    “It’s a long time before we play in September,” Reese said. “I wouldn’t doubt if there’s more changes.”
    One of those changes could include drafting Te’o, whose scandal has been “blown out of proportion a little bit,” as Reese put it.

    “We’re more interested in what kind of football player he is than anything else,” said Reese, who drafted a character risk in corner Jayron Hosley a year ago. “We’ll investigate it and we’ll see how it goes.” Read more...

    From the article that big link in the middle took me to:
    LSU defensive tackle Benny Logan, projected to be a mid-round pick, was quick to share his favorite team with the crowd. Logan, who grew up in Louisiana, apparently bleeds Big Blue.
    “I’m a Giants fan,” he gushed. “No matter who’s out there, the Giants have a great pass rush. Just watching those guys is something unique and special. Each guy has their own style of play, and each guy brings something different to the table.
    “They fly around the ball,” he continued, “no matter who’s at the defensive end position. They’re just very creative on the defensive line.”
    THE NEXT JPP?
    Honestly, i wouldn't be against reaching a tiny bit for a Giants fan. The guys that bleed blue tend to leave more out on the field than they otherwise would. Not saying that non-Giants fans don't (guys like Cruz for example), but someone who has something going for the organization even before draft day would make this even sweeter. A second on this guy wouldn't be a bad deal from where I'm standing at all...

          I think in an interview he said he was definitely affected by the whole hoax thing and it showed during the game.

            Not to sound cynical, but taking one of the biggest needs on the team in the 1st round? It doesn't sound like Jerry Reese at all. We haven't had anything but an average set of LB's for the past 20+ years, and I dont expect that to change anytime soon. He goes BPA over need 99% of the time, which is why we're currently so thin at OL and DT

              I guess maybe we are one of the 18 teams manti has left to interview with then? They said he met with 2 teams .already. . Packers were one
              Football has been very, very good to us.
              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
              But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

              # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

              1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
              2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
              3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
              4-New York Giants!!!
              5-NE
              Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    Datone Jones is another guy who also grew up a Giants fan. He said that his play style is most similar to Tuck and Osi.

                      yeah I believe Teo mentioned in his presser yesterday that he met with the Packers and Texans. But he did not mentioned the other 18 teams, but according to that other thread, Reese plans on interviewing him, just not at the combine.

                      I can see the Texans having an interest, especially since Cushing is coming off that ACL tear. I hope he performs well tomorrow. He ultimately may fit better into a 3-4 defense.
