  • Do you think TE Colt is worth the risk?

    Hes obviously a gifted athlete and was considered a future 1st round talent. He has had many issues and is drug past is recorded.

    Now how do you guys feel about giving him a shot as an UDFA with a rookie minimum. giants have a strong organization that could give this kid the stability he lacked at Oregon.

    What do you all think?

      Considering our new push for team Captains, he may not be a good fit. I would love to see him signed as a situational pass catcher. Low Risk, High Reward.

          We will stick with what we got unless a proven talent comes along. No need to take a chance on some project kid with off the field issues.

            Agree.. Don't you find it odd that even some of the teams know for signing those type players with off field issues have not even reached out to him to offer an UDFA contract. That's saying something
            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!!!

              This kid may need to take a year off and "show me". Apply for the supplemental draft as a reinvented, polished NFL football player. I sincerely hope so.

                Here is an article on him from yesterday

                http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...ted-free-agent

                (I know it's bleacher report, but . . . . )

                The thing I find interesting about the article is that there is not a single mention in that article about the kid getting his act together. If it said that he's been clean and spent time in a treatment center or something like that, you might be able to justify giving him a chance. (Then again, it's the bleacher report, so maybe they just missed that part).

                Quite frankly, his tweets about Sandy Hook elementary are more disturbing than his drug use. How do you think that would play here in NY? You can't fix crazy.

                  He sure has issues but I wouldnt say hes a project, hes kindve like Burfict where he has issues but can contribute day 1, he wouldnt be the only UDFA we sign this year with off the field issues (quarles)

                    Putting aside Lyerla's coke issues, his conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook school shooting wouldn't play well in New York. The last thing the Giants need is some loose cannon in the biggest media market in the country going on about government conspiracies.

                      I'd sign him with no hesitation. Kids make mistakes and do stupid things all the time. I think he's talented enough to gamble on, put him through camp and see what happens. If he screws up, you just cut him. If he doesnt, you got the absolute biggest steal of the draft. Ive been mentioning his name for weeks now. I know his past, but we have no TE and if theres just a small window of hope, Id say its worth the risk

                        There have been many other more prominent figures that have also expressed their opinions about Sandy Hook being a conspiracy. I personally know some people that know some people that have expressed very disturbing factual info. Some their opinions have been leaked on Google. Regardless, he has the right to have whatever political / conspiracy opinion he believes in.

                        His opinions have absolutely nothing to do with football. Every one has their own. His personal conduct and drug problems should only be relevant to the NFL..

                          I agree, look at how well Burfict turned out for Cincy and he did just as much if not more dumb stuff in college and leading up to the draft, if Reese signs him he looks like a genius at the end of the season. Plus with all the team captains we drafted theres going to be a considerable amount of added leadership to keep him in check.

                            And we have the right not to sign cokeheads with ridiculous and offensive conspiracy theories about a mass murder of children in our backyard. See how this freedom thing works?

                            **** him.

                              Exactly, its his freedom of speech, as it is yours to say what you think. More importantly, If our FO is hesitant enough to not draft a TE this year, then they can at least have the balls to roll the dice on someone who could be the steal of the year.
