  • steve smith???

    About 10 days ago I heard a rumor that our former Mr. Smith may be interested in returning to the Giants. He was reported as not being happy with eaglets. Can anyone confirm this. I know we're not real happy with the guy and we have Cruz ( our own great version of the guy I call the ghost, Wes Welker ). but it would be interesting. I'm always concerned about injuries like we had last year and I don't even like thinking about Cruz being injured but we don't know. If he did come back where would he fit in our roster and would Reese pay him what he thinks he's worth. He didn't last year. Oponions and remarks anyone. Please keep it clean I wanted to say some things but I respect our code on this site.

    I don't know what Steve Smith thinks he's worth at this point but he's not getting a lot of money regarless.

    As far as where he'd fit on the Giants....

    The bench sounds about right.
    My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of the Super Bowl 46: Dad, are the Giants gonna win?

    Burier: Yes.

    Burier: Yes. I promise.

      Smith is a free agent looking for work. So far, the GIANTS haven't shown any interest but anything can happen.

      Reese offered hi $1M last season with Smith coming off a microfracture. Smith took a more lucrative deal to play with the eagles. Smith played a few games and then re-injured the same leg, this time described as a bone bruise and went on IR.

      Hard to say what Smith thinks he's worth at this point but it could be telling that no teams have signed him as of today. I think he worked out for the Rams a few days ago.

        I really don't know if Steve Smith can play anymore. That knee may be enough to keep him out of the league.




        He will probably get a non guaranteed contract from someone to come to camp and compete for a job. But a guy who probably can't be more than a #3 or #4 WR usually has to play ST's too.




        Not sure if SS's career isn't over. Hope not for his sake.

              So dumb...soooooo dumb. The Giants were trying to take care of him. He would have never been rushed back and he most likely would of been resigned to the Giants because Mannigham is gone.


              Now no one wants him, McCoy didn't even like him, and now it's beginnings to look like its all over.

                  No they weren't. The Giants were acting is self interest. As they should be. I don't blame Smith on e bit for waht he did. He's a football player who wanted to play. The Eagles offered much mor money AND a chance to play. The Giants were offering a small contract and a trip to the PUP list.

                    I knew...as well as probably everyone else on here, that Smith screwed himself in the long term by signing that deal. A one year deal, that everyone knew would en up with nothing, was a horrible choice.

                    The opportunity cost will end up biting him in his ***. I couldn't care less what happens to him. I don't want him on the Giants, but if he's here I would obviously cheer for him, I rather not though.

                      Actually, all we "knew" was he took a better deal. There was a swirl of controversey regaring how the move was handled but there is no question he had a better offer from the eagles. Using hindsight now to say we knew he was screwing himself is, well, re-writing history.

                        SS is not wanted or needed here any longer. Neither is Shockley, tiki, robbins, tabor, Mitchell, cofield, Boss Or plax.

                        Tiki retired and promptly ripped Eli and giants org say we would never win a SB with Eli. We went our and won the following season with 3 untested Backs.

                        Jermemy got hurt and thought we couldn't do without him and his complaining. He sat and watched as unknown Kevin Boss help us win SB.

                        Robbins, tabor and Mitchell all left after we won SB in 07 for what they thought were greener pastures. We went out and added a few pieces and won another SB while they were all never heard from again.

                        Toomer retires, plax shoots himself, boss and SS go for new teams in FA. Are WR corps look like a shambles.

                        We FO out and draft and add people like nicks, MM and Cruz to replace them and again go out and win another SB with young unproven guys.

                        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:

                          Everytime we lose supposed irreplaceable guys we replace them and add a SB trophy.

                          Now we are faced again with replacing more guys that helped us win a title.. BJ, MM. Prob Ross, grant, goff kmac and others.

                          I think we will be fine as always. Plug in guys from within or the draft to fill the holes like we always have done without making a HUGE splash within FA. Bennett I don't consider a Hugh dollar signing.

                          We will replace Ballard with Bennett and Hopkins like he replaced boss and like boss replaced Shock.

                          We will replace BJ with Scott, brown and a draft pick. We replace the others same way and like always we wil, win another title for it
                          Football has been very, very good to us.

                            Not happening. Reese is going to stick with Hixon, Barden, Jernigan and a possible draft pick.

                            Heck, they signed some WR named Dan DePlama, probably for preseason depth.

                              Smith is a slot receiver and we have Cruz. We need a deep guy, not another slot receiver
