  • why dont we sign Deon Grant??

    According to the power rankings article on pft, Deon is still a free agent... He was an integral part of our defense the last few years... Am I missing something here? Why isn't he back?

    Btw, I love the new boards... The first overhaul was in 04 and these were ling overdue... Too hard we can't see the threads from our 07 run..

        Maybe they want to see what they got in the young guys. Really all it takes is one injury anyway

            My thoughts exactly. I'm sure if none of the others, like Sash, show much in the first week or so of camp, then we'll sign him up... Or if, god forbid, there's injuries.

                he will be great for depth...not to mention his leadership skills for the young guns.

                  I like Grant. I like his leadership and it would suck if Belicheck snatches him up out of spite.

                  That said his age may be playing against him and PF mentioned on one of the Giants videos how happy he was to have a LB corps with options and speculated that we may see less of the 3 Safety look and perhaps more conventional 3 LB looks not to forget about Kiwanuka's LB/DE hybrid skills...

                  But yes, I'd welcome back Mr. Grant in a heartbeat.

                    I doubt Grant would go...he did turn down the "Dream Team" last year.

                      It's probably a 2 way street right now with us not having a real spot and he still trying to pull down a better, more lucrative gig. As time progresses, the stars may very well align themselves and he'd be an excellent backup safety.
                      No one remembers who came in second.

                        Didn't we have this conversation a while back?

                        Thought everyone decided that he was a little long in the tooth and since we are deep at LB that they really didn't need him this year.

                          I would love to have him back. He is a great leader and a very reliable veteran player.

                            I like Grant but feel our veteran representation at safety is strong, but if our front office wanted him back I would be fine with that.

                              I think it is time to move on. Honestly, I was under the impression that he was going to retire.
