  • Will we be able to resign Bennett after turning him into a stud?

    Or will we lose him

    I loved the contract we signed him to... now not so much........ "prove me" might turn into "pay me"


    Yes he is STUD, 3 games is 3 games. He's always had the talent just didn't have the coaching, focus, determination or opportunity... did I mention coaching?



    Eli makes everyone around him better but Bennett is a very good TE, with a world of upside.

    It depends. It seems he has started a lot of good relationships here. Maybe he'd be willing to sign 4-5 years at 4.5 mil per. I see Canty, T2, and Diehl getting the axe this offseason though which will free up a fair amount of space.

      if he continues at the pace that he's been going, he will be very expensive. I doubt he returns in Giants uniform.

          With Kp,Cruz,JPP,& Nicks on deck, keeping Bennet & Rivers after this season may be unlikely..

            JPP, Nicks, and Cruz will be getting big deals...
            Nicks I see getting 7 years, 56 mil
            Cruz getting the same
            JPP getting 10 years 100 mil.
            KP is looking at 4 years 15 mil.
            Rolle is probably looking at a restructure
            Canty, Diehl, and T2 cut
            Osi is going to walk
            Re-sign on of Kiwi or Rivers (though Kiwi has taken less to stay here before)
            Tynes will also be getting an extension.. 5 years 7 mil I expect.
            Eli will restructure too probably...
            And I will not be surprised of Bradshaw gets cut...

              Eli has made Bennet what he is, just like Smith and Boss, have you heard anything from those two when they left the Giants. Just like Ernie said, this kid makes everyone better, when Ernie went to Ole Miss to watch Eli he noticed that Eli had no NFL talent around him and he still had them playing at a high level. So how is Ole Miss doing since Eli left.

                meh, i'd be nervous signing him to a big number anyway.

                he spent alot of time in dallas under the cloud of lack of disipline and commitment.

                it would be hard to give him a huge payday after only one year where he had to really sing for his supper.

                ESPECIALLY when we've got guys that none of us (nicks, cruz, jpp, tuck) would have the same questions about and ALL of them are due really huge paydays.

                call me crazy, i'm skeptical when a guy has spent 5 years in the league and the one year that will primarily determine what he'll get on his next long term deal is the only year he really shows up.

                  NO, the Giants will get yet another nobody and make them a very good TE - just like Boss.

                    can this even be done with our salary cap situation?

                      He'll probably be gone. Cap room is tight and we need help on the OL badly. We'll find a serviceable TE and roll with it. It could be Robinson who knows and Pascoe is a solid back-up.
                      No one remembers who came in second.

                        Draft a TE. Got some great guys for this system coming into the draft this year.

                          Why would be need Bennett? Beckum will be back next season.

                              Depends... Canty, Diehl, Bradshaw, and T2 take up a lot of room. CWebb might even be getting a restructure as well.
