  • What do u guys think of bringing in Glenn Dorsey for a fairly cheap contract???

    Dorseys basically been a big bust for KC, and is now a FA, but his skill set has always been more suited for a 4/3 and maybe changing systems would be able to get him on track.. Its a worthwile gamble, as hes still young, and we have yet to see em in a base 4/3 , and we could use a young DT with Austin looking like a bust, and bernard a FA, and Canty getting up there in age..

    Also, DT would be a positon we could focus on less in draft.. I think its worth the gamble and the money lines up...

    On some websites he is considered a Top 50 free agent, so i doubt he will come cheap.

    after reading the article it seems Dorsey is more a run stopper than a pass rusher, well run stopping is exactly the kind of help our Dline needs, the Giants don't usually get much passrush from the DT anyway but what they do need is help stopping the run

    Ya, its a really good read.. I think he'd be a fine additon to our run defense and i think he'd be extra motivated to show hes not a bust ... Add that in with price, and it seems like a Jerry Reese special..

    Except that isnt at all what the giants ask their DL to do.

    article doesnt answer that question though.

    From what Ive watched, Dorsey is not very good moving laterally, and struggles to create separation between himself and the OL, and I have never seen much of a burst from him. He does have a much better ability to anchor than people think though.

    To make it simple, imagine Dorsey coming out of college added another 50 pounds, and you have what he is now. I dont know if he added any weight, but thats how he plays.

    Odd that that is almost the exact opposite of what he was drafted to do, but I really don't think he has any untapped upside in pass rush ability.

    Giants stop the run however with penetration, not 2 gapping. So I'm not sure he is a fit at all

    I think he would be worth bringing in at a reasonable contract.
