  • Giants' Franchise Tag: Will Beatty? Martellus Bennett? Kenny Phillips?

    http://www.bigblueview.com/2013/2/14...-bennett-kenny

    Excerpt: "Pro Football Focus is looking at all 32 NFL team on this Valentine's Day and projecting which player on each team is most likely to receive the franchise tag. For the New York Giants, PFF opines that the decision is a debate between offensive tackle Will Beatty, tight endMartellus Bennett and safety Kenny Phillips.
    PFF writes:

    This season, Beatty finally became the franchise left tackle the Giants had been waiting for. His +10.9 run block grade was the third-best of any left tackle, and he allowed only three sacks and no hits of Eli Manning.

    Bennett’s breakout season earned him our fifth-best tight end grade, but his run blocking took a step-down and he’s already spoken of offering the Giants a hometown discount. Phillips was reliable on the field, with just 16 yards allowed in coverage, but injuries have too often kept him off the field. While the rest of New York’s offensive line ages, locking up its best and youngest starter makes the most sense for the Giants." Read more...

      Beatty is the only possiblity for the franchise tag IMHO.

      I actually think that we would be the laughing stock of the NFL if we tagged Bennett.

        Sign Beatty long term

          Agreed Beatty is the most important of the 3 to get re-signed.

                If we had a stronger line I might lean towards Bennett, but as it is, it would have to be Beatty

                        Honestly, there's only one problem with tagging Beatty, and that's the fact that the tag value for Beatty is estimated to be around $9.2M. So we'd be giving up big money on him either way. I'd rather a long term deal be worked out to be completely honest...

                          The Giants have to find a way to get a long term deal done on Beatty. He's protecting our franchises blind side, and furthermore he's a solid left tackle. If they can't get a deal done then they must resort to franchising him. What other choice do they have? Risk losing him and trying to draft a legitimate left tackle?

                          The draft is a crap shoot, for every Joe Thomas there is a Tony Mandarich.
