  • Reese is Doing A Good Job So Far With Free Agency

    IMO I think Jerry Reese is doing a very good job adding to our team during free agency. Yes he did not sign any big names which he cannot due to salary cap restrictions, but he is getting good solid people to strengthen our team.

    1. Dan Connor is definitely an upgrade over Chase Blackburn
    2. Louis Murphy is a very adequate replacement for Hixon and Barden
    3. Josh Brown will more than be adequate in replacing Tynes
    4. Cullen Jernkins is a far better player than Canty
    5. Mundy and Ross take the sting out of losing Phillips who is hurt
    6. If we sign Brandon Myers he will prove to be better than Bennett

    Hey are these the top guys available? Probably not, but like I said with our cap situation Reese got some real good talent that will improve this team. All he has to do now is resign Boothe and get Cruz to take their offer and we are done until the draft. I can honestly say he has done far better job than Philly, Dallas and Washington in improving the team.

          Brandon Myers is only better than Bennett if youre playing fantasy football.

            That makes no sense. More catches and just as many TD's than Bennett. Played with a horrible Carson Palmer. The sky is the limit with this guy with Eli at the helm. Admit blocking not as good but Mike Pope will fix that. If not then thats why we got Bear Pascoe who is an excellent Blocking TE.

              JR doesn't sign big names with very few exceptions like Rolle. His M.O. in free agency is fill holes in the roster with under the radar guys. In that regard he is following his play book to a tee. What we need is a big draft that reloads our OL and adds depth at DL and LB. Wouldn't mind finding a starter at LB in the draft either.
              No one remembers who came in second.

                I think he has agreed to reduce his pay, but nothing has been signed yet, last I heard. Maybe I missed something since this morning. Do you have a link to an article where his salary has been reduced?

                  I would say Reese has done as good of a job as he can, considering the limited cap space the Giants went into free agency with.

                  I'm ok with most of the signings, not a big fan of the Connor signing. But heck, its only a 1 yr deal. Maybe he will stay healthy and prove me wrong.

                    I still wouldve like the gmen to kept blackburn.I was kinda shocked seeing they re-signed rivers but not blackburn.That pick we have in the first round will be very interesting. Im glad ross is back,always liked him over webster.Philips i was surrpised would go to eagles,thought he would take a cut and stay.I still think they will bring back bradshaw in june.

                      You've "always" liked Ross over Webster?

                      I couldn't disagree more. I've NEVER liked him more than Webster. Last year is probably the only year where you could even try to make that argument.

                          it seems Reese is desperate to fill all these holes that he'll sign anyone, but with this limited cap space he's only able to sign scubs.

                            Actually, it is safer this way to give guys one year deals. It's an incentive for them to play harder and in case they stink or get injured, it's no big deal.

                              Don't be so harsh on them....I bet lots of people thought Stevie Brown was a scrub when we signed him. Boy did he ever help us out last year. Same thing with Bennett and many of our signings. Patience my friend....
