          Florio is misrepresenting what Coughlin said re: voluntary. TC clearly said the OTAs were voluntary even if he would rather they weren't. Media spin.

              Wonder who the "sources" who said said this are. Not directly quoted from Nicks. Hmm?

              1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
              2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State

                  No. TC always makes it seem like voluntary isn't really voluntary.

                    He can take his time for all I care, as long as he's ready for Training Camp. He has every right to skip OTA's especially when he spent all last year from injuries that originated in OTA's. I hope he's 100% and has a great season.

                    Sidebar: I think the Giants made a huge mistake not signing him last year, he will have a big season and cost them millions more. The Giants are normally smart about when they resign or extend players (think about the discount they got with Tuck).

                      TC made it seem like he had no idea where Nicks was at all, like he dissapeared off the face of the earth or something...

                            He said in the first interview that they were voluntary. These are adults we're dealing with, not first graders.

                            Excerpt: ""At one point, he came and told me he was going to be here," Coughlin said. "Then, he was not here. The strictest interpretation is everybody knows it’s a voluntary program."

                            Nonetheless, Coughlin said he has found it hard to balance the fact that the OTAs are voluntary yet most teams consider them mandatory.

                            "How do I balance it?" he repeated. "Not very well. It would great to have all of our guys working and feeling good about the progress we’re making. That’s just from a coach’s perspective.

                            "You deal with some of this pretty much on a weekly basis. It’s a product of our system and that’s the way it is. I can complain all I want." Read more...

                            Of course he wants them all to attend, what coach doesn't? The CBA has watered practices down to a point I don't know why they bother putting pads on.

                              Look @ the BIG picture and you'll understand why he isn't @ OTA's. If the open market truly determined a players contract instead of the CBA, he would probably be at OTA's; but it isn't and he ain't. Would you risk everything you have for nothing? Go Giants! SB XLVIII @ home, beautiful!!!
