  • Why hasn't Giants free agent RB Orleans Darkwa signed yet? Here is an explanation

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...rt_river_index

    Excerpt: "Orleans Darkwa had a breakout year with a plate in his leg, so what can he do with full explosiveness?

    The soon-to-be former Giants running back is hoping to find out after undergoing surgery Wednesday to remove the plate he had inserted in December 2016, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Darkwa had a career-high 751 rushing yards in 15 games last season -- beating the odds after opening the season as No. 3 on the depth chart -- but remains a free agent. He originally signed with the Dolphins after going undrafted and stuck with the Giants from 2014-17." Read more..

    Apparently he's recovering from some injury or procedure. Seen on NFL network the scroll on bottom of screen he will be recovered in about 5 weeks. That's around mid June. So there's that.

            Are you thinking of Andre Brown, 2012 and 2013?

                        no it was the SAME season and he also got concussed on a kickoff return....But JR let bradshaw go because Brwon and Wilson were better at staying healthy.
                        Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

                          Darkwa did well with the plate in so maybe he should keep it in there.

                          Maybe get two plates.
