So at this rate, unless we get a great value pick, should we ignore WR for the 2013 draft? I think the draft picks we've spent there combined with Cruz's emergence make any more additions to the position sort of bloated. Guess it depends on if we keep or lose Cruz though.
1. JPP- That is the only easy one, then it gets tough..
2. Hakeem Nicks- All though hes injury prone, he is just such a sensational talent and as good as cruz is, i still give Nicks the edge in the competiton to be called our best WR..
3. Linval Joseph- Space eaters that can apply some pressure are tough to find.. He makes life alot easier on our DE's and LB's for that matter.. He does so many things that don't show up in the boxscore..
4. Vic Cruz- I love em.. Everyone knows i expected em to make the team as a UDF.. Its just this list is hard to do and someone has to be at or near the bottom of the list..
5. Kenny Phillips
JPP is probably the only one out of the bunch who is guaranteed to return. You don't let guys like JPP who can do everything at the position go away. Things get a little tough between Nicks and Cruz because all of us here are pretty smart and realize the odds of keeping them both are slim to none. The major factor here I feel will be how Reese views Nicks and his future mainly regarding his health. We have a history of letting DTs go and I can only hope someone like Kuhn steps up so we can let go of Canty instead. KP might come down to how good Will Hill plays as the season progresses but it's also possible (and more likely) that Rolle gets cut with his current level of play.
If veterans like Webster, Tuck, Rolle, etc. don't show up enough this season, we're going to have some serious cap room.
Furthermore, I would add that there are rumors that Chris Canty has been a bit quiet about exactly what procedure he had done to his knee this offseason. I am now starting to hear that he had mircofracture surgery, although he will niether confirm or deny. If that is the case, I do not think we can keep him here under his current contract.
This is the 1st offseason where Reese will have to make really hard choices.
I believe Joseph > Canty and yet Canty makes about 6 mil more. I believe the difference in Antrel Rolle and Will hill do not justify the near 7 mil difference in salary.
I really hope JPP doesnt put the screws to the Giants. Im sure they will have no problem paying him very well but if he makes demands like Revis we could have issues. Joesph I dont want to lose either. The guy is so underrated around the NFL by fans . I have a feeling coaches know who he is though
