While teammates Terrell Thomas and Dominik Hixon have contract negotiations going on with Big Blue, Chase has not heard from the Giants at all.
The requests continue to flow in, one after another as if there’s not enough of Chase Blackburn to go around.“It’s been ridiculous, actually,’’ Richard Katz, Blackburn’s agent, told The Post Thursday. “He’s a pretty popular guy. His tale is an incredible tale.’’The question is whether that tale ended with Blackburn starting at middle linebacker for the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI or continues into the 2012 season. The NFL free-agency signing period begins March 13 and the Giants haven’t even contacted Katz, haven’t expressed any interest in re-signing Blackburn, who was one of a handful of players who shined brightest of all during the improbable Super Bowl run.
I think this is unfair to Chase, considering what he did for us, but it is a business, and we can definitely upgade the position.
Herzlich, Jones and possible Goff if healthy and resigned are going to battle it out. Maybe they get s stud MLB in the draft like Dont'a Hightower.
