    GIANTS ENTER SECOND WEEK OF FREE AGENCY

    GIANTS ENTER SECOND WEEK OF FREE AGENCY

    "The Giants enter week two of free agency having strengthened the depth in the
    secondary while also adding a tight end in Martellus Bennett.


    They re-signed two of their biggest free agents in Terrell
    Thomas
    and Steve Weatherford. The next guy they likely
    want to re-sign is Jonathan Goff.

    They did lose
    Mario Manningham in free agency, as expected, and Aaron
    Ross
    could follow Manningham to another team soon as well. The Giants
    could be looking for veterans on the cheap from here on out to remain fiscally
    responsible since they have to pay some of their young stars down the road.


    Below is an constantly updated list of their own free agents and free
    agents signed from elsewhere:

    Exclusive rights free
    agents:

    TE Bear Pascoe -- Will return.


    Giants unrestricted free agents:
    CB Will
    Blackmon
    -- Saw some time on special teams as a returner but Giants
    need to upgrade at returner. Coaching staff likes Blackmon.
    CB Aaron
    Ross
    -- Ross visited Bengals and the Redskins. Could be the next Giant
    to leave.
    DE Dave Tollefson -- Popular member of the team
    and provided great depth but likely could get more on market than Giants willing
    to offer.
    DT Rocky Bernard -- Giants brought him back last
    year on the cheap and could again this year.
    DT Jimmy
    Kennedy
    -- Largely inactive most of last season.
    LB Chase
    Blackburn
    -- Huge addition late in the season. Can the Giants bring him
    back on the cheap? Giants have had some discussions with the linebacker.
    LB
    Jonathan Goff -- Giants want the MLB, who is coming off an ACL
    injury. Hard seeing him not returning but then again same could be said about
    Steve Smith and Kevin Boss last year.
    OT Stacy Andrews --
    His brother, Shawn, tweeted that Andrews is healthy after a blood-clot scare
    that landed him in IR. Giants liked him as extra blocker when healthy.

    OT Kareem McKenzie -- Long-time RT expected to move on in
    free agency. David Diehl says he will play LT or RT if needed.
    OT
    Tony Ugoh -- Filled in for Andrews as extra blocker.

    S Deon Grant -- Loved by teammates and Perry Fewell's third
    safety. Giants did sign backup safety Chris Horton.
    S Derrick
    Martin
    -- Provided team with much-needed depth but Thomas, Coe, Tryon
    and Johnson were re-signed and team added Horton.
    WR Michael
    Clayton
    -- Veteran contributed on special teams before landing on IR
    with injury.
    WR Devin Thomas -- Came up big on special
    teams in the NFC Championship. ESPN Dallas reports Cowboys may be interested.


    Giants free agents re-signed:
    CB Terrell
    Thomas
    -- Will start opposite Corey Webster once knee is ready.
    P
    Steve Weatherford -- Punter gets five-year deal.
    TE
    Jake Ballard -- Exclusive rights free agent re-signed.

    WR Domenik Hixon -- Attempting to come back from second
    consecutive torn ACL.
    CB Bruce Johnson -- Restricted free
    agent re-signed, adds depth at corner.
    QB David Carr --
    Re-signed with the Giants according to Newark Star-Ledger.
    CB
    Michael Coe
    -- Adds depth at corner.
    CB Justin
    Tryon
    -- Adds depth at corner.

    Giants free agents
    departing:

    WR Mario Manningham -- Signed a
    two-year deal with San Francisco.

    Free agent signings:

    S Chris Horton -- Signs a one-year minimum deal, adds
    depth.
    TE Martellus Bennett -- Wants to prove what he can
    do as a starter.
    T Joel Reinders --He is 6-8 and 317
    pounds, was in camp with Cleveland in 2010. Started out as a basketball player
    at the University of Waterloo in Canada.
    TE Larry Donnell
    -- The 6-6, 269-pound tight end had 38 catches for 432 yards and 11 touchdowns
    at Grambling State from 2007-10."

    I never did figure out Goff. Sometimes he would blow up a play in the backfield but more often he ran himself out of the play. I'm not sure if his reads were weak/late or he didn't change direction so well. If it is the latter, a repaired acl won't help. Personally, I can take him or leave him. we won a SB without him and have a stable full of younger LB. The price really needs to be right with him imo.
    No one remembers who came in second.
