    NEW YORK GIANTS 2012 FREE AGENCY UPDATE: WHERE THINGS STAND

    NEW YORK GIANTS 2012 FREE AGENCY UPDATE: WHERE THINGS STAND

    "I did a brief look at the New York Giants'
    free agency situation over at SB Nation New York this morning. Because you guys
    are special I am giving you the expanded version, which includes a comment on
    every player.






    Welcome To New York
    TE Martellus Bennett ... Great low-risk,
    low-cost, high-reward signing. If Bennett bombs, no harm, no foul and the Giants
    move on. If he blossoms the Giants could find themselves a quality tight end for
    the next few seasons.
    S Chris Horton
    -- Maybe a special teams guy, nothing more.
    T Joel
    Reinders
    -- Most likely a camp body.
    TE Larry Donnell -- Camp body. Need
    enough tight ends to practice.




    Exclusive rights free agents
    TE Jake Ballard
    - Re-signed. ... Hopefully he gets healthy and contributes during the latter
    part of the season.
    TE Bear Pascoe - Will return. ... Love the Bear. Nobody
    else can have him.




    Restricted free agents
    CB Bruce Johnson
    - Re-signed. ... Missed two years now, so don't expect much.




    Unrestricted free agents
    CB Will Blackmon
    ... Umm, bye-bye Blackmon?
    CB Michael Coe -
    Re-signed. ... Might be a better player than we have really seen.
    CB Aaron Ross -
    Signed with Jacksonville ... Rip him if you want, but he has two Super Bowl
    rings.
    CB Terrell
    Thomas
    - Re-signed. ... Hopefully he can return and play at the same level
    he did in 2010.
    CB Justin Tryon -
    Re-signed. ... A BBV favorite. Glad he is sticking around.
    DE Dave
    Tollefson
    ... Not coming back. A fan favorite, but replaceable.
    DT Rocky Bernard
    ... Might be back. Insurance, again, for Marvin
    Austin
    .
    DT Jimmy Kennedy
    ... Don't let the door hit ya, big man!
    LB Chase
    Blackburn
    ... Back to the couch for Blackburn?
    LB Jonathan Goff
    ... Returning at the Giants price? We will have to wait and see.
    OT Stacy Andrews
    ... If he is healthy, bring him back.
    OT Kareem
    McKenzie
    ... Hope you find a job elsewhere, Kareem.
    OT Tony Ugoh -- Does
    anybody other Ugoh care one way or the other?
    P Steve
    Weatherford
    - Re-signed ... Thank God for that.
    S Deon Grant ...
    Best guess is he will be moving on or retiring.
    S Derrick
    Martin
    ... Won't be back.
    QB David Carr -
    Re-signed. ... Looks great in a baseball cap, and we hope that's the only way we
    ever see him.
    WR Michael Clayton ... Hard worker, but there isn't a spot for
    him.
    WR Domenik Hixon
    - Re-signed. ... If he still has the burst he can still help the Giants as a
    receiver.
    WR Mario
    Manningham
    - Signed with San Francisco
    49ers
    . So, Mario, who is going to throw you the ball in San Fran?
    WR Devin Thomas
    -- Should be brought back."

    To me the best signing for us so far is Weatherford. He made our ST's special again.

    I hope we bring back Devin Thomas because the kid has talent and 4.4 speed...

    the list is for free agents (restricted, unrestricted, exclusive rights). Jacobs was "released", but I guess you can count him.

    I'm glad Johnson is back, I liked what I saw from him.

    And before Hixon went down with that injury he was playing really well, making some great catches. I hope to see him to return to that form and stay injury free.

    I've always liked Hixon.

    I also would enjoy seeing Clayton back on the team. I don't think he saw as much of the field as he deserved. I know he hasn't lived up to his full potential in Tampa Bay or here, but I'd like to see an opportunity for him to get some playing time.
