    GIANTS REACH OUT TO LINEBACKER CHASE BLACKBURN

    GIANTS REACH OUT TO LINEBACKER CHASE BLACKBURN

    "Contrary to earlier reports that the team would not look to re-sign Chase
    Blackburn
    , the New York Giants reached out to the linebacker on Wednesday as their primary
    option, Jonathan
    Goff
    , was in Cleveland visiting with the Browns.

    second half during their NFL NFC wildcard playoff football game in East Rutherford, New Jersey, January 8,
    2012. REUTERS/Ray Stubblebine (UNITED STATES - Tags: SPORT FOOTBALL)




















    A source told Jeff Roberts of The Record that while Blackburn "is pursuing
    other options," he remains "very much interested" in a potential return to Big Blue.




    The team has strongly maintained that their primary goal is to re-sign Goff
    and have him start at middle linebacker next season, so this could merely be a
    power-play aimed at putting pressure on him. However, Blackburn is a solid
    secondary option with the market for middle linebackers dwindling (Stephen
    Tulloch recently re-signed with the Detroit Lions).




    After being signed as a street free agent last season, Blackburn collected 26
    tackles and one interception in five regular season games. He added an
    additional 26 tackles and one huge interception (Super Bowl XLVI) in the
    playoffs. Goff, meanwhile, spend the season rehabbing after tearing his ACL in
    early September."

    he really played well and was always a good STer in the event we end up signing and starting Goff, but obviously there are only so many roster spots and we want to be able to sign all or most of our draft picks

    very good backup plan if goff goes elsewhere, he could even be potentially more cost effective towards the cap, and signing him doesnt limit us taking a mlb in the draft where as signing goff to some sort of deal could have allowed the giants to believe their mlb issue would be resolved

    Dude...seriously, if this comes to pass, if Goff sign elsewhere, and we bring back Chase, there are some people on this board that need to line up and eat some big time CROW!

    This would be a good pick up for special teams and a back up LB, give Mark Herzlich a chance at the position.

    Yes, but what matters is who comes out of camp as the starter

    I think if this happens, the Nickel package becomes our default defense.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)
