I guess we really don't know for a fact whether the Giants were secretly making a play for this guy but 4 years for ONLY $14M (https://twitter.com/#!/ProFootballTalk/statuses/182855890620264450) is super cheap for a guy with his skillset in a salary cap era. He would've been a steal and perfect complement to AB for that price
He can carry it 25 times and withstand a pounding, has well-above average hands catching out of the backfield and is better than Jacobs in short-yardage, in my opinion.
Really disappointed he isn't in Blue after we let BJ walk. Same guy except younger, lower to the ground, with better hands, and quiet.
