    Happy for Bing. Maybe he will get a shot next year. They seemed to really like him going into camp but he couldn't shake an injury. That guy is super fast. Not that it means everything, but with the secondary is getting younger and faster. Adding him they could have a very fast secondary.

    Is this officially the end of "The Beckum Experiment"? Until now, I never actually realized this, but Beckum was drafted prior to Gronk, Hernandez and Graham. Could the Giants drafting him and trying to make him a hybrid given creedence to this concept, and perpetuated the drafting of the afformentioned players? I realize T.Gonzalez is like the godfather of the basketball, athletic TE prototype, but have there been many attempts since him to fit this mold?


    I hate philthy. The teams, their fans, the city. I don't really mind the cowgurls, they're so dysfunctional I almost pity them. And the foreskins are just an afterthought.

    Torque it till it breaks, then back off a quarter turn.

    Yes, because if we didn't stash Beckum, teams would be lined up to steal him away!

    What would be the purpose of "stashing" a guy who is on the last year of his deal and will not be resigned?
