    Tuck and JPP flipping sides?

    If someone could link my post to Rotowire (on my phone, so I can't link the app's info). Anyway, says JPP is set to become full time LE, and Tuck to focus at RE without as much shifting as years past. Doesn't sound right.

    EDIT:

    The original article comes from the National Football Post. I've never heard of them - are they credible?

    It is expected that free agent Osi Umenyiora will not return to the Giants, so the team is planning to compensate by using its remaining pass rushers differently. Instead of playing a rotation in which three men split the snaps pretty evenly as the Giants did last year, I’m told Jason Pierre Paul and Justin Tuck will get the majority of the snaps. And Giants coaches don’t want the ends flipping sides as much. The early talk out of the Timex Performance Center is Pierre Paul may become a full-time left end, with Tuck concentrating on the right side.

    Andrew Brandt is their guru and he's pretty knowledgeable. This is also being reported by Rotoworld

    Brandt is a business guy (ex-GM) ... not a guy qualified to comment on position changes.

    That and the move makes no sense ... Tuck is struggling at the strong side ... he'd be horrible from the weak side (his pass rush isn't the strong side of his game). The only thing I could think of if they attempt this, is that Tuck's run defense was awful last year as well (in which case, why is he even on the team still?!).

    JPP could play anywhere on the line.

    JPP could play serviceably anywhere on the defense... about the only thing he couldn't do is cover pure speed receivers.

    And honestly, with a little bit of practice, he could probably play a couple offense positons like TE and RB as well...

    The question was about the site being reliable, which it is.

    Ah yeah ... I wouldn't argue that.

    I just don't see Tuck playing the weak side nor do I see him holding up for a "majority" of the defensive snaps given his physical history.

    I do expect to see more Kiwi and/or whoever they draft (I think they're going DE in the first this year now).

    Why would they do this? JPP has played more effectively when he's been positioned at Right End.

    Tuck is likely to be ineffective on either side.
