    The Giants have the most over 30's players in the league. They need to get younger. Paysinger is young and plays the same position. He may never be a star in the league , but then again we will never know what he is if we keep him buried on the depth chart behind 31 year old vets.

    Keeping around old players prevent younger guys from getting reps and developing. Sometimes you just say thank you and move on.

    michael boley was a far better pass rusher than anyone ever gave him credit for. unfortunately, he was always the best cover lb so he was rarely used in pass rushing. if he's lost a step in coverage, start blitzing him. he also led the nfl for a while in fewest missed tacked of anyone in the league

    I have to agree with most of the posters. We need to move forward and find new blood. LB's were a weakness on this team. If we can't upgrade with immediate talent, then maybe give him a look. Much like with Jacobs though...It's time to look ahead.

    Well, as I pointed above, he was among the bottom rated starting LBs in the league according to Pro football focus. He had negative ratings last year against the run, in pass coverage and in pass rush.

    Whatever he once was that was good, he wasn't it last year. He got no interest from teams as a free agent, and at 31, if he signs anywhere it is likely for a short term contract for very little money. I would not be opposed to him coming back, but only if it were for the minimum and if we were very unlucky in the way the draft fell leaving no LBs that interested the Giants. My preference , because it is better for the future of the team, is that we start either developing the young players who have lingered on the roster(like Paysinger) or we draft a suitable replacement.

    paysinger is far too slow and is not that strong. michael boley over him all day.

    would LT come back for league minimum?

    The first 3 weeks of a season don't count as part of that season? Did not know that.

    Paysinger isn't going to play weakside...we have Jaquain Williams and Rivers for that. Paysinger however could challenge for the SLB and be pretty good over there

    there was a pie chart on the homepage of which position Jerry Reese drafts the most and LB was the most frequent..I was shocked. We just suck at drafting them. For what its worth I actually like Paysinger tho I think he can be pretty good
