    Giants' Training Camp Battles: Determining Their Fullback Situation

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/07/01/...ack-situation/

    Excerpt: "Henry Hynoski's knee injury at the end of May caused the New York Giants to do a lot of roster shifting and potential deal making, especially since he needed surgery and could, possibly begin the 2013 season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List.

    Because Hynoski has developed into one of the league's better fullbacks over the last two seasons, his injury in the offense is a tough pill for the Giants to swallow, but it hasn't had General Manager Jerry Reese panicking.
    Instead, Reese currently has two options. The first is signing free agent fullback Vonta Leach, who the team is pursuing right now and are currently battling the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans for. Leach is likely to land with Miami because they have the salary cap space to sign him to a big-time deal, so the Giants would have to get creative in order to sign Leach, but they also need money to sign rookie draft picks Justin Pugh and Ryan Nassib.

    Which leads into the second and current option: going with tight end Bear Pascoe as the fullback, which really isn't the worst solution that the Giants could have, especially since he can be a very productive player.

    As a tight end, Pascoe is an extremely strong blocker who can catch the occasional pass and do some damage in the open field. In the past, he has been asked to play fullback for the Giants, even though it's not his natural position and he is better suited as the team's second tight end. But with Hynoski out, it's situations like that which call for Pascoe to step in.

    If Pascoe goes to fullback, it allows Adrien Robinson to step in and be the second tight end for the Giants behind Brandon Myers and potentially get some early playing time that he wouldn't if Pascoe is the second tight end." Read more...

    with Brandon Myers being potential depth for the fb position maybe Vonta Leachs value with the Giants is minimal.

    If Leach wants $$$ or long term, probably ends up in Miami

    What does this have to do with the fullback position?

    I'm going with the guess that the poster meant Diehl would need the extra blocking help
