    They want #6 for him and Bill.

    That said IF there was enough Cap Space to be created to bring in a Vet RB I would go with Blount over AP. You can get more years out of him.

    However with still no deal for Big Hank or Robinson and having to sign the Draft Picks I just do not see how they can get creative enough to bring in big names like AP or Blount.

    Maybe they are biding their time knowing every day that goes by that they are still a FA (Kind of like Hankins & Robinson) the price to sign them is driven down and your getting and transitioning more into that 3rd phase of the FA period and moving away from the 2nd

    If that is the case one of these two could opt to take a cheaper 1/2 year deal the Giants can swing???

    I am all for that. They can still pick up a RB mid Draft which would make Darkwa a late Cut probably
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    U bring up a good point. We have his lead blocker

To the people who say he doesn't fit, I think his veteran presence can only be good for the offense, plus Mcadoo needs to make a few adjustments to his predictable offense and we should run out of the I form more anyway. No he won't be a 3 down back for us, but him, Perkins and a little Vereen would be a very solid RB depth chart going into the season. Plus he'd be the best mentor you can ask for when it comes to Perkins development. I think the mixture of veterans (Eli Marshall AP Vereen) and young guys (Beckham Shepard Perkins), there's no reason why this offense can't improve significantly. Not to mention these guys are all hungry to win now. Go get him Reese!!
    I totally agree AP Would be who I would sign if I was the Giants! he might come cheap because he abused his son? might be why no one wants him, hence why he might come cheap. when you don't have a lot of cap space you take what you can get, and he would improve our running game!

    Agree with flip, I think the patriots will snag him. If so, I'll be completely happy about it. I understand his veteran presence, but I think we have a good one in Perkins and would like to see him continue to develop.
    NFL Draft (Realistic Hope):

    Rd 1
    Garrett Bolles - OT
    David Njoku - TE
    Zach Cunningham - OLB

    Let's get AP. Oakland just shelled out for a crappy tight end who looked good because of Aaron Rodgers.

    The off the field crap has nothing to do with it. The fact is, he's 31 which is close to 100 in running back years. If Ray Rice had had 1500 yards the year before the incident he would have been picked up. If Greg Hardy had had 10+ sacks the year he was on Dallas he would have gotten a decent contract from somebody last offseason.

    I can't believe how cheap Murray got signed for, we spent almost the same money on Rhett Ellison...

    Go get AP he's gotta be even cheaper than Murray

    Close to 31 BUT he has missed 2 years of running back wear and tear and also seems to be the fastest healer on the planet with his own hyperbolic chamber.

    The knock on AP is he not a good pass blocker.
    L. MURRAY runs to upright causes him to be a target and injury prone.
