thats why i think a 1 year deal would be best for both parties. Giants get another year of the DL and can groom his replacement, and Hankins can get another shot at a big contract next year when he'll only be 26.
I understand everybody's love for a 3 tech .... but maybe the giants value the thought of 2 run stuffing 1 techs ....and I don't blame them....it obviously worked last season .... nobody ran on us
1st- OJ Howard, TE
2nd- Caleb Brantley, DT
3rd- Dorian Johnson, OG/RT
4th- Samaje Perine, RB
5th- Damontae Kazee, CB
6th- Ejuan Price, DE/OLB
7th- Tedric Thompson, FS

The thing with Hank is he is kind of his own hybrid of a 1 and 3 tech DT. Nick Fairley had three good pass rush seasons with 5.5, 6 and 6.5 sacks. In Hankins two full seasons he had 3 and 7 sacks. I think he is very capable of getting after the QB. Hope we resign him to see if he can get some of that pass rush going this year.
LT (132.5) -> Strahan (141.5) -> Osi (75) -> Tuck (60.5) -> JPP (43) -> ???

We need to control the run game as well as get to the QB.
The idea of Z-Cunningham is growing on me.
Re-sign Hank on solid team deal - keep d-line as is with guys like Kennard/Diggy assisting with QB pressure. A kid like Cunningham - in combo with a L-Collins gives us 2 guys close to the line of scrimmage that read quickly and can make plays (defend run/pass) while also being pass-rush (blitz) options.
Plus with solid DL and very solid secondary -- would be nice to add a play making LB with great instincts...movement.
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!!!
Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

is Hank worth the money though? I thought he'd have a great year next to Harrison, but he only managed 3 sacks playing next to the best dt in football. time to move on.
