    We drafted Wayne Gallman instead. Blount would be redundant and we should save the few dollars we have to fill holes on this team. Blount can't create for himself anyways, and there's a strong argument to be made that our line can't create for him.

    First off there was never any deal to be dead. He has never even been in for a visit. So all the links were just speculation and rumors.

    As far as Gallman being drafted solving the issue. It doesn't. You still need a vet presence for those tough spots. Can't totally rely on basically two rookies. Vereen is mostly a 3rd down back and always hurt so you can't count on him. Darkwa​ is hit or miss.

    Also you can't compare Gallman a 6'1 guy that is 210 to Blount who is same height but a bruiser at 245. No comparison plus u need someone that has been in tight win or go home games late in the season
    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!!!

    I think this still happens, Someone in another thread said that there is a period after the draft where If you sign a free agent you have to give up a draft pick, after this period of time there should be a bidding war between the Giants and the Lions, The Giants still have a good amount of money to spend. also does anyone know when this free agent compensatory draft pick period end?

    Raanan had an article today saying that midnight tonight ends the period where a signed free agent counts toward the compensatory calculations and speculated you could see some movement on outstanding vets.

    He also speculated we could be in line for a 4th round compensatory pick next year -- primarily per Hankins signing.
