Adam Schefter believes a reunion with free agent Steve Smith could be a
fallback option for the Giants if they fail to re-sign Mario
Schefter has been hinting at a
Smith/Giants reunion for over two months, so he's clearly not just
speculating. Smith had a disastrous 2011 with the Eagles, catching just
11 passes in nine games before being sent to injured reserve with a bone
bruise in his surgically-repaired left knee. Although he's still only
26 and now over a year removed from his microfracture operation, Smith
won't draw any interest until he proves he's healthy. Feb 4 - 12:07 PM
rumor has it shefter just read my post titled "smith wants to be a giant next year"...ok im not gonna bring that up again but i do feel smith is going to be looked at by reese. i know smith would love to come back and that he really regretted what happened...i think both parties regret what happened (giants and smith)...i actually expect us to give it serious consideration now that he's removed from his injury long enough for it to have healed.
we'll see tho, i trust our medical staff.
but i also believe we could resign MM. he wants to stay here, and i believe with the group we have now, nicks and cruz wouldnt mind taking a lil hit on their contracts to ensure MM can return. just a feeling.
i wouldnt be surprised if they all got roughly the same amount of money with nicks getting a lil more than cruz and cruz a lil more than mm. just my thoughts. and even still, wouldnt surprise me if we still look into signing smith.
i really hope we sign smith, he was excellent for us in 09, he had an amazing relationship with eli, they were always on the same page. excellent 3rd down slot kinda guy. hopefully, good thing about that is we wont have to worry bout that for a lil.
edit-smith is a perfect fit for what we do here on offense.
