    I think Ballard is that guy or will be one of those guys long term. The Giants need to either draft someone in one of the first 3 rounds who can play right away or sign a cheap free agent to fill in while we wait for the return of Ballard, and also to provide deph once Ballard comes back. But the Giants cap figure is too high to break the bank on any one free agent.

    Long term he probably will, but he _could_ start the season on PUP, so we'd have to draft one or sign one on the cheap..Beckum won't be ready either probably.

    A guy like Dwayne Allen or Coby Fleener might end up being the BPA at #32 overall in this year's draft so don't be surprised if we take a TE in the 1st round.

    Scott Chandler BUF

    Jeremy Shockey CAR (lol, nope!)

    Richie Brockel CAR

    Kellen Davis CHI

    As long as they don't have to pay anymore then 500,000. I think going with a draft pick or a rookie free agent might be the best option. Were really only talking about 6 weeks and if they have a whole training camp to work with the guy we might end up with another keeper. You never know.

    If the class of OL are gone by then, it will be the better picks.

    Ballard is what he is and that's a solid BACK UP. He is not a starter and it would be best to get a real recieving threat so when they double Cruz they wiill have to go 1 on 1 with a linebacker on an athletic TE.
