Antrel: "(Finley) was telling me Ben McAdoo is a brain, that he’s going to keep defenses guessing, he’s very smart. I just said ‘Yes!’"

Antrel on Finley: "He said that he would love to be a part of the Giants."
Interesting stuff, I doubt he can pass a physical anytime soon however.
He's kind of a knucklehead, and he's silly enough to have called out aaron rodgers publicly for not getting him the ball enough.
the Giants are a very conservative organization when it comes to neck injuries. They seem to have a lower tolerance in their physicals and fail players that other teams would pass (again, going back to Al Wilson from Denver in that trade).
He drops too many passes anyway
Rolle should get us some LB's
can't forget those passes he dropped in the NFC divisional game in 2012.
Damage goods...one good hit to the dome and waiver wire it is
The Giants go through tight ends like crazy. They always get injured and their head concussed. If Finley weighs only 245, he'd probably not last very long on the team.
Long term, not so much. Fortunately I don't think there will be a big market for him so a prove it type deal could very well work out.
He has drops and injuries to overcome but he's still a starting TE that can open up the middle a little. Something we sorely need.
It wouldn't be a bad opportunity to get him cheap.
I wouldn't sign him and call it a day but I'd certainly be ok with throwing him into the mix.
the Giants could always cannibalize parts from Adrien Robinson. Maybe Reese can use Robinson for something after all.
could do a lot worse than locking up jermichael headed into the draft
A guy with totally suspect hands and an unwillingness to block. Not the type of TE the Giants need
under the old system you say no way but as soon as mcadoo was hired this made a ton of sense. mcadoo actually lives in this era and utilizes his tight end in the passing game
*finley drops too many balls but the fact is he's an IMPACT PLAYER at a position we currently suck at.
*he is close with mcadoo. (mcadoo used to be the tight ends coach at GB and word is they had a tight relationship)
*system install - brand new system. wouldnt it be nice for mcadoo to have a few guys in the lockerroom who know WTF is going on?
if we can come away with mack and finley in ufa it will cost $$$ but it will upgrade the team tremendously. u want bang 4 ur buck and these guys provide it
Hey Antrell, give Scott Chandler a call please.
but why does that matter? And we don't know what offense McAdoo is running. It's not like any player that comes from GB is going to know the offense ahead of any Giants players. I would highly doubt they're just going to copycat everything Green Bay does.
contract. We have enough issues with guys with neck injuries..
Would/Will McAdoo recruit Finley? That would tell us a lot more than Rolle's recruiting!
Finley? Nah, we should stick with Myers.
and I don't mean a serious injury but even just a scare or a hard hit.
Hearing him repeat what his kid told him has to break anybody's heart.
I really think our money could be better used on a different player. If he was to come here i would hope it is on a one year prove it deal as someone pointed out before but not like Myers' deal. I don't want to eat up cap space to get out of the deal. Make it a true one year deal otherwise there are better options out there. He has been potential potential potential and has never really lived up to the hype.

- ( New Window
was calling out for lack of effort late in the season.
but I would love to see more passion out of our players (Like Cruz but not overboard like Shockey).
|"He's an extreme talent, he's an exceptional guy,'' Rolle said. "More importantly, he's a fiery guy, and that's something we can use on the offensive side of the ball, a guy with some intensity . . . He's a guy I would love to be a teammate with, and I think we could do some great things together.''
I think we need more of that on defense as well.
Great season, great Giant. One of the only guys on the team that plays w any fire (also Cruz, Jake, Beason).
sounds crazy, but a lot of the Finley drops are lasers from Rodgers from what Ive seen going by memory. Sometimes its okay to put some air on some passes when you're targeting a TE. They're not receivers. They need time to adjust their body in position for the ball. Sometimes Rodgers lightning release and killer arm can be too amazing for his own good.
The drops when hes wide open is unacceptable obviously
fuck, they are his best plays actually, is when he goes up and gets those jump balls. he keeps his body so balanced in the air and makes heavily contested catches. it just wows you. Hes a special talent in that area. Throw some balls with some beautiful touch and he'll go up and get it. Eli's tremendous at that, although at times he did leave Kevin Boss exposed to bad hits because he was late and high over the middle
should convince the Giants FO that we need a younger, healthier and faster team.
players please. They only get more brittle once they get a new contract like Canty etc. Use our precious $$$ on known quantities like joseph.
Yeah he had the occassional drop, but his impact plays outweighed the drops. As long as he checks out medically and he came at a bargain, I'd cosign this move. Trel is right, we do need more fire and playmakers on that side of the ball.
Stick to playing DB Antrelle, leave the recruiting to someone else.
but way too injury prone for my taste. If anyone would know if Finley is worth the risk, it's our new coordinator, so it will be interesting if we show any interest. I will say that as far as talent goes, I like Finley a lot.
Its not the first time he's been cited as recruiting for the Giants, I haven't heard much of that since Antonio Pierce. Whether Finely is a good fit for us is a different topic,
but keep it up Rolle!
see jernigan, Brown, Wilson, Prince, Robinson, Nicks, Hosley, Thomas all young players that had injury issues.
Everyone freaked out when they heard Beason was coming, but now he's indispensable.
I don't know how many "spinal injuries" we want to have on this roster, but at least Finley knows what a TE is supposed to do.
Our bumbling crew of tight ends make a few key mistakes every single game.
was having a pretty good year before the injury. The type of year that would have gotten him a sizable contract.
not sure this should be made public - am I the only person worried about tampering charges? Maybe I have his status wrong, but he isn't a free agent yet, is he? Did free agency begin yet?
I thought we were in that window where teams have exclusive negotiations with their upcoming free agents.
Like that Antrel is recruiting, would prefer this kind of stuff not get news coverage right now.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, which I easily could be.
I believe coaches and front office personnel can.
This seems to indicate that Rolle himself expects to be back with the Giants, which is a matter of some dispute here given Rolle’s contract.
he is under contract for another year and is assuming that both he and the Giants will honor that contract. He probably knows that the Giants would be idiots to let him go.

Only a matter of dispute to those who don't understand Rolle's value to this football team.
to lower his cap hit too. I'd give him a two year extension. I know he's on the wrong side of 30, but there's been plenty of safeties that have played into their mid 30's effectively (ie. Ed Reed). I think he can play well for a few more years. He's in good shape, a leader and is a major factor in our secondary.
As far as Finley, he could be a solid consideration if cleared by our doctors. He was a force in the WCO passing game and could be here too. Could possibly get him on a 1-2 year reasonable deal, given his injury history.
which would mean he's signed for 4 more years, but they can easily pay him good money, lower his cap and leave themselves in a position to save significant money on the cap in the last year of his deal if he's still not worth it.
I suppose one would have to prove that Rolle was acting as an agent for the team somehow, which even though he served as a captain, isn't ever going to happen.
This is good too, because I think players should be able to have these kinds of conversations without such concern.
My concern is relieved.
with serious injury questions when that's what this team has been facing for past few seasons with players. Durability should be, imo, the utmost consideration taken in a player. Especially the situations the giants have gone through.
I don't think it really makes sense for a team that seems to battle the injury bug annually.
they are friends - were watching the SB together, and Rolle was working him over informally. That's it. There's nothing here that indicates the Giants are actually interested in him, and no reason to assume the Giants are continuing to pursue injured players.
supremely talented that are worth the risk if you can get them at a bargain. Who better to know this than our new OC.
