1 of the top FAs -- #Giants DT Jonathan Hankins -- has tried for weeks to beat NYG's standing offer. Hasn't done it yet. They want an answer
Wonder if it's a 1 year deal so he can reset his market  
Saos1n : 3/20/2017 8:55 am : link
Or long term?
SOUNDS Multi year

giants can't sit on there hands, they have given Hankins plenty of time to test the market. Either accept ours or the offer will get pulled.

with the JPP tag included. It likely means we prioritized JPP + Hank instead of making a push for Whitworth (which I agree with).

Definitely agree that was the right approach.

The alternative plan is Thomas and a draft pick in all likelihood.

I don't believe so... it seems as if he is holding out hope for a deal that would've been offered by now if it was going to... now he's wading around knowing the Giants offer is still there for the taking...

They may be at the point where they leak they are contemplating pulling the offer but instead, 'they want an answer'

Not as big of an asshole move

Over the weekend, we heard that the Giants have a “50-50” chance of keeping the defensive tackle. The Giants’ exact offer to the 25-year-old is not known, but Ralph Vacchiano of SNY says they’re unlikely to offer him anything more than a one-year, $4MM deal because of their cap situation. That would be a crushing blow to Hankins who came into March looking for a deal worth more than $10MM per year. After Dontari Poe settled for a one-year deal with an $8MM base, a lucrative multi-year deal seems unlikely for Hankins, even though he’s younger

pride is probably the last roadblock in accepting a deal. I'm sure he scoffed at their offer, "shopped around", and is slowly realizing his ridiculous demands will not be met

wait it out or return with your tail between your legs? I like Hankins, would be thrilled if he's back, but he really overrated his value and the market seems to agree.

hopefully it's a multi year deal with performance incentives, but a 1 year prove it deal would suffice.
Hope we get him on the cheap!

Thanks for the information Brandon. Great job. That is a very fair offer, especially considering that no one is offering him anywhere close to that amount.

Shit or get off the pot, we gave you the opportunity to shop our deal, but we can't wait forever.

I just wonder whether there's a fallback plan in FA, whether it's Bromley and co. taking a bigger role, or they hope to draft a DT high.

$7M per year, if correct, is a strong offer  
PatersonPlank : 3/20/2017 11:02 am : link
I agree with keeping the D intact. We spent a lot of money creating a top D, the team will not be stronger by letting it break down. If our offer has really been out there for a few weeks, then I think the Giants have a right to get an answer. No employer wants to give an offer and then wait for weeks while the employee tries to beat it, either he wants to be here or not.

Hankins is every bit the player Cofield and Joseph were here. IF he isn't it's too close to discern any real difference. Will JO never had 7 sacks here in a season with NYG. Neither did Cofield.

All three are/were solid DTs. Not great but plus players. Will Jo peaked with Minny but he's still pretty close to what he was here.

but he just doesn't fit our needs.. At his current weight and athleticism.. he provides no pass rush.. However for other teams specifically in the NFC East they should be all over this guy.. He can help them neutralize the Cowgirls running game.. Calais Campbell is the type of of DT that we need.. Obviously we were never going to be able to afford him but we need a pressure up the middle while still providing above average run defense..

I wasn't just speaking in terms of sacks, They all seemed to push the middle alittle more, or perhaps that it just seemed that way because of our DEs. I get what you are saying and perhaps I'm being too nostalgic or something. I was refering to Linval JO, I'm assuming you were as well since Will went to the Radiers.

This draft is littered with them! This likely being dRC's last season in blue, we could really use another cost controlled corner to pair with Apple and Jenkins big contract. I would expect a us to attack the strength of the draft and take CB in the first 3 rounds, along with DL help

Hankins is a NT. Jospeh can play both. The. Other two were 3tech guys. Also even though half the people here still don't get it 7 million per year tells me nothing. How long and how much is guanranteed? 5 years at 7 million w 20 guaranteed is a lot different than 5 years and 7 million at 12 guaranteed.

It's why some morons here never understood that Beatty's deal sucked because his 19 million guarantee hurt the cap implications and. His okay and health dipped.

We need to know more.

Beatty's deal paid him in a way that made him roughly the 12th overall OLT by salary. Considering he was a middle of the pack type guy, that made him slightly overpaid.

The problem wasn't so much paying Beatty, it was the lack of alternatives. The FA market for OLTs has been a bust for some time now, and that's party because a lot of the recently (past 4-5 years) drafted OLTs haven't been much to write home about.
Prediction  
area junc : 3/20/2017 11:57 am : link
5 years, $35M, $12.5M guaranteed.

Pretty much the standard "good player" contract we've given out over the years.

Hank has to realize, he is a part time player and thats a good offer for what we are asking of him.
Should have gone after Poe  
ghost718 : 3/20/2017 11:58 am : link
If this is what the Giants want inside,A Moose and a Buffalo.

Rather than put up with this
Poe and Hankins are the same type of player.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/20/2017 12:07 pm : link
They are run stuffing nose tackles that don't rush much. Except Poe is slightly older, and has back injury concerns along with the Falcons putting a 500k "get your weight under control" clause in his contract. No real difference between them. Both are even two years removed from very good seasons.
Poe is more talented than Hankins

Suburbanites : 3/20/2017 12:17 pm : link
But they already have 3 huge contracts on the defensive line. Even with an increased cap you have to spread the money around. They spent a 3rd round pick on Bromley who's only 24 but is heading into his fourth season. He seems to be more of that 3 technique pass rushing DT that fits better. Obviously they'd need to draft someone else too but they can do that later in the draft. I get the sense the Giants want to move in a different direction here and have been low balling him. The problem is in spite of being a pretty good player a market still hasn't emerged for Hankins.

Unfortunately for Hankins, the offers didn't come in. Giants sensing this put a standing 1 or 2 year deal on the table. This cements what I posted yesterday. I guess the front office isn't willing to be held hostage by a decent player who regressed a little from his best year.

But the Linval Joseph who hit free agency several years ago was not a better player than Hankins is at the moment.

People really let the last two seasons color their view of the player Joseph was during his years with the Giants and even his first season in Minnesota, when he was considered to be a disappointment.
Hankins wouldn't be the first guy to misjudge the market...  
Klaatu : 3/20/2017 1:00 pm : link
Or overestimate his own worth.

He's a good player. I liked him prior to the draft and I like him now, but he's not exactly a "difference-maker" so he shouldn't expect to get paid like one.

It's easy for me to say it, but I think he should accept the Giants' offer and take it from there. He's still young enough to get another substantial payday if he can prove he's worth it.
Can't help but think this and the rumor about Odrick  
Capital Rs : 3/20/2017 1:03 pm : link
...are related to let Hamkins know Giants are getting ready to move-on even if they don't have other appointments set up - yet. Same reporter being leaked a rumor surrounding Giants d-like interests. Also wouldn't surprise me if Hank signs in the next 24-48 hours.
#! Deterrent to Division Champ is Dallas  
GMen23 : 3/20/2017 1:06 pm : link
Nothing profound in that statement. But he and Snacks tamed the Cowboy running game and neutralized that vaunted OL.

I have seen nothing impressive in Bromley in 3 years. Thomas? We made him our first Sept waiver pick up. PUPed him, I think. And saw nothing that stood out from him all year.

There isn't an equally talented offensive linemen or LB to spend the money on, other wise maybe I would. But Hank back at $6-7 million I'm fine with.
Cap  
jayg5 : 3/20/2017 1:08 pm : link
Good point and I agree. Same situation of Donald Penn setting up visit last year with Giants, then re-signing with Raiders before visit could happen. I too, feel Hankins will be signed rather shortly.

The Giants and AP agent have kept in contact during the FA period. How close they are in $$ and years is the issue in what will likely be AP's last contract.

Based on what? Your close personal relationship with Eli?

Get back to me when any Manning ever leaves a dollar on the table.

overrating Hankins...


Who is overrating him? He's a good DT. Maybe even a very good DT. Just because many here want the Giants to keep Hankins doesn't mean we think he's a special player. He's a good player and he's in his prime. I'd love to see him return at a reasonable rate. Good DTs are NOT from the dime a dozen variety no matter wtf anyone here insists on saying. Good players are hard to find.

If they lose Hank it shouldn't devastate anyone here but we are better off keeping him unless we stumble into a good DT from day one in the mid rounds of this draft. Good luck with that.

was much better than Hankins when he left...that's why he got the deal that he got and Hankins is still waiting.


That's a leap. It could just be that when Jo hit FA there was a team out there that had a lot of money and a big need for a good young DT. Based on all the metrics Jo was not much better than HAnkins at this same point in time. Maybe a little better. Maybe. Willy JO just happened to have a suitor. HE was also a guy that had a super bowl ring. That never hurts.

yeah, that would have been crazy.
Hankins is a nice player, yes...

But a lot of his success is attributed to the fact that he is surrounded by good-great players.

Which would appear to be the opinion of the NFL GMs considering no one has budged on his $10M demands and his market appears to be drying up completely.

Agreed.

Shit or get off the pot

And this is not for public consumption. This is the Giants saying we've been patient. You're done shopping our offer. If a mega offer was out there you'd have it by now. It's time we continue to build our roster. We want you here so make your decision or we're moving on to X,Y, Z players.
if it wasn't for public consumption the team would not have given this statement to a favored reporter. The GM picks up the phone and calls the agent. You are being told exactly what the team wants you to be told.

opposite: his LACK OF success while being surrounded by 3 All Pros on the DLine. He should've made more noise.

Look at what Malik Jackson did on that DEN DL with Ware, Von Miller and Derek Wolfe? Hankins should've been more disruptive because he was 1on1 the whole year. He really didn't do anything besides hold the line, and you don't pay big $$$ for that.

If the Giants are offering $7M per year and he isn't taking it, he's an idiot or he's getting really bad advice from his agent.

Based on the fact that Eli said he never said it. You don't remember this?

The Giants aren't interested in fan appeasement. It's a message to ...Hankins...not us.

You're overthinking it. Which is probably not something you're accused of very often.
I Dont blame

them for wanting an answer. I wouldn't have gave him this long. If he doesn't take the offer by tomorrow I'd bring in Odrick, Tyson Jackson, and Tyson Alualu for visits.

I have always been a fan of Alualu. He would be a solid stopgap if Hankins moved on.
I am sure that Hankins and his agent know about this

Interesting. Was told DT Bennie Logan had a very sizable extension offer on table from #Eagles during the season and turned it down. Whoops.
