| The Giants are keeping their info in house - which I'm happy about.
It's pretty clear they're not letting anything leak and all of these guys are just taking stabs at the wind.
I'm not so sure about that.
Right now, it seems like they might be purposefully leaking their interest to someone who they cannot even off-the-record directly offer the position to, and who it looks like might be highly desired elsewhere.
Think about it like this. If the Giants really want Patricia and they see the media reports saying that DET wants him and it's basically a done deal, how else are they supposed to get word to him of their interest? If they contact his agent directly they risk trouble, particularly depending on who his agent is and who else the agent is representing. So leak their interest to the media.
Just a complete guess on my part, but I truly believe the NYG front office knows how to strategically leak info they want out there and I'm hoping that's what this is all about.
