free agent review

Nice review of players available for free agency
free agent - ( New Window )
Good Review

It is. Thanks!
Hmmm

Interesting take on a few items. RB seems to be in play and though Darkwa to me is a waste of time there is a growing contingent that wants him back. I would love Burkhead on the team as a jack of all trades.
DJ Fluker

was not in the top 10 of interior linemen. That makes sense, but is also possibly in contrast to the reports that there is "significant" interest in him. Though perhaps that is interest based on the fact that he should come at a reasonable price given the inconsistent performance to date.
Would a Barkley/Bridgewater compromise

satisfy all the draft arguers?
I think

the Giants will lose a bidding war for Norwell while losing Pugh. They will go into the next tier of guards, which shouldn’t be a bad thing because Gettleman is a wizard at identifying talent .

Don’t think it would satisfy anyone who’s heart is set on drafting a QB at 2...but it’s an interesting question.

I've thought of this too but can they afford Bridgewater?
that is a good review

Chris Hubbard sounds like a Dave Gettelman type of hiring -- wonder why Pittsburgh would let him go

I have been pushing for Hubbard and Sullivan. Pittsburgh is close to the cap and they need to extend Bell so they won't be able to afford Hubbard.

For a reasonable price he would be a good piece. But the guy is made of glass. Time to steer clear of that unless for a cheap deal
I want no part of Bridgewater  
Jay on the Island : 3/7/2018 10:47 am : link
Sorry but I have never understood the love affair with Bridgewater. I have always thought that he was a more athletic Jason Campbell. If the Giants did pass on a QB and Bridgewater was willing to sign a 1 year deal for 2-3 million then that would be fine but he won't settle for that.

I see

Hubbard and Sullivan would be two outstanding pickups -- add Hernandez, Bradon or even Nelson and the Giants line is a different animule

I agree I was hoping for Hubbard, Sullivan, and Zach Fulton in free agency and then Braden Smith, Isaiah Wynn, or Will Hernandez in round 2 plus Brian O'Neill/Desmond Harrison in round 3 or Wyatt Heller/Alex Cappa in round 4.

Hubbard looks interesting, an upgrade at ORT that might not break the bank

BBI seems to have a lower opinion of Richburg and Pugh, particularly Pugh, than just about any other source out there.

Hubbard has also started at guard for the Steelers. I don't know why I have just had a gut feeling that Hubbard will be a Giant. He just seems to fit Gettleman's MO.
Can Sullivan play guard?

Just in case Jones won out a battle for center.
Seems to me

that if the Giants can sign Hubbard AND Sullivan, that would be more helpful than Norwell.
