ESPN/NYP: DRC is not moving to safety

Eric from BBI : Admin : 3/9/2018 8:54 am
Apparently no such decision has been made. NFL Network apparently got this one wrong (at least for now).
Get Bettcher....

....his Honey Badger back!
I still feel his is a possible Vet cut  
Rjanyg : 3/9/2018 9:08 am : link
and who knows maybe honey badger could be on his way?
Great  
Jon in NYC : 3/9/2018 9:09 am : link
That move never made sense to me. DRC is a more than capable corner. He also seems tailor made for the new defense as someone who can be left on an island.
Honestly, the idea was weird when it was reported.

It's more like a Madden idea

Wonder if the source was his agent, trying to fend off a cut.
His body style does  
jvm52106 : 3/9/2018 9:14 am : link
not lend itself well to safety (more angular and lean) and his tackling ability is average at best. I think the cap space is more needed here and DRC is let go. Especially if they truly are giving Apple a chance to redeem himself.

Shocker  
Big Blue Hokie : 3/9/2018 9:14 am : link
So surprised Ian Rapoport was wrong again. He is such a hack .
I dout it happens in NY if anywhere  
pjcas18 : 3/9/2018 9:16 am : link
but I think Richard Sherman would make a good safety.

good size, good ball skills, and good tackler. not sure how his coverage is anymore with the injruies (like I said in the Sherman thread), but with his injuries maybe safety is a better fit than CB and that may remove the Patriots (where he's rumored to end up) from the running.

Collins Sherman Jenkins DRC and Apple (or Apple replacement) is a good secondary.
Yep.

DRC in 2016  
GoBlue6599 : 3/9/2018 9:44 am : link
DRC in 2016 had one of the best seasons I've ever seen from a Giants CB.. lockdown coverage and a bunch of athletic INTs
If he is cut ( which I hope he isn't )he will be remembered fondly
Weird

CB is the #2 biggest need after OL

Agree. I think DRC has been terrific on the defense since he got here. And I think heís more physical than he gets credit for, especially as a DB. I have no idea wtf was wrong with the defense last year, especially the defensive backfield, but itís hard for me to imagine DRC was the source of all the problems. He isnít overly expensive for his position and who the heck knows about Apple. Iíd like to see him stay.
I still think he stays  
LakeGeorgeGiant : 3/9/2018 10:58 am : link
given the question marks surrounding Apple.
There are other players that could be cut with benefit to the cap  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/9/2018 11:10 am : link
that I would make that move on before DRC.
Not moving him  
old man : 3/9/2018 11:34 am : link
to S makes sense, given his aversion to tackling.
Sherman & Badger would be too expensive to add, unless one or more of under performers is restructured, or traded/cut(unlikely).
Misinformation and misdirection  
RomanWH : 3/9/2018 12:04 pm : link
Could mean there's still a chance for the trade down and draft Fitzpatrick scenario especially if Barkley goes #1.
Every year  
NJGiantFan84 : 3/9/2018 12:15 pm : link
fans seem to call for DRC to be cut for Cap space. But who are you replacing him with? Apple was brutal last year and cant be relied on, clean slate or not. You aren't finding a player of his caliber for any cheaper. And he only has 1 more year on his deal. Id be really surprised if they cut him.
They are negotiating  
GeoMan999 : 3/9/2018 12:42 pm : link
May mean that they are in the midst of negotiations. Something like Giants want to extend by a year and lower the annual amount. Guarantees are key. How much would DRC gett on the open market?

I would like to keep him for two years.
Like everything about this player  
TMS : 3/9/2018 12:51 pm : link
Hope he stays and think DG will make it happen.
