Looking at Cap Space  
jvm52106 : 3/12/2018 11:11 am : link
the Eagles are over this year and have very little space available for 2019 (as of now). They have to make some changes to be able to get guys signed etc. Yet, they are making trades and making moves.

This Cap Space issue we speak of for the Giants is more a worry to fans than it is to management and ownership. They have ways to make things work and I suspect we will see some of those ways shortly if we have a few guys we are targeting.
I know you can talk to players

But because you canít sign them until Wednesday afternoon, you donít really know you have picked someone up, right?

How do you know this? None of us have a clue if the Giants have little to no interest in retaining them. Besides that, wasnít there an article posted the other day that Richburg has received a ton of interest from other teams?

Iím not debating the disaster that is the OL, just saying that itís a bit disingenuous to say that these guys are so bad that no one wants them.



I didn't say nobody wants them Shock. Only commented we spent the draft capital, growing/non-growing pains with both, only likely to be left holding the bag on replacing them soon.

I don't know if the Giants are interested, but if they are, they better speak up...

Gotcha. Personally I hope we move on from both but i wouldnít be surprised to see one of them back, if only because aside from a few guys that teams will be competing against each other for, there isnít a great crop to replace them this year.

If players verbally agree and then back off theyíll burn bridges. Youíll see some deals announced during this period for sure, and theyíre basically done

yes, lets see how much we could possibly invest in an under performing D-line.

"reasonable" price for Suh would eat almost all current cap space, lets be real.

I heard Philly had something like 21 of 22 starters from the SB roster signed to contracts.

Broncos' fans dreaming of Brees  
shyster : 3/12/2018 12:40 pm : link
Nobody really (really) thinks Brees is leaving NO.

But, he has made it to the free agency period. And, as I gather, there's nothing stopping him from going somewhere else and sticking the Saints with $18M in dead cap. His contract has a "no tag" provision.

Until Saints sign him up, an interesting under-the-radar situation.

My sources tell me they are currently negotiating with Norwell but SF is on the other line on Norwell's phone waiting to put in their counter offer. Meanwhile, we're on hold right now with Webb's agent.
Slade with a pathetic attempt to get something right  
Jay on the Island : 3/12/2018 1:00 pm : link
It was reported days ago that the Giants had interest in Robinson now with the release of DRC they are clearly in the market for CB help. So Slade looks around for rumors then passes them off as his inside information or he looks at available players at an area of need.
Very different year with DG running the show.  
Beer Man : 3/12/2018 1:16 pm : link
Last year at this time we were receiving info from a number of AssHats (some good, some bad). This year its been crickets.
do you think Norwell feels any loyalty to DG  
CMicks3110 : 3/12/2018 1:17 pm : link

Is he? The only stories I've seen so far is that the Eagles are trying to resign him. They have some work to do to get under the cap first. I doubt he would choose the Giants over the Eagles, but nothing is in stone with the Eagles at this time.

They're not going to spend $20m on a guard just because they have $70m in space.
