Should we spend our money on LBs now?

dep026 : 3/13/2018 10:49 am
If we do not get Solder, there are a lot of interesting LBs out there.

Preston Brown
Nigel Bradham
Navarro Bowman
Avery Williamson

Some interesting names there.
We spent big on a WILL

I'd be surprised if they spent big on a SAM, that typically doesn't happen. Question is will they spend on a MIKE to compete with Goodson.
We got our LB upgrade  
BillT : 3/13/2018 10:53 am : link
I don't see another big money player there. They need an adequate 2-down SAM and some backups/role players.
I would welcome Kennard  
Capt. Don : 3/13/2018 10:57 am : link
I think he and Cockrell would be two good under the radar signings. You cant have pro bowlers everywhere.
I think Kennard on a fair contract would be good  
Rjanyg : 3/13/2018 11:03 am : link
I'd like to see Lorenzo Carter in round 3 or Vader Esch in round 2. These guys can play.
I think the Giants should be

Looking for a CB, WR and OT. Hope they can get Solder st s reasonable price. Is Robinson still in play?
They spent big on LB already.

I think that Carter would be a great pick at the top of Rd. 3.
Well, if we really are converting to 3-4, it's definitely a position

of need. I haven't followed the FA candidates as closely though.

Spend the money where the best players are, end of story. We have a lot of holes to fill.
I actually think Solder  
section125 : 3/13/2018 11:20 am : link
was more of a target than Norwell.

But re-ign Kennard and pick up one other quick LB. I liked Cockrell and if he fits the expected system, re-sign him.
Ditto solder

Makes sense given guards in draft perhaps.
Dragon : 3/13/2018 11:31 am : link
Your money and run home these teams a throwing away money like true billionaires. Use the draft gentlemen FA is for fools looking for a pot of gold.
If this team could draft linebackers  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/13/2018 11:34 am : link
or at least did it once in the past decade.
I don't think we're moving to a base 3-4  
JonC : 3/13/2018 11:37 am : link
and Ogletree is best suited to 4-3 WILL, imv. We'll see 3-4 looks but the back seven they're looking for speed among the upgrades.
Loss? of Norwell  
old man : 3/13/2018 11:41 am : link
and Richburg, in its way, means OL or 2 in FA first.
I'd be surprised if we didn't sign someone else at LB  
Giantology : 3/13/2018 11:45 am : link
With Kennard going to Detroit now. Unless we plan on starting Herzlich...
less linebackers  
Giantsfan79 : 3/13/2018 11:54 am : link
more safeties. the giants should ditch the 4-3 or 3-4 to play more nickle and dime defenses.

Brilliant. Hey, let's roll out the 11 Defense and put 11 safeties on the field.
Well, there is no way  
Doomster : 3/13/2018 3:49 pm : link
We go to a 3-4 defense with the one linebacker we have, in Ogletree....Goodson has played one good game in his NFL career....that's it folks...

If a few more of the good FA's get snatched up by other teams, this might change what direction, this team was planning to go.....

To be good, we may have to be bad for awhile...
I'd sign up from Avery Williamson  
adamg : 3/13/2018 3:51 pm : link
and a handful of smaller OL acquisitions.
Thank God Kennard is gone  
GeorgeAdams33 : 3/13/2018 5:46 pm : link
I didn't want to see us overpay to keep him around. After we signed Herzlich back I wanted to break something. I have grown to despise all of the guys who we keep around for absolutely no reason other than to insure that we suck. Kennard is a very average player with decent intelligence but no instincts for the game. As an athlete he is stiff and mechanical. He is someone we can replace easily. He really only made a handful of plays in his time here. Time to move on. I would like to sign Jersey City native, LB-Tahir Whitehead. This guy is a lot like Ogletree, if we want more guys like Ogletree.

My money is in a diversified investment portfolio.
Avery Williamson

IS the way to go.

No way would I be looking at Soldier instead of Wiiliamson. The Giants defense of tackling was lousy. The linebackers were God-awful. Wiilliamson is a tackling machine - he is young and he can play both ways.

The Giants should be looking at Hubbard for the OLine because he won't be incredibly expensive, and look to get some other quality there-- and get this Linebacker who will all but solidify the from 7 of the defense.

So much discussion about the O-line but the LB position was beyond pathetic too. The D-Line needs support.
