LB Devon Kennard signing with Lions. Versatile OLB is the right fit in Matt Patricia's defense.
Well that was fast...  
section125 : 3/13/2018 11:40 am : link
guess Gettleman wasn't interested.
Bummer.  
BigBlueHens : 3/13/2018 11:40 am : link
I was hoping we could get him back.
Darnit  
Joey in VA : 3/13/2018 11:40 am : link
He was one I was hoping we'd keep.
Right when the Giants move to scheme that probably  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/13/2018 11:41 am : link
fits him best.

That sucks.
Damn  
JoeyBigBlue : 3/13/2018 11:41 am : link
I guess the writing on the wall with the Ogletree trade.
Great  
Dragon : 3/13/2018 11:41 am : link
Another one gone we are blessed gents.
Was hoping to keep him  
Mike in NY : 3/13/2018 11:42 am : link
But 3 years/$18.75M was a bit higher than I would have felt comfortable paying him
Ogletree plays weakside  
JonC : 3/13/2018 11:42 am : link
NYG looking to get faster in the back seven.
Liked him  
Aaroninma : 3/13/2018 11:43 am : link
but not worth that money
meh. JAG when he's healthy  
Victor in CT : 3/13/2018 11:43 am : link

Hope its big $$ and we get a 4th comp pick.
OK

Player thatís injury prone, too much money for that

$6m+/year for Kennard! That's a lot more than I thought he'd get.

Bradham?
You guys are so screwed up with not worth the money crap  
Carl in CT : 3/13/2018 11:45 am : link
The CAP is up and so are salaries. Itís all relative but some of you just donít understand. Simple economics.
That is insane money  
Eric on Li : 3/13/2018 11:45 am : link

Tahir Whitehead is another option. A notch below Bradham but more cap friendly.

When I see Hitchens getting $9M and Kennard is not even 2/3 of the player that Hitchens is, Kennard is being overpaid unless the signing bonus is low such that it is really a 2 year deal if he doesn't perform as expected
i liked kennard  
djm : 3/13/2018 11:47 am : link
figures the only LB we draft worth a shit leaves. I guess it's a fit thing.
Kennard is another one who can't stay healthy  
gidiefor : Mod : 3/13/2018 11:48 am : link
unfortunately -- he rode more than half the season on the bench with injuries in each year he was on the Giants roster
DRC, Wing, Richburg, Kennard  
Sean : 3/13/2018 11:49 am : link
all gone. Pugh may be next.
6M  
ryanmkeane : 3/13/2018 11:49 am : link
per year??? Haha
And Hitchens got 9m/yr  
AcesUp : 3/13/2018 11:49 am : link
What's Bradham getting? 12? That's why I wasn't concerned with the Ogletree trade. We traded a comp 4th pick for a slightly discounted team friendly contract.
No big loss  
aimrocky : 3/13/2018 11:49 am : link
he's always hurt and hasn't been an impact player the last few years.

breaking up a 2-14 team? I have no issues with it. Long overdue actually. Purge the majority of the roster.
Another no great loss

I don't think they'll spend big on a SAM, especially when you see what Kennard just got from the Lions.
The more guys we lose the better our chances are of getting comp  
yatqb : 3/13/2018 11:53 am : link
picks next year. We are in for a relatively long rebuild, whether we plan on Webb being the QB of the future or someone at #2. Our roster sucks. At this point in the rebuild we don't need to spend big money on guys who won't be core players for us once we are ready to contend. Let all of those guys go, imo.

that doesn't mean you overpay to keep injury prone JAGs
No great loss IMO  
Marty866b : 3/13/2018 11:56 am : link
He has been injured since his junior year in high school when he tore his ACL. He was constantly injured at USC and with us. Not a bad player but nothing special and he does lack speed.
A JAG  
McNally's_Nuts : 3/13/2018 11:57 am : link
and that's a lot of money to pay for a guy who misses a lot of time.

I think a lot of Giants fans overrated this guy, he wasn't anything special.

Good for him for getting paid. Life changing money.
3 years, 18.75 mil  
Breeze_94 : 3/13/2018 11:59 am : link
That's gotta be worth a comp pick, no? Considering we almost got one for Sensabaugh last year and he signed for 2 years, 2.6mil.

So comp picks for Richburg, Kennard, possibly Pugh.
BYE !!!!  
blueblood : 3/13/2018 11:59 am : link

But when we sign players they will start cancelling out
So in the NFL now  
Knee of Theismann : 3/13/2018 11:59 am : link
If you can stay healthy for 3-4 years and be a starter on any team you will get paid at least $5M per year. Good deal.
I was hoping Kennard would return  
Rjanyg : 3/13/2018 12:00 pm : link
but I think we will be getting a LB in the draft to take his spot. Also looking for more pass rushers at OLB which he can do just doesn't have a quick first step.

He was solid though.
Lbs who can cover the pass  
ChicagoMarty : 3/13/2018 12:04 pm : link
should be the priority imo
Way too much money for Kennard  
Rick in Dallas : 3/13/2018 12:06 pm : link
Lions overpaid for average LB who had difficulty staying healthy during his Giant career.
...  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 3/13/2018 12:06 pm : link
2014 draft class looking worse by the minute.
Doesn't sound like that much for Kennard.....  
BillKo : 3/13/2018 12:07 pm : link
...relatively speaking.

But he's hurt too much for my liking.

another Reese milestone along with 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009. I didn't add 2015 yet, but it's going that way.

The last draft they had produce multiple useful players was 2008.

You look back and again have to wonder how in the fuck Reese survived after 2015.
He will get paid 6 million  
est1986 : 3/13/2018 12:16 pm : link
And do absolutely nothing. He does not make plays. A perennial 30 total tackles, 1 sack a season type of a guy.

At least 2014 had Beckham Jr.

You want bad? Try 2011 to 2013:

2013:
Justin Pugh
Johnathan Hankins
Damontre Moore
Ryan Nassib
Cooper Taylor
Eric Herman
Michael Cox

2012:

David Wilson
Rueben Randle
Jayron Hosley
Adrien Robinson
Brandon Mosley
Matt McCants
Markus Kuhn

2011:
Prince Amukamara
Marvin Austin
Jerrel Jernigan
James Brewer
Greg Jones
Tyler Sash
Jacquian Williams
Da'Rel Scott

I remember when Jayron  
McNally's_Nuts : 3/13/2018 12:18 pm : link
Hosley was "athletically arrogant."

Yup.
I liked him, but he couldn't  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 3/13/2018 12:25 pm : link
stay healthy. That's pretty important.
One of the more over rated Giants  
ZogZerg : 3/13/2018 12:25 pm : link
on this board. Never lived up to the expectations folks had on him.

Will be interesting to see how he does in detroit.
Mr Glass is gone  
NYG007 : 3/13/2018 12:31 pm : link
see ya. No concern. I did enjoy when he played, well, 50% of the time
