The Giants have tendered DT Robert Thomas, an exclusive rights free agent, according to a source. No surprise. Dave Gettleman once had him in Panthers camp (2016).
Thomas is another huge dude....

and can be that back up NT that we'll need to spell Snacks on occasion.
he's probably going to be the backup NT

assuming the 3-4 scheme.

Will Tomlinson play DE?
Good

I like Thomas
I was wondering why they had not done this  
Breeze_94 : 3/14/2018 11:08 am : link
need someone to backup Snacks at NT, and Thomas is capable of doing that. Plus, he is cheap thanks to the tender (I belive it is around 630k). Seemed like a no-brainer to me.
Solid smart move

Low cost insurance and depth for Snacks
Where the hell

do we have players for a 3-4 defense?

We have 2 linebackers, and one of them can't stay on the field.....
Meh jag

We can and should gift Harrison with a line mate that is AT Least his equal.... In skills AND in girth.

Snacks, arguably our best player past two years, most 'football player-ish'...

Strategy 101 says:

'' reinforce success. ''

Payne... Via...Settle. Lotulele...others.
Add one if those next to Harrison

And we instantly become a major pain to.play against.

Ugh. We have DEs who will be at OLB, that's how. Change your handle to dumbster.

That gave me a chuckle.
This defense has been terrible 2 out of the last 3 years.

If the change is going to be made, now is the time. Giants have been running the 4-3 since LT retired.
If not for Strahan, the zGiants probably would have played a 3-4

Base a long time ago.

Probably should have switched in 2008.

Martin? Seriously?

Ogletree, OK.....

Goodson? Can't cover anyone or stay on the field....

Herz? Stop it....

JPP and OV in coverage? Make it stop.....who are the DE's when these guys are linebackers?

Joey, do you even know what a 3-4 defense is?
Jesus, doomster..
