....already surfaceing that free agents THIS year have passed on signing with the Giants......wonder why?
Maybe they don't like MetLife Stadium?

Tell us more!

free agents EVERY year choose not to sign with the Giants.
Not sure why?

realize we are in rebuilding mode. I also donít think DG hands out tons of cash to certain positions.
If true, its because we are clearly rebuilding and no young QB  
SGMen : 3/14/2019 3:11 pm : link
But the NY area offers a lot for some big names. Just we aren't going after big names this year. Which is good.
They heard Rosen was gonna be our QB.

who are you so devastated about that passed?

Where are we going this year that we need these supposed players?
Where are these rumors?

OMG. This team was bad. It got a little better last year. They are blowing it up to stop treading water. You had faith in the guys who drafted Flowers and Apple?

We made the playoffs what - 1 time since we won the super bowl?

Let's drop the hysteria. BTW what did Gruden do last year with the Raiders? Wasn't Khalil Mack traded? Amari Cooper? Didn't he eat some dead space to have money to make a run this year?

Build through the draft. Stop pretending they can be a contender now.
Isn't it obvious?

Money talks...

but when everyone has money it would be surprising if this dysfunction wasn't a factor.
RE: Not sure why?  
VinegarPeppers : 3/14/2019 3:31 pm : link
That's absurd. Odell was loved in the lockerroom. Ownership and too many fans want a tat-free, normal hair guy who hands the ball to the ref. That means nothing.

over Reese, Ross etc. Reese sat and did nothing to improve the OL for example, telling us things would be fine with Flowers and Hart. Gettleman has been bold,and even during the season, was looking for ways to upgrade the roster. Gettleman has been trying to clean up the mess left behind of underachievers, and those with locker room issues. Need to be patient and let Gettleman do his job.

These guys care about anything other then money you're naive. I've met/talked to 1000s of players. Most don't give a single fuck about the team they play for as long as the money is there.

Not likely taxes - if money is equal, it is the chance for playoffs/super bowl/
Any surprise the usual suspects are yukking it up?

You can tell who gives a flying shit about whether the team ever wins another game or not.

It is really frustrating to watch this unfold. I thought when the news broke that the only upside was this ownership and overall strategy might get the heat that it deserved. Nope some people are leaning in harder to this because we have a no nonsense GM. No nonsense shouldn't be one of the best things you say about a GM. It's fucking nonsense.
When the Giants  
Matt in SGS : 3/14/2019 4:29 pm : link
are trending towards $100M under the cap next year, and Gettleman is still the GM, let's see how much players avoid the Giants.

The Giants have very little room to work with, of course guys are not banging down the door to come here.

Coughlin had an "asshole tax" too.

This is a business. The players only care about how much money they are getting (as they should).
There are 32 teams in the NFL.
