C Lions are letting him test free agency 4 year starter ..... young and good.
Please  
Nine-Tails : 1/20/2020 8:57 pm : link
However there's so many needs. Center, right tackle, pass rusher, linebackers, free safety, and corner. We can't fill all of them.

Why not? We have two premium picks and 80 mil in cap space
If this guy is a good young center  
ryanmkeane : 1/20/2020 9:00 pm : link
wouldnít they want to lock him up? Could be salary cap reasons but it seems odd they wouldnít want him back. Maybe they are just letting him test and then see if they want to match/ go above any good offers he gets ...

have Frank Ragnow at C who they took in the first two years ago. Glasgow is really a G who they tried at C and upgraded then and slid Glasgow to G and backup at C.

Cool name  
BigBluesman : 1/20/2020 9:08 pm : link
Why not? Has to be better than Halapio.
Yeah but gettleman thinks halapio is good and the giants are set  
Giantfan21 : 1/20/2020 9:17 pm : link
at C with him
He's only played Center in 2018 so one year...  
JCin332 : 1/20/2020 9:20 pm : link
before that he was a Guard...
Drafting his little brother might be a good idea too.  
Big Blue Blogger : 1/20/2020 9:29 pm : link
Jordan, that is, then they can add Ryan if he hits the market in 2021.
Iím of the camp for the following  
Saos1n : 1/20/2020 9:31 pm : link
Move Zeitler to Center
Insert Adam Gates in at RG
Sign Jack Conklin
Retain Solder
Draft OT in first 2 rounds to groom

2020 OLine
Solder - Hernandez - Zeitler - Gates - Conklin

With the rookie as swing tackle, ready to hopefully take over for Solder in 2021
I Gettleman actually thinks Pio Pio is any good then we're fucked  
Optimus-NY : 1/20/2020 9:43 pm : link
What a waste of a roster spot.
Has anybody heard an update on Big George?  
Rjanyg : 1/20/2020 10:04 pm : link
If healthy you would hope he would get a chance to stick at RT.
didnít Halapio tear his Achilles in the last game? If so I would think  
plato : 1/20/2020 10:12 pm : link
heís done with the Giants. Although I didnít hear whether he was operated on or where he is. Achilles rupture is a big injury if Pio in fact has that and then the Giants need a center, regardless of what they think of his skills.

He did. Already had surgery. DG said in a presser that time timeline has him back for training camp. He also said he was comfortable with the inside 3. Pio being part of that, which is where the concern is coming from.

Could be GM speak, as to not tip his hand going into FA and the draft.
One potential option to consider  
Jay on the Island : 1/20/2020 10:17 pm : link
27 year old Patriots guard Joe Thuney for center. Thuney has played just guard for the Patriots but he is very smart. Thuney played center in college although he spent most of his time at tackle and guard.

Heís a very solid guard so he wonít be cheap but he could be a big upgrade for the Giants at center. Obviously Judge is familiar with him.
I keep telling you guys  
allstarjim : 1/20/2020 10:35 pm : link
Pio tore his Achilles. It is very unlikely he will not be ready to play when the season starts and even if he somehow is, you can't just plan on that, so they have to plan on someone else starting. Achilles ruptures can take up to a year to return to athletic competition.

And finally, Jon Halapio is a restricted free agent. He doesn't even have a contract to play with anybody in 2020.

Should say it is VERY LIKELY  
allstarjim : 1/20/2020 10:37 pm : link
He will not be ready to play for week one.

Gettleman is giving an overly optimistic timeline for the recovery.
I have a simple solution  
Tuckrule : 1/21/2020 5:31 am : link
Sign Conklin if we are priced out resign remmers who was serviceable. draft a center. A different offense and different play caller can make this line look a lot better. Moving from the zone blocking scheme can help a guy like Hernandez thrive. For center I like Dave Tes guy, Hennessy, from temple later in the draft Round 4 or so

Solder
Hernandez
Draft pick
Zeitler
Conklin

Right. We can't fix all of them but we can fix the OL if we prioritize it. This would be a good start.

Didn't the Pats OL suck this season? Or do I have that wrong? Plus anyone from their OL that is coming over and not bringing the OL coach with them worries me.
