One Giants free agency note, per source: Long snapper Colin Holba -- who replaced injured Zak DeOssie during the season -- is not a free agent. He signed a 2-year contract in Nov. and will be a restricted free agent after the 2020 season. He did a nice job taking over.

Breer MMQB: Nick Saban Discusses Tua Tagovailoa’s Injury, Rehab and Special Makeup
Nick Saban says Tua Tagovailoa helped him get through the injury more than the coach helped his player. Plus, some free agents who will make more than you expect, Mike McCoy thinks Philip Rivers has more in him and a critical stretch for CBA negotiations
“This week, Leonard Williams pushed back on the notion that he’s asking for $15 million from the Giants. But maybe he shouldn’t? Given that the team forked over a third-round pick and a conditional fifth-rounder to get him, and his franchise tag number would be around $16 million (not happening), Williams has considerable leverage here.”

FieldYates - Jags traded their best player, haven't yet been able to resign arguably their second best player who is a free agent, don't appear to have a franchise QB on the roster, yet still are way over the cap & by far more $ committed than any other team?
That's so bad.

Salguero Miami Herald: Miami Dolphins’ current view of Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert might surprise you
“Firstly, the club’s view of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is not of a slam-dunk pick near the top the draft. At least not yet. The Dolphins will go through the process of vetting Tagovailoa at the Combine and beyond, as other teams will, before deciding if he??s worth the No. 5 overall selection, which Miami holds in the first round of the April draft.
Secondly, the club has an increasingly positive view of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert.”

Finlay NBC Sports Washington: Ron Rivera sees releasing Josh Norman as an opportunity for Redskins to get younger
“The big thing is it's an opportunity for us to get younger. Josh is a veteran guy and again, just looking at the young guys that we have, we got to get these guys on the football field and more exposed," Rivera said.
Rivera spoke to reporters at a charity event in Charlotte, and while everything he said is true, it's also not the full story. Yes, Norman just turned 32 in December, but Washington's decision to cut him was not solely about age.
Norman was set to make $15 million in 2020, and the team will save $12.5 million on the salary cap by letting him go. And his level of play no longer validated the hefty price tag and probably hasn't for the last two seasons. Norman finished the 2019 season on the bench and only played in rare situations when the other active cornerbacks were hurt.
As for a youth movement at cornerback, it's coming, ready or not. Quinton Dunbar is in the last year of his deal and will be 28 when the season starts. Fabian Moreau will be in the last year of his rookie deal and will be 26 when the season starts. Jimmy Moreland had an up and down rookie year in 2019 and will be 25 when the season starts this fall.
Some NFL sources also expect the Redskins to be quite active in free agency, particularly at the cornerback spot. Two names to watch are unrestricted free agents James Bradberry and Bashaud Breeland. Bradberry played for Rivera in Carolina while Breeland nearly signed with the Panthers as a free agent in 2018 before a foot injury voided his contract...”

“4. Giants Jedrick Wills OT, Alabama
It’s a sexy top of the first round in this mock draft, and Jedrick Wills may not feel like he fits that vibe — he does. Wills is a potential franchise-changer at the position, who brings elite athleticism, high-quality technique with powerful mitts and infectious energy for the game.
Obviously, two QBs in the top three is an ideal situation for the New York Giants, who have a ton of flexibility at their spot. We knew general manager Dave Gettleman is unlikely to entertain a trade down, so he’ll go after his highest-graded player — there’s a good shot that ends up being Wills.”
36. Giants Kenneth Murray LB, Oklahoma The Giants need a captain for their defense, and Gettlemen will like Murray's tone-setting hit strength in between the tackles. Can you keep him on the field for all three downs without blitzing him overtly?”

“Only a year ago Davey O'Brien was the toast of collogiate fandom, but with the weak Philadelphia Eagles his passing has been anything but professional this year . . . against the Giants Sunday he had aerials intercepted and was thrown for 25 yards on three other successive attempts to get the ball off to a receiver. . .The Giants uncovered a new passing threat from the southwest in Eddie Miller, 165-pounder from New Mexico State. He completed three out of six against the Eagles, one of them good for a touchdown.”

Cuff 60 yard receiving TD; 23 yard FG; XP
“The New York Giants scoring by all knowm methods, a touchdown, extra point, field goal and a safety, the New York Giants overpowered the Pittsburgh Steelers, 12 to 0, today in the Polo grounds to stay within striking distance of the eastern division leaders of the National Pro Football league. Little Eddie Miller, the aerial artist from New Mexico State, and the veteran Ward Cuff,
Marquette star, shared the glory.
Miller completed seven out of nine tossed passes for 117 yards including one for a 61-yard gain to Cuff for a touchdown in the first five minutes of the game. Cuff, besides scoring the only touchdown, place-kicked the extra point and in the second stanza booted a 3-yard field goal. The Giants got their other two points on the third play of the last chapter when the New York line swarmed through and blocked Boyd Brumbaugh's punt in the Pittsburgh end zone. Rocco Pirro of the Steelers recovered for a safety.”
