good signing, even if it just keeps him from cheap shotting DJ!

No, I tease, good ILB.
Love Okereke

Stanford smart & tough MF. My prediction is he will call the defense, and mckinney will be backup with green dot.

I was beside myself that he was still playing in that colts game until the final whistle and the game was over in the early 3rd quarter. He's a gamer.

A bit disappointed by the signing. However, he has been pretty successful so far and 250 lb LBs aren’t common any more.

Didn’t LT play at 240?
Let this be an example for everyone to remember...

when we discuss free agents. Especially when we talk about guys who we did not sign in the past.

Nobody wanted to come to this clown show of an organization. Players in the league talk. The word was out how fucked up we were.

Now, we are getting the benefit of the good vibes out there.

LOL Just stop! Blake Martinez? Leonard Williams ring a bell? Logan Ryan maybe? James Bradberry???
I loved this signing

I wanted him in the draft and I am thrilled that this team finally has a legit ILB again. He is going to thrive in this defense.

Thank you. It does get Frustrating when narratives are shared without regard to facts

Okereke-from all I've seen since we drafted him-seems like a good dude, but I think we offered the most coin & thus the reason he's a Giant.

Who knows if we *had* to overpay them. Maybe it was just ineptitude. Unless I'm just making shit up I'm pretty sure Gettleman was the only horse in the Kenny Golladay race, yet look how that turned out.

So proven wrong, you change your strategy to another reason you have no proof about.

Everywhere I looked had Taylor's weight listed as 237, which just doesn't seem right. I remember Joe Bugel talking about the Giants LB's "in the 250 pound range," or words to that effect.

Harry Carson is also listed at 237, Banks at 235. There's another site that lists LT at 242.
