    Default New York Giants Talk

    Any diehard Big Blue fans out there?

    Looks like the G-Men might be trying to recruit Nnamdi Asomugha to shore up their secondary. That would be a HUGE acquisition if we could pull it off, having a shutdown corner like him on the squad would really help our pass rushers. Keeping Kiwanuka is key too, if we can somehow get both of those guys inked to a new deal our defense will be in great shape for next season (if there IS a next season). Neither of them will come cheap though. There's also Ahmad Bradshaw that we need to get signed. G-Men might have to make some tough decisions w/their roster this offseason.

    Though the NFL lockout prevents teams from talking to players, it won’t stop Justin Tuck from doing some recruiting. The Giants defensive end said Tuesday night he plans on talking to Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha about coming to New York.

    "New York City is the place to be and that draws on its own, and plus we are a team that hasn't gotten over the [hump] and a player like him would definitely help do so," Tuck told ESPN.com.

    The Jets also could be interested in Asomugha; he and Darrelle Revis are friends and have spoken in the past about joining forces. But the Jets have several free agents that they may look to re-sign, including another cornerback Antonio Cromartie, before Asomugha becomes an issue.

    Asomugha’s Raiders contract was voided when he failed to reach certain incentives this past season.

    The Jets and Giants won’t be alone; Asomugha will be one of the targeted free agents once a collective bargaining is reached. Tuck said he expects a labor deal to get done, but not right away.

    "Come July, come August, there will be a lot of scratching of heads and biting of teeth if we don't have a deal done," said Tuck, who was talking up his R.U.S.H. For Literacy charity. "Hopefully cooler heads prevail and I will find myself chasing some quarterbacks in September."

    Tuck also talked about the Giants bringing back Mathias Kiwanuka, who missed all but three games of last season with a herniated disc. Kiwanuka has been cleared to play, but his contract with the Giants is up. "[Kiwanuka] says he is healthy, been healthy," said Tuck, who spoke with Kiwanuka recently, according to the report.

    "This whole lockout puts [a question mark] on where he is going to stand as far as contract-wise. He looks good and has been working out. I am definitely going to talk to the powers that be, but I know they want him back. He is one of those players you want to make sure you get him back in a Giants uniform."

    Huge GMEN Fan. HOpe they hold onto S. Smith Hixon due to the fact that they are both coming off injuries and other teams may be a bit leary on taking a chance on them. That could add up to the Gmen resigning both of them for alot less money then it would have taken had they both had injury free good seasons coming into free agency. The Giants had said they would spar no exp trying to resign AB. Lets hope this lockout ends soon they can get back to the business of building this seasons team.

    I wouldn't be overly crushed if we lost Steve Smith I think we have enough depth at the WR position with Nicks, Super Mario & I think Ramses Barden has the potential to be a star someday, but I totally agree putting a tender on him makes absolute sense. The Devin Thomas signing last year intrigued me I wonder if he has any kind of future here or it he was just a stopgap insurance solution. I lived down in DC for most of last year a lot of people had high hopes for that kid but it never materialized. Wonder if he could have a future in NY if given an opportunity

    I dont know if he has a real chance with this team.. we have alot of recievers man.. Hixon was hurt, we still got that kid victor cruz and to me Derek Hagan showed the Giants he deserves to be on the team next season after we cut him and re-signed him and he stepped up in the last few games and made some nice plays

    Good point about Victor Cruz he seems like he'd make a perfect slot receiver someday. Showed some real promise last pre-season. & Hixon & Hagan will be in the mix too no doubt. I hope Barden comes out in pre-season & takes hold of a regular spot he can be a huge weapon for us. 6'6" with hands the size of baseball gloves & a nice vertical leap, the dude can snatch a pass out of thin air with 1 hand with no problems at all. Maybe the next Plax with the right development (hopefully leaves the gun at home)

    Losing Domenik Hixon killed our return game last year. Brought back horrible flashbacks of RW McQuarters returning kicks. We really need Hixon to be healthy again this year he adds a dimension to our team that is hard to replace.
