Giants GM Jerry Reese spoke to reporters today at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and basically revealed the team’s roster will contain “significant differences” this season.
He also indicated that unrestricted free agents DE Justin Tuck and WR Hakeem Nicks will be allowed to discover their value on the free agent market next month. (“They deserve to see what the market will be.”)
Although he is optimistic that RB David Wilson will make it back this season, Reese identified RB as a position the team was looking to augment.
As for their strategy, it’s no secret – Reese will stick to taking the best player available. He also is amenable to trading back if the offer is right…
“We’ll try and get the best player available on the board,” Reese said Saturday at the NFL Combine as per Jordan Raanan of the Star-Ledger. “We’ll keep our options open there. If someone wants to come up to 12 and entertain us moving back, we’ll consider that as well.”
Reese was asked if the Giants would draft another QB this May. He said probably not in the first round, but if the right player came along at the right spot, he wouldn’t be afraid to take him.
“It’s a big puzzle,” Reese said of the exercise of filling out a roster. “We’ll figure it out.”
