We told you the Giants would be on the defensive during free agency and Day One proved that statement to be true.
They let TE Martellus Bennett walk uncontested to Chicago, who gave the 26 year-old self-proclaimed Black Unicorn a four-year, $20 million contract. Let’s see how Jay Cutler reacts when Bennett drops a pass or fails to complete a route…
To offset that loss, the Giants made two insignificant moves. They re-signed RB Ryan Torain, who they didn’t deem worthy of tendering a day earlier, and CB Aaron Ross, their former first-round selection who did very little outside of battle injuries during his tenure here.
Today should be no different. With only a small amount of cap space to work with, Giant fans should not be expecting a huge splash from the four-time Super Bowl champions over the next few weeks.
They would like to sign another offensive lineman this winter. No word on any progress with Kevin Boothe, their first choice. It was rumored they were interested in the Jets’ Matt Slauson. Mitch Petrus was released by the Titans yesterday, but there were no rumblings on whether the Giants had any interest in bringing him back.
