Broncos interested in Beason; Tuck to visit Raiders

John Fennelly, Lead Writer

Giants’ GM Jerry Reese said he would let his UFAs test the open market and so far he’s stuck to his word.

As per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, DE Justin Tuck will join former Steelers’ LB Lamarr Woodley in Oakland today for a visit with Raiders’ GM Reggie McKenzie.

They have tons of money to spend, that’s for sure. But how much more of an offer will Tuck get from the Raiders then he’ll get from the Giants, assuming Jerry Reese was serious in his offer last week?

Maybe not enough to uproot his family and charities and other business interests. Plus the Raiders are light years away from the Super Bowl. I still think he’s going to stay here.


The Denver Post is reporting the Broncos are “considering Jon Beason of the New York Giants, and possibly Baltimore’s Daryl Smith at middle linebacker.”

Again, no known negotiations, just a lot of conjecture. Denver is aiming their sights at just about any and every free agent right now, so we’ll take this with a grain of salt. The Giants will still not let Beason put his name on a contract without attempting to counter.

Thought Beason would be back, Giants gave up a pick for him and now are ok just letting him go, thought he played well for them and should have been brought back, guess he's asking for too much $$$

Depending on which Tuck is out there - we can replace the one who played for us the past few years (not including the second half of last season).


Beason needs to meet with other teams.  I'd be surprised if Denver can offer him more than the Giants already have offered - but its good for him to see what his value is.

Let Tuck walk, sign J Peppers

Sounds intriguing, but Peppers is 34 years old. I am sure if we signed him, he would be on the DL by week 4.

@fast_eddie @rico  My problem with Tuck is he was absent or hurting for 3.5 years until his "run for a contract"…


He may have been a great Giant and brand ambassador but not so much on the field since the last Super Bowl.which is getting further away in the review mirror.
