John Fennelly, Lead WriterGiants’ 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.
