John Fennelly, Lead WriterThe Giants are still tweaking the roster, searching for all and any players that may be able to help fill their many open holes. Tuesday, they were to work out two quarterbacks, Matt Flynn and Josh Freeman, and a WR, Laron Byrd.
Flynn was a no-show, deciding to sign with one of his old teams – the Packers – rather than audition for the Giants. Freeman did show, but left without a contract.
Ebenezer Samuel of the Daily News thinks the Giants may not be done with him:
While Freeman has yet to sign, he could still be an option, and it’s possible the Giants are still evaluating him. Ex-Redskin Rex Grossman and the routinely disappointing Brady Quinn are among the free agent quarterbacks still available.
The Giants are expected to somehow add a quarterback in the coming days, even if that arm lasts only through offseason workouts and training camp. The Giants have veteran backup Curtis Painter and second-year man Ryan Nassib on the roster, and, at most, they’ll keep three QBs for the regular season.
Byrd also left town empty-handed. The recently-released Cardinal apparently did not impress the Giants yesterday…
WR LaRon Byrd also left visit with Giants without a deal today. Next stop for him: Visit to Dallas on Thursday.—

Former Vikings DT Kevin Williams had a two-day fling with the Giants as well, but thus far the two sides have yet to come to an agreement.
From Mark Craig of the Star Tribune:
“Had a good visit and gonna see what happens!” Williams said via text message, indicating that the two sides have not made a decision despite the fact Williams left town without a deal.
Williams, who arrived in New York on Monday night, has not ruled out playing what would be a 12th NFL season after spending the first 11 with the Vikings. The Giants were the first team to bring Williams in for a visit. They’re looking for a tackle to play alongside Cullen Jenkins after the Vikings signed nose tackle Linval Joseph earlier in free agency.
