RB Rashad Jennings (Raiders), DE/LB O’Brien Schofield (Seahawks) and OL Geoff Schwartz (Chiefs) have agreed to terms with the Giants. WR Jacoby Jones (Ravens) will visit the Giants tomorrow.
CB Trumaine McBride, S Stevie Brown, RB Peyton Hillis, QB Curtis Painter and K Josh Brown all re-signed with the Giants and DE Justin Tuck may be on deck.
DT Linval Joseph signed with Minnesota. S Ryan Mundy agreed to terms with the Bears. TE Brandon Myers was inked to a contract by the Bucs. RB Andre Brown has drawn interest from the Raiders.
LB Jon Beason has not gotten a look as of yet. He is reportedly asking for big bucks. There is also the aspect of him representing himself in negotiations – something that teams usually shy away from. Perhaps he’ll hire an agent after he gets little or no offers and come back to the Giants.
WR Hakeem Nicks has not gotten an offer as of press time. It’s rumored the Panthers have some interest.
Tuck was joined on the crowded veteran DE market today by Julius Peppers and DeMarcus Ware, who were both cut. Another former All-Pro, Jared Allen, is also looking for a home. Another reason why he may be staying with the Giants.
The Giants, thought to be interested in Packers’ WR James Jones, C Evan Dietrich-Smith and TE Andrew Quarless, have not made a move towards any of them, as of yet.
On to tomorrow…
