Hynoski back with Giants

After not getting tendered by the Giants and a dalliance with the Detroit Lions, FB Henry Hynoski has returned to the Giants’ fold.

John Fennelly, Lead Writer

Hynoski was a restricted free agent who was not offered a non-compensatory tender by the Giants, which would have been worth over $1.4 million this season, so the Giants saved $400k by handling Hyno this way.

By virtue, he was allowed to test the free agent market. It appeared he would end up in Detroit, but now he’s back to battle Jon Conner for the FB job.

Perosnally, I thought the Giants were sold on Conner, but Tom Coughlin does not like to go to camp with positions going uncontested. He believes in competition. Only one FB will be carried on the roster, however.

I hope Hynocerous wins the spot.

I want to see his TD dance again. :-)

But he doesn't HAVE to be strictly a FB, John. Why couldn't he adapt to playing the role that Bear Pascoe had? Pascoe played both TE and FB, so why couldn't Hynoski?

@spider43  what makes you think Pascoe won't resign with the Giants?

@rico... Not saying Pascoe doesn't resign, but do the Giants want him back?  They still have Robinson and Donnell on the roster and they have been rumored to be interested in obtaining another TE. That doesn't seem to leave any room for Pascoe, no matter how cheap a contract he may be at this point. Hynoski seemed to be capable as a receiver, so making him in the Pascoe role would seem to make sense to me. That way, they could keep both Connor and Hynoski. I'm all for that. The more good blockers on the field, especially in short yardage and goal line situations, the better.
