Sam SpiegelmanDuring the first day of OTAs Wednesday, it was Mark Herzlich who lined up as the Giants middle linebacker.
It comes as a bit of a surprise as the team signed veteran free agent Dan Connor to compete — and many believe — take the job after Michael Boley was released and the team opted not to re-sign Chase Blackburn.
In related linebacking news, Herzlich was flanked by Spencer Paysinger and Keith Rivers, not Jacquian Williams.
The linebacking corps is one the many storylines as the Giants return to the field today and tomorrow.
