Rashad Jennings says he will sign with Giants

RB Rashad Jennings tweeted that he will sign with the Giants.

Jennings had 733 yards on 163 attempts with the Raiders last season. He scored six touchdowns. He rushed for 88 yards against the Giants on November 10, 2013.

Jennings is a versatile back, catching 36 passes last year for 292 yards (an average of 8.1 per) and Ben McAdoo apparently wants his backs to be able to handle the football in multiple ways.

Jennings will join Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox and John Conner in the Giants’ backfield this season. The theme: they can all catch the football.

And at 6’1′, 230, Jennings is big enough to placate one of Tom Coughlin’s pet peeves: pass protection. He also had some experience as a kick returner during his days in Jacksonville.

What does this mean for Andre Brown? Well, depending on the health of David Wilson (neck), Brown could be back if he is not signed away by another club by then.

Big dude, pass catcher and he's gonna have a revamped o-line to run behind, he could have some pretty good numbers, read that the Giants are gonna meet with Jacoby Jones on Wednesday, bringing him on board would give the G-men a legit threat on kick and punt returns
