Rotoworld reports that Giants CB Jayron Hosley is on the roster bubble.

“The Giants have been aggressive in upgrading their cornerback depth, adding Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond and Zack Bowman, while re-signing Trumaine McBride. Hosley, 23, has struggled with injuries since entering the league as a 2012 third-round pick and will compete for a backup job.”

Mike Evans at 12 would make this offseason really special.

Drafting Ebron at 12 would be a massive mistake, he's worthy of a 1st rd. pick, but not at 12, he's not consistent enough and isn't a great blocker, i really don't care how athletic he is, doesn't matter much if he can beat a linebacker off the line and split the safeties if he can't catch the pass that gets thrown to him.


EXPLOSIVE ???!!!???

More like a Controlled Burn....

After REESE handed out 29,

1 Year Contracts, in 2013.....

it's SAFE to say,

REESE Knew how BUZY he would be in 2014....


REESE STARTed Rebuilding the GIANTs,

since week 5,

when he went looking for a LBer....

and Never Stopped,

i sure he has had, MANY Sleepless nights,

 the Last 6 months...........


Hosley could be cut if they draft someone this year, if not he will stay. Need to carry 6 CBs in the new pass happy NFL

Tuitt is an interesting prospect, but would only want him if he fell to us in the 2nd (which is highly unlikely)
