OL is to expensive with the cap room we have. If guys come cheap, it'll be possible but probably only after a JPP extension. So ask why haven't we extended JPP yet, not why we haven't signed OL.
At the end of the day it looks like we will just draft OT since the prices are really too high.
Rhett is a big boy at 6"5. He seems like he has decent hands too. Just not a burner. He'll be a pure blocker that can lineup anywhere and then haul in 3 yard dumps when plays break down. Plus as a big guy he's a red zone target.
Rhett is basically the Dwayne Harris of the offense. Glue guy that allows the Giants to lineup 3+ WRs all over the place without sacrificing pass protection.
It's a good idea if you can add another solid OT.
Damn....I don't know anything about this draft class, but is it weak on oline talent? Because guys are getting overpaid all over the place.
I think we're going into this season with the same line fellas.
It's day 1 and y'all spazzing already lmao we don't have a lot of money this year. I'm happy we got B marsh. We will finish up Fa with the second tier of free agents and the draft is coming.
This is a CB draft.
I trust our FO to draft a starting lineman. They usually do a good job. They missed on Flowers, but they've usually nailed the high round OL guys.
I expect another Pugh kind of pick. Someone not really on the radar but will get the job done. The gamble is going to be how ready the kid will be for a starting gig Week 1.
This is why it's important to grab a cheap OL depth piece in FA. But we're going to have to wait for the second phase of FA, and we're going to need to free up some cap with re-structuring and some cuts. Really the best way is JPP's extension with a low salary in year 1.
Clady or beachum has to be on this roster. If nothing else than to push flowers
Anything on Zach Brown? I'm surprised no one signed him yet. I would love for Reese to free up some cap space by releasing JT Thomas and give Brown a 2 year contract. The free agent market for LBs seems to be weak this year, but Brown is someone i would absolutely consider especially if we don't bring back Robinson. Also the LB class in this year's draft is a lot more weaker compared to the DT/DE class. Outside of Reuben Foster and Zach Cunningham, i would only consider Haason Reddick since he looks to be a speedy sideline to sideline OLB in a 4-3 defense. Which is why i would rather sign a veteran LB like Brown and draft a DT in the 2nd round like Montravious Adams or Caleb Brantley. Unless of course Reese will stay put with Jay Bromley as Hankins' replacement.

We also need a place kicker . Gould has signed elsewhere. Nick Folk maybe ? Any other thoughts?

and with the 55th the New York football Giants select Tyus Bowser, Edge rusher from the University of Houston
The tackle from Wisconsin would be a good LT, But he will be gone before us .
Lets rebuild our line Young and it wont break the bank
Austin Pasztor (26)
