The Ledger and The Daily News estimate that the Giants will be $6 million under a 92 million doallr 2006 salary cap (could 92 million – 96 million). This includes getting rid of Green, Whittle, and Brent Alexander (sad that the guy who led our team in interceptions – he had 4 – isn’t very good).
Daid Tyree needs a long-term deal. Chad Morton may be back – it seems the Giants like him better than Ponder. I think Ponder is a slightly better kickoff returner, but Morton can return both kickoffs and punts. Plus he’s a running back, and I suppose the Giants need a 4th running back more than they need a 10th wide receiver…
And Newsday says Shaun Williams will be cut and that the Giants may be interested in Tank Williams. Now the Tank Willims thing must be pure speculation on their part, but he would be quite an upgrade over Shaun Williams. The Giants would still need another safety.
Rumors that make me particularly happy go something like this: Feagles will come back one more year provided he can spend some time with his family each week.
The Daily News also reported that Seubert practiced some at center last year and may be O’Haras backup. That’s cool, but it would be even cooler if Seubert returned to his old self (the guy who pushed people backwards) and became our starting center. Don’t get me wrong, O’hara is good (better than I expected he would be) but he doesn’t push people around like Seubert used to.
