After 5 seasons, the giants said good bye to Will Peterson. Sadly, his back will prevent him from playing football. I’m sure everyone else was ecited as I was by his 2004 season, thinking that Peterson (a 3rd round pick in 2001) was as good or better that Will Allen (the Giants 1st round pick in 2001). Now neither is with the the team.
“This is a very disappointing development for our ball club,” said Ernie Accorsi. “Will Peterson was a rising star cornerback and just ran into very tough luck last year with the back injury. We wanted to wait as long as we possibly could on his recovery.”
The Giants also released their new DT. Strange that he was signed and released one day later. I won’t bother learning to spell his name – Junior something.
The Giants also signed a backup QB in Rob Johnson. Tim Hasselbeck, Jared Lorenzen and Josh Harris are the other QBs behind Manning and I’m not clear on how this will play out. You would expect Johnson and Hasselbeck to be #2 and #3 based on talent but the #3 QB is often a developmental prospect. That could be Lorenzen if the Giants aren’t ready to give up on him yet.
