Interesting mock draft from Pat Kirwan

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

I haven’t really been keeping up with the mock drafts but this one is sparking a bit of controversy because of this pick:

15. New York Giants
Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
The Giants need linebacker help and Weatherspoon is a guy with nearly 400 tackles in college who runs 4.6 in the 40. He can call a defense and play middle or weakside linebacker. (Previous pick: Sergio Kindle)

I know some people who say Weatherspoon is too small to play MLB. Personally I still remember Jonathan Vilma going to the Jets and winning rookie of the year at MLB. I think he was 230 pounds. Weatherspoon is listed at 6’1″ and 240 lbs. That may be high but still seems funny to say he’s too small.

Giants players’ performance based pay

Friday, March 12th, 2010

Short article here on Giants players’ performance based pay. It has nothing to do with how well you perform though – just how much playing time you get compared to how little money you make.

Bruce Johnson, $270,766

This CB saw lots of playing time due to injuries and since he was a 7th round pick had a low salary.

Michael Johnson, $235,445

We didn’t like watching him on the field most of the time but he was out there a lot thanks to injuries and no depth at safety.

Kevin Boss, $221,100

Turning out to be a very solid TE and a great value for a 4th round pick.

Terrell Thomas, $207,125

Another CB.

Aaron Rouse, $193,598.

A safety (now released) who saw a bunch of playing time even though the Giants signed him well into the season.

Jim Sorgi is Giants backup QB

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Reports are coming in that the Giants have signed former Colts backup QB Jim Sorgi to a one-year deal. Since Carr is gone the Giants had to do something and if Sorgi is healthy this seems as good as any other move the Giants could have made. You have to think he’ll either beat out Rhett Bomar (or be cut cause his health is an issue)

Welcome to the New York Football Giants Antrel Rolle

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

The Giants have a real safety in addition to Kenny Phillips. In a sweet move, the Giants eliminated their biggest need by getting a safety who can cover. Rolle, a 27 year-old, 5 year vet is actually a converted CB. He played in his first pro bowl last season.

He seems like a good guy. Rolle basically says that the Cardinals would have matched any offer but he felt home when he met with Giants’ coaches.

Aaron Rouse is gone. The Giants could still draft a safety – the guys on our roster after Phillips and Rolle seem pretty replaceable – it’s just no longer a huge need.

I assume the Giants no longer have any interest in Darren Sharper (unrestricted free agent, New Orleans Saints), Antoine Bethea (restricted free agent, Indianapolis Colts), and Oshiomogho Atogwe (restricted free agent, St. Louis Rams).
