New York Giants News & Notes: Giants Sign Two More Draft Picks

Mike Garafolo reports that the Giants signed offensive tackle Mitch Petrus and punter Matt Dodge yesterday. That leaves only first and second round picks Jason Pierre-Paul and Linval Joseph left to sign. Hopefully both of them get deals done before training camp starts. Garafolo also has a summer questionnaire with tight end Kevin Boss.

The Giants also claimed WR/KR Chris Davis from the Cincinnati Bengals. Davis is obviously being brought in to compete for the primary kick return job in the wake of Domenik Hixon's season ending injury.

Those of you who are still mad at Tiki Barber will love this story: he claims he is too broke to pay his divorce settlement and his career is in tatters.

ESPN.com is running a series on each NFL franchise's best individual team, and Matt Mosley believes that it's the 1986 Giants. I can't disagree with him at all: the 1990 and 2007 teams had magical runs, but neither had the beginning to end dominance that the '86 squad had. Just look at their combined playoff scores: 105-23. I've always felt that they get overlooked when people discuss the greatest teams of all-time, mostly because they had the misfortune of coming just one season after the 1985 Bears. Perhaps most interesting in that post is that Mosley gives the 2000 Giants the third runner up spot, instead of one of the great teams of the 50's or early 60's.

Finally, Yahoo!'s Jason Cole ranks the NFL's offensive lines, and he has the Giants at #8, one spot behind the Jets, though they are the 3rd highest NFC team and are ahead of the rest of the NFC East. What do you guys think, too high, too low, or just right?
