Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's look around the Inter-Google and see what stories of interest we can find this morning.
ESPN NFC East blogger Matt Mosley opined on Wednesday that the Giants won't let free-agent-to-be Ahmad Bradshaw hit the open market. Here is part of what Mosley wrote:
Despite his fumbling issues, Bradshaw has a chance to be the Giants' feature back for the next four or five seasons. ... He's a former seventh-round pick who has become an explosive player in the league.
Reese isn't going to give other teams a shot at him.
That, of course, is one man's opinion. Fumbling issues aside, it would certainly be really difficult to let a 25-year-old playmaker like Bradshaw get away. The question for the Giants will be whether or not they want to pay him elite running back money. It's not an easy question to answer.
Now that former New York Giants quarterbacks coach Chris Palmer is back in the NFL as offensive coordinator with the Tennessee Titans, he is spilling the beans on why he left the Giants after the 2009 season. Palmer told The Tennessean that he wanted a clause in his contract allowing him to interview for offensive coordinator positions. The Giants refused so Palmer walked, ending up as coach/general manager of the Hartford Colonials of the UFL.
USA Today has taken a look back at the best and worst moments of the 2010 season. It is a fun list, if you gloss over the one time the Giants are mentioned.
Sports Illustrated is out with its list of the top 50 2011 NFL Draft prospects heading into the upcoming Scouting Combine. That list is certain to change after the combine, but there are a lot of names on there that are likely to be of interest to the Giants.
Former Giant and current Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark had some really interesting things to say about the ongoing labor dispute during a recent radio interview. Even better, Clark took a pretty obvious swipe at Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones over the way Super Bowl week unfolded.
