New York Giants Notes: Report Says Highest RFA Tender Likely for Bradshaw

Running back Ahmad Bradshaw will "probably" get the highest free agent tender possible from the New York Giants this week, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Question is, will the tender actually mean anything once a new collective bargaining agreement is reached -- whenever that is.

Vacchiano explains that -- under current rules -- Bradshaw is a "restricted" free agent. Giving him the highest tender would guarantee him a one-year salary of roughly $3.4 million -- and allow the Giants to receive first- and third-round draft picks from whatever team signs Bradshaw should the Giants not match the contract offer.

To me, that sounds like a win-win for both Bradshaw and the Giants. Vacchiano further explains, though, that the tenders might be meaningless depending on free agency rules negotiated in the new CBA. So, we just have to wait and see.

Pat Summerall, legendary broadcaster and New York Giants placekicker, will receive the Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award in Sports Broadcasting.

Giants' defensive tackle Chris Canty answered some fan questions via the team's Facebook page. Canty has some encouraging words about Linval Joseph in the interview.
