Free Agent Linebackers who the giants should give a look to.

Hey guys, I'm Ian I've been around for a couple years I just don't post often (I think 160ish in a handful of years) I read daily and I wanted to give back to the community with a list I've created:

Here's a list of some of the top linebackers that are free agents. I'm not 100% sure who will be restricted/unrestricted for obvious reasons.

*= Ian's picks!

Outside LBS:

*James Anderson, OLB, Panthers. Age: 27 103 tackle 3.5 sacks: With the Panthers looking to franchise their starting Center (Ryan Kalil) he should be an UFA, should they decide not to franchise Ryan Kalil then we should look at both!

*Rocky McIntosh, OLB, Redskins. Age: 28: Not a great year from his normally stellar performances but that's all because of the switch to a 3-4, why not make him the next Antonio Pierce? Except he's a better athlete. We've all seen how much of a stud this guy is.


Thomas Howard, OLB, Raiders. Age: 28: Solid player who was out of favor last year but we all know how the raiders run, and that is idiotically.


Manny Lawson, OLB, 49ers. Age: 27: Strong in coverage from what I've seen and solid run support, I think he's more suited towards a 3-4 but what do I know!



Now here come some of my favorite players!

Inside Linebackers:


*Barrett Ruud, ILB, Buccaneers. Age: 28:  Poor season last year but the guy has a history of being a beast. He's fast a little undersized but smart enough to make up for it.


Stewart Bradley, ILB, Eagles. Age: 27: He's a little similar to Ruud, had a poor season but was coming off of surgery, can play inside or outside. Take ya pick! We'd also be stealing from the eagles weak linebacker corps.


*******************************Paul Posluszny, ILB, Bills. Age: 26: I cannot tell you how much I like this player, does everything well, wouldn't have to move far and I'm sure he'd love to be on the next Superbowl winning team! He's only 26!


Kirk Morrison, ILB, Jaguars. Age: 29: I wanted to trade for him last season, and he's a good player, I just think he's a bit of a risk age wise, could only have two years left, or could have 7. Who knows.


**Stephen Tulloch, ILB, Titans. Age: 26: Maybe Kieth Bullock can do a bit of recruiting? Haha, he's a stud, will be a stud and obviously is use to the 4-3. Does everything well and is an athlete.




and just for kicks a center I'd love for us to sign:

Lyle Sendlein, C, Cardinals. Age: 27, Cardinals only quality offensive lineman in my opinion. Although he's starting quality and he'd probably just be depth here unless we're getting rid of O'hara, which would be sad.
