Many of you have been clamoring for Herzlich to be a Giant, and I have been rooting for this myself. Monday night Herzlich was reportedly set to head to Baltimore to join the Ravens, but this morning Twitter was alive with news that the Giants were still a possibility.

Herzlich, of course, was one of the best linebackers in the country before fighting a battle with bone cancer. He returned to the BC lineup, but was not as effective. He went undrafted despite being one of the players invited to Radio City Music Hall for the draft.

He joins what is now a young, competitive group of linebackers for the Giants. A year ago the Giants drafted Phillip Dillard and Adrian Tracy. This year they drafted Greg Jones and Jacquian Williams. A young veteran free agent to compete with third-year player Clint Sintim is still a possibility.

This, though, is news I know Giants fans were hoping to hear.
