Giants Reportedly Interested in Jets' Brad Smith

One of the gaping holes in the Giants' 2010 campaign was the lack of a return game, and subsequently how that affected field position. The loss of Domenik Hixon to a preseason injury was way more critical than what many of us expected. In fact, the G-men ranked next to last in kickoff return average with a 19.0 yard average; and tied for last in punt return average with a putrid 6.0 mark. So it would stand to reason that with Jets' WR/KR Brad Smith on the free agent market, that the Giants would be interested.

The New York Post has reported that the Giants and Patriots have been added to the list of teams inquiring about Smith, along with the Bears and Bills. Last season, Smith averaged 28.6 yards on 50 kickoff returns, with two touchdowns. He also was a versatile and dangerous offensive weapon for Rex Ryan, with a 7.9 yards-per-carry rushing average out of the wildcat formation; and of course, he has value as an emergency quarterback.

So I'd have to say the Giants interest in Smith is both genuine, and that they might even pursue him aggressively. What do you think?
