Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Let's check the Giants-related headlines for your 'Weatherford Wednesday.'
How big is the signing of cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for the Giants? Safety Antrel Rolle said it was "a huge signing" during an appearance Tuesday on the Michael Kay Show. Listen to the full podcast here.
"This is a huge signing," Rolle told Kay. "This guy, he's as good as it gets. He's the best athlete I've ever seen on a football field when you're talking about playing the corner position."
ESPN's Dan Graziano, the blogger everyone loves to hate, offered his take on all of the moves the Giants have made:
If you're a Giants fan, this is an exciting time, because your team is taking shape and you can imagine the great things the exciting new players who are being brought in can do together. It's an exciting time for the people who run the Giants, too. Things will feel fresh and new once this group gets together, and that's always fun. But a lot still rests on the ability of them to bring all of these pieces together and make it all work.
[Valentine's View: No matter what he says, I know many of you will go off on Graziano for being too negative. Understand a couple of things first, though. Graziano, and all of the writers who cover the Giants -- including yours truly -- are not part of the Giants. These people are not paid to root for the Giants or only say nice things. They are paid to cover the Giants, to report, analyze and offer opinion. Their job -- and mine -- is to offer what they really believe, not what they think fans want to hear.]
Pat Traina has taken a stab at predicting what the Giants' starting lineup will look like next season.
Giants' co-owner Steve Tisch believes NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will discipline Indianapolis Colts' owner Jim Irsay following his DUI arrest. "I think he's gonna make a statement," Tisch told TMZ.
With all of the Giants' moves in free agency it is pretty obvious that cornerback Terrell Thomas needs to find a new team. Trying to do just just, Thomas visited with the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday.
