Sometimes it seems like Steve Tisch is "that other guy who owns the New York Giants." Tisch's quotes seem to pop up more often in TMZ than in football publications, while John Mara answers the serious football questions. Tisch, though, is at the NFL owner's meetings and had some interesting things to say about the Giants and free agency.
To tell the story, we're going to more or less hijack the Twitter feed of Jonathan Clegg of the Wall Street Journal (@CleggJon) for a couple of minutes. Here is Clegg's stream of tweets from his conversation Monday with Tisch.
