McGahee a good fit for Giants?

The Buffalo Bills have reportedly put running back Willis McGahee on the trade block, and Giants GM Jerry Reese appears to be interested.

"There is some talk about Willis out there," Reese told reporters Saturday morning. "We'll investigate Willis. We'll investigate everybody out there with trade talks. We'll leave no stones unturned."

What do you guys think of this?

McGahee has rushed for more than 1,000 yards twice in three seasons, but he is not a breakaway back and has a career average of 3.9 yards per carry.

I'm not sold on this idea, or on the idea of going out and getting a Thomas Jones or Ahman Green. Brandon Jacobs will handle the bulk of the running no matter who the Giants bring in, and I am not sure any of these guys would be content to take a back seat.

I'd prefer to see a different type of back, someone similar to the Jets Leon Washington, who could get 10-15 touches per game and provide a different style than the bruising Jacobs.

Your thoughts?
