The Giants may have finally found the big, bruising fullback they have been seeking since the off-season. On Tuesday they were awarded Madison Hedgecock on waivers from St. Louis and released Robert Douglas.
Hedgecock is 6-foot-3, 266 pounds. It sound like he will get playing time right away.
Giants beat writer Ernie Palladino of the Journal News thinks the move could help the Giants. Here is some of what Palladino had to say.
Hedgecock is a pretty good special teams player, too, having made 19 tackles there in 2005, when he was the Rams' seventh-round draft pick.
