Why is Wynn a Giant?

New, comments

So, what does the signing of defensive end Renaldo Wynn , a 12-year veteran, mean for the Giants?

  • Does it mean they think Michael Strahan is retiring? I don't know, but they are definitely hedging their bets.
  • Does it mean they would really like to keep Mathias Kiwanuka at linebacker, at least on running downs? Definitely.
  • Does it mean Wynn can expect a lot of playing time? Even if Strahan retires, the Giants have Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck, as well as Dave Tollefson and Jay Alford, both of whom showed some ability last season. They also have sixth-round draft pick Robert Henderson.

Wynn played for Giants coach Tom Coughlin in Jacksonville. To me, this is simply a case of the Giants bringing in a player Coughlin respects to be absolutely certain they have enough depth on the defensive front.

Wynn won't be asked to do anything great. Just play an occasional series, defend the run and hold his own.
