Karlos Dansby loves New York?

Karlos Dansby a New York Giant? Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports this morning that the Arizona free-agent linebacker is playing the "I Love New York" card.

"Oh, that’s a whole ‘nother animal, man," Dansby said. "Playing in New York? Who wouldn’t want to play in New York? That’s just like playing for the Dallas Cowboys, you know what I’m saying? It’s a big market. You’re going to get an opportunity to be prime time. It’s a huge market. I wouldn’t mind playing in a huge market. I wouldn’t mind at all.

"It’s a tough situation to be in for me. Like I said, I want to make sure I’m comfortable, my family is comfortable, and everybody’s happy with the situation. Like I said, Arizona is up first. They gave me the first opportunity so they are the first ones I’m going to take a look at."

Vacchiano says, though, that Dansby is looking for huge money. If that is the case, I am not so sure the Giants will be willing to give it to him.

We all know splashy, expensive free-agent signings are not the Giants' style. The Giants need an outside linebacker, though, and Dansby is a good one. Is he enough of an impact player for GM Jerry Reese to spend big money on him?

I have my doubts.

  • Ex-Giants coach Jim Fassel has finally landed a coaching gig ... in the newly-formed UFL. Things ended badly for Fassel in New York, but he is better qualified and a better head coach than a lot of guys who have gotten jobs in the last five years. I have never quite figured out why Fassel has not been able to land another NFL opportunity.
