A few Giants notes on a Tuesday
- Bridgeport resident and author Steve Miller thought he had a good idea: Bring Plaxico Burress to Bridgeport to talk to kids about the dangers of carrying guns. But his idea has mostly fallen on deaf ears.
- Albert Haynesworth said during a radio interview yesterday that the Giants offered him an $80M contract. Not so, said Giants GM Jerry Reese in a conference call today. Reese had a lot to say on a variety of issues, and told the media that Matthias Kiwanuka will remain a Defensive End.
- RealGMFootball.com takes a look at some of the offensive options available to the Giants come draft time.
Finally, from USA Today, a medical update:
The progress report on Pro Bowl DE Osi Umenyiora, who missed all of last season with a preseason knee injury, is hopeful. He says he is about 85 percent back and that his rehab program will get him fully prepared for minicamp. RB Brandon Jacobs had minor knee surgery and says it's 100 percent now. DE Robert Henderson (foot) hurt himself as a rookie in training camp and is healed now. OT Guy Whimper, also with a foot injury, should be fine. WR-KR David Tyree (knee) is ready to play, but there is some doubt that the Giants will keep him.
