Here are a few New York Giants notes for your reading pleasure today.
- Former Cleveland tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. thinks Browns' wide receiver Braylon Edwards would love to be a Giant.
"For some reason I don’t," Winslow said. "I know Braylon would love to go to New York. The Giants would fit him to the T and he would have so much fun up there. I know he loves Cleveland, but New York would be a great fit for him."
Winslow added: “He would love it there. He’s a city guy and, yeah, I know he would love it there.”
Considering all the extra draft picks the Giants possess (10 in all), I think there is a pretty decent possibility this move could happen.
- Ernie Palladino has a great interview with Tom Coughlin, in which he discusses a recent visit with legendary 98-year-old coach John Wooden. Coughlin described meeting Wooden this way:
“You know, people have those lists of 100 things they want to do before they die?” he said. “This was a top-10 for me. Top-10.”
- True Blue says the Giants might be eyeing USC wide receiver Patrick Turner as a late-round selection.
- Speaking of the draft, Mocking the Draft has a report that USC linebackers Clay Matthews III and Brian Cushing allegedly tested positive for steroids at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. Several other plays also reportedly tested positive for marijuana. If this is true, I think you can assume that Matthews and Cushing will see their draft stock plummet.
