Here are a few interesting New York Giants' stories for you on what promises to be a rainy Saturday here in upstate New York.
- The Giants signed 7th-round pick Stoney Woodson Friday, and cut cornerback Rashad Barksdale. Ralph Vacchiano reminds that since the Giants can only bring 80 players to training camp (a really stupid limit), each signed draft pick will lead to a player being cut.
- I dropped a picture on you the other day of linebacker Danny Clark and his tricked-out Smart car. Well, I got a note from tight end George Wrighster the other day to let me know that the players have some thoughts of their own about the car.
Players tell him they are gonna "pick his car up and put it in the back of their pickup trucks". Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, and Chris Canty all think they can not only pick up his smart car but if it were a running back coming through the hole they could tackle it. I know it's not possible because it's a car, but there's a small piece of me that feels the same way.
That's funny stuff. Yes, I do kinda like Wrighster. And yes, he really did shoot me an e-mail to point out his blog post.
- How do you feel about the Giants adding corporate logos to their practice jerseys? I really don't care, but I don't look forward to the day when this kind of stuff finds its way on to game uniforms.
