Which guy would you rather have?

New, comments

The Philadelphia Eagles have released Brian Westbrook. The Carolina Panthers won't franchise Julius Peppers, and he will become a free agent. We already know San Diego has parted ways with LaDainian Tomlinson.

So, if you were Jerry Reese and you had your choice which of those guys would you bring to the Giants? Or, would you run for the hills and stay away from all three?

Me? I'm staying away from all three.

Peppers is a terrific player, but he's a malcontent who plays when he fels like it. Plus, he will be looking for huge money the Giants would be unlikely to pay.

Westbrook has been a thorn in the Giants side for a long time, but he is as fragile as a China doll these days. Running back is a young man's position, and by NFL standards Westbrook is not young anymore.

Same with Tomlinson. There are an awful lot of miles on those tires. And he is going to want more money and more carries than the Giants would likely be willing to give. The Giants have plenty of options at running back.
