Almost gone. At least, that was the situation when I went to bed Saturday night.
Ahh, the ups and downs of free agency. Friday night and Saturday our New York Giants celebrated the signing of free-agent safety Antrel Rolle.
Today the Giants are looking at losing a couple of players.
- Backup quarterback David Carr could be heading to the San Francisco 49ers, where, after trashing Carr the other day, linebacker Patrick Willis will have some 'splaining to do. Carr is a guy whose loss may not seem significant, as long as Eli Manning is healthy. The Giants don't really want to have to replace him, though.
- Defensive tackle Fred Robbins is apparently heading to St. Louis to join ex-Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. You could call it a big loss, but only because the 325-pound Robbins is a very large man. There isn't much gas left in Robbins' tank, and there really wasn't a place for him in New York anymore. So, that move is no big deal.
