Below is the list of former New York Giants who currently remain unrestricted free agents. Is there anyone on the list who you would like to see back with the Giants in 2013?
Ramses Barden (WR)
Travis Beckum (TE)
Rocky Bernard (DT)
Bruce Johnson (CB)
Sean Locklear (OL)
Kregg Lumpkin (RB)
Justin Tryon (CB)
Lawrence Tynes (PK)
Brian Witherspoon (CB)
The list, obviously, does not include running back Ahmad Bradshaw and linebacker Michael Boley. They are players cut by the Giants, not players who hit the open market simply because their contracts expired.
Barden seems likely to be the player on the list who garners the most support, and while my feeling is that it would be better for both Barden and the Giants to move on from each other that viewpoint makes some sense. The Giants did carry six wide receivers a season ago, and right now there appears to be one roster spot open behind Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Reuben Randle, Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan.
If Locklear were healthy perhaps the Giants would bring him to camp as a potential backup at tackle, but most of what you hear is that it seems he won't be ready to play after suffering a knee injury late last season.
Finally, is anyone else surprised Lawrence Tynes doesn't have a job? The former Giants placekicker thought he might find a nice pay day in free agency.That hasn't happened, and doesn't seem like it's going to.
