Good morning, New York Giants fans! It's another absolutely frigid morning here in the Northeast, so let's get warmed up for the day with a few Giants headlines.
It is way too early for this kind of stuff, of course, but our friends over at Stampede Blue, SB Nation's Indianapolis Colts web site, are predicting that the Giants will win the NFC East next season.
Ebenezer Samuel of the Daily News apparently spent part of his day on Thursday following Steve Weatherford around.
Steve Weatherford said his back is now fully healthy. His injured ankle is not, but he expects it to be recovered by OTAs/minicamp.— Ebenezer Samuel (@ebenezersamuel) February 5, 2015
Weatherford said he has had "good conversations" with Coughlin and Reese. Thinks his 2014 showed a lot about his toughness.— Ebenezer Samuel (@ebenezersamuel) February 5, 2015
I knew Weatherford was nutty enough to show up at a hospital to visit kids dressed as Cupid. I did not, however, know that he played through a back injury last season as well as the torn ligaments in his ankle.
Pat Traina takes a look at what the return of Steve Spagnuolo as defensive coordinator means for the Giants defense.
NJ.com ranks the Giants free agents in order of importance.
Here are a couple of notes about players we have listed as potential free-agent targets for the Giants:
-- Pro Football Rumors profiles Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga, and says "if he does not re-sign with the Packers before free agency opens on March 10, he will likely be one of the first players to come off the board, and his presence should be a great comfort to whatever quarterback lines up behind him."
-- The Miami Dolphins are expected to let running back Knowshon Moreno test the free-agent market.
