This one is a couple of days old, but worth noting. Peter King of 'Monday Morning Quarterback' examined the history of free agency and found that spending big does not translate into winning big. It's worth a read, especially if you're still aggravated by the Giants not making a bunch of splashy moves.
Speaking of free agency, NFL.com lists the Giants' signing of running back Shane Vereen as one of the best under-the-radar signings thus far.
Dan Graziano of ESPN says the Giants wouldn't be forced to sign so many marginal players if GM Jerry Reese had done a better job in the draft.
Nat Berhe, entering his second season, is looking forward to his opportunity to prove he can handle one of the safety spots for the Giants.:
"Hey, everybody's entitled to their own opinion,'' Berhe, about to enter his second season with the Giants, told The Post. "If you want to panic, you can panic. If you don't, you don't have to. The best thing I can say is, just wait on it and you'll see.''
Here are five safeties available in the draft who might help the Giants.
