Good morning New York Giants fans! Here are some news and updates for this Monday morning.
Giants may have interest in Aldon Smith
There is interest in Aldon Smith from several NFL teams, notably NY Giants. But what's really important is a life spiraling out of control.— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) August 10, 2015
If true, this news is completely shocking as the Giants tend to avoid players with these kinds of off the field issues. Smith has recently been arrested for vandalism, a hit and run and for driving under the influence. In previous years he has been arrested for multiple DUIs, and has failed the substance abuse policy. In one event, he had created havoc at the Los Angeles International Airport. However, the Giants have a big need for a proven pass rusher with the Jason-Pierre Paul injury. This could simply be the Giants doing their due diligence on a player, something they always do.
Giants say they keep all their options open but personally I'd find it hard to believe they'd consider Smith right now ...— Patricia Traina (@Patricia_Traina) August 10, 2015
...given his off field issues. First priority is to get him on track. Besides they should be able to generate pass rush with Kennard at OLB.— Patricia Traina (@Patricia_Traina) August 10, 2015
