New York Giants news, 3/8: Ticket prices are going up

Free agency chatter heats up, Pro Days have begun

NFL: Detroit Lions at New York Giants Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

It is going to cost you more to attend a New York Giants game at MetLife Stadium next season. The Giants have reportedly announced a hike in ticket prices that averages four percent.

Per the New York Post:

Tickets increase $10 per game for Field 1 pricing (lower level between the 30-yard lines on the west side of the stadium) and increase $5 per game for all other non-club tickets. All club ticket prices remain the same.

So, following their first playoff berth in five years you will have to dig a little deeper into your wallet to see the Giants in 2017.

Free Agency: Market taking shape

We learned a few things on Tuesday.

  • The Giants reportedly have shown interest in veteran blocking tight end Anthony Fasano. They are also apparently keeping tabs on the top end of the tight end market, but the three-year, $19 million deal Jack Doyle got to stay with the Indianapolis Colts means top-end prices are likely to be prohibitive for the Giants.
  • We talked on Tuesday about how the offensive tackle market might be thin for the Giants. If the report that Russell Okung and the Denver Broncos are talking about a return is accurate, the market could get even thinner. Okung, representing himself, cannot talk to any teams other than the Broncos until the free agent signing period open Thursday at 4 p.m. ET.
  • D.J. Fluker was released by the Los Angeles Chargers on Tuesday. The Giants liked Fluker coming out of Alabama in the 2013 NFL Draft, but he was off the board when the Giants picked 19th and selected Justin Pugh. He can play right guard or right tackle, both positions where the Giants could have a need. They could be a suitor for him now.
  • The Seattle Seahawks or Oakland Raiders appear to be the “most likely” landing spots for running back Adrian Peterson, who hasn’t exactly found a robust market. If Peterson winds up in Oakland, could that end up dropping Latavius Murray into the Giants’ lap?
  • The Giants have reportedly expressed interest in Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver Terrelle Pryor. The price tag, though, is again likely to be prohibitive for the Giants. Pryor is said to be looking for $12 million annually.

NFL Draft: RB Joe Mixon set for Pro Day

The 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is barely in the rear view mirror and the next phase — Pro Days — is already upon us. SB Nation has the complete Pro Day schedule.

The Pro Day that will draw the most attention Wednesday is at Oklahoma, where running back Joe Mixon will participate. Mixon, of course, is the talented running back who was not invited to the Combine because of a 2014 off-the-field incident where he punched a female Oklahoma student in the face.

Alabama and Temple will also hold their Pro Days on Wednesday.
