Good morning, New York Giants fans. Good news for all those season ticket holders out there as the organization announced on Tuesday that they would not be raising ticket prices for 2018 season ticket holders. Let’s check out the rest of the headlines to get your Wednesday started.
ESPN staff writer Jordan Ranaan walks us through his predictions on what he thinks the Giants will do with Jenoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Brandon Marshall and more.
Here are the strength of schedule rankings based on last year’s records:
1. Green Bay Packers -- .539
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- .531
12. Carolina Panthers -- .512
13. Atlanta Falcons -- .508
14. Washington Redskins -- .504
18. Buffalo Bills -- .496
21. Baltimore Ravens -- .488
24. Los Angeles Chargers -- .480
31. Tennessee Titans -- .465
32. Houston Texans -- .453
“Being honest, that’s the reason I went to Carolina,” Hixon said on Big Blue Kickoff Live. “I had an opportunity to speak to him and take a visit down there. The relationship that we built in New York and just his personality and who he is and what type of man he is, I said, ‘I feel comfortable making the move.’ Going down there and seeing what he was doing and what he was doing was something I wanted to be a part of.”
It is franchise tag time in the NFL. Expect the Giants to sit this one out.
The Giants have 19 of their own unrestricted free agents to sort through once the market opens March 14, and it is a good bet the vast majority of them will not be re-signed. An argument can be made this new Giants regime, led by general manager Dave Gettleman, views all or almost all 19 players as expendable. And it is almost assured Gettleman will deem none of the players on the list worthy of the franchise tag.
