“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.”

Giants’ franchise tag shrug may jump-start offensive line revamp | New York Post

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.
