Good morning, New York Giants fans!
It’s Tag Day!
Tuesday is the deadline for NFL teams to apply the franchise or transition tag to players. Teams have until 4 p.m. ET to make that decision.
We already know that the Giants are unlikely to use the tag on safety Landon Collins. Patricia Traina and I offered more thoughts on that on Monday’s ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast.
Ralph Vacchiano of SNY lists the five teams he believes are most likely to pursue Collins if he reaches free agency. Giants fans won’t be happy to see the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins on that list. The Kansas City Chiefs are also there.
A team not on Vacchiano’s list that has been mentioned to me as a potential landing spot for Collins is the New Orleans Saints.
What would the Giants do at safety without Collins? Paul Schwartz of the New York Post details free agent safety options. Adrian Amos of the Chicago Bears is on Schwartz’s list, and that’s a name I have been told to watch for the Giants.
