Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Steve Serby talked to Carl Banks about Thibodeaux:
“They need his energy anyway. I wouldn’t want a locker room full of mousey-type guys. Be who you are. The mousey personalities marching to the same beat … express yourself. Be who you are,” Banks, the legendary Giants linebacker, told The Post.
“This sports market could use it, to be honest with you. New York sports market doesn’t even have a dynamic personality. You got a bunch of whiners, and underachievers. So give me somebody who’s dynamic, who can live up to the billing, and we are yet to know what that is. But this market could use it.
“Good sports and good personalities is good for business. … He’s good for business in a general sense — for your business, for fan enthusiasm, he’s just good. Great personalities are always good for business. I don’t know what he is until he gets on a football field. He’s a dynamic skill set and his personality is great, and if that all comes together, he’ll be great for business.”
“Just know, this is real, we’re talking real numbers,” Thibodeaux said. “When you tell somebody 250, I don’t know what 250 means. You forget all the zeroes behind it.”
So, not $250 — and $250,000 seems like ... a lot. Though, Thibodeaux’s contract should slot in at $31.33 million over four years, plus a $19.97 million signing bonus. Gano, by the way, is one of the NFL’s highest-paid kickers, signing a three year, $14 million extension in 2020.
