It is nearly 4 p.m. ET as I write this. Do you know where the New York Giants free agents are? It has been an eerily quiet day on the free agency front for the Giants. Not only have they not signed any new players as of yet, or even re-signed any of their old ones, not a peep has been heard about visits beings scheduled with or even interest being shown in any potential free-agent targets.
Meanwhile, there are things going on in the free agency world.
- Safety Darian Stewart, a player Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo is familiar with after his time with the Baltimore Ravens, signed with the Denver Broncos. That narrows the safety market even further.
- Another safety, Jeron Johnson of the Seattle Seahawks, is reportedly visiting with the Washington Redskins. Johnson, a young player stuck behind Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor in Seattle, would seem to fit the Jerry Reese mold of a talented, under-the-radar, player who simply needs a chance to play somewhere.
- Offensive guard John Jerry, who started every game for the Giants a season ago, is visiting the Tennessee Titans.
- The Dallas Cowboys moved quickly to replace running back DeMarco Murray, signing Darren McFadden to a two-year deal.
Meanwhile, it's all quiet in East Rutherford. There certainly has to be a plan, and you can't accuse the Giants of complete inaction after five signings on Day 1 of free agency. Impatient fans want action, though, and right now the Giants aren't giving it to them.
