Free Agency is Friday. It should be an awesome ride. I fully expect the Giants to be very active in free agency. Does that mean they will spend $100 million on Julius Peppers? Probably not. But, it does mean the Giants will do everything they can to improve their team. Here are a couple of players the I think the Giants should go after.
Say what you want about him, the dude makes plays. He’s a ballhawk in the secondary, and that’s something the Giants don’t have. He’d look awfully good next to Kenny Phillips. Two dynamic safeties. I’m getting excited just thinking about it. Sharper is 34, so the Giants wouldn’t be interested in a long term deal. One year, maybe two. He’d be a great mentor for a young secondary.
Robinson is young, talented, and gets hurt often. He’ll also be expecting a long term deal with a lot of cash. That’s one problem. But, he’s so talented, and if it weren’t for injuries, he’d be mentioned in the same breath as Darrelle Revis. He’s that good. I don’t know if the GIants are willing to pony up that much cash. He’ll want a 6 year deal, for something like $80 million. Giants aren’t going to want to spend that much money. I still think they should kick the tires around, but don’t expect much out of it.
I wrote about Morrison here. He received a third round tender. And, he’s a tackling machine. Consistently in 120 range. He’d fill the void left by Pierce. I think he would be a great addition.
If they can’t get Morrison, they should go after Bulluck. He’s 33, so a long term deal is out of the question. But, he’s such a good leader, something that I thought the GIants were lacking last year. He’s going to give you everything he’s got. He’s someone you get, and draft a linebacker line Rolando McClain, so Bulluck can mentor him.
There’s a reason I’m targeting all defensive players. I thought the offense was solid. If I had to choose, I would go after Morrison and Sharper. I think Peppers is going to cost too much. I think Dansby is not as good as Morrison. And I think Sharper will provide that leadership presence. Who do YOU think the Giants should go after?
