“I just got out of a really tough workout in the pool right now,” Smith said on ESPN New York 1050’s Ruocco and Lundberg show by way of Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork on Thursday. “I am running in the pool, doing a lot of strength work and I am doing pretty good. Things are looking good for me. I’m really excited and I can’t wait to get this lockout done.”
Smith could be a restricted free agent based on whatever the new collective bargaining agreement will be. The wideout reiterated that he wants to remain a Giant and is confident that the team will re-sign him. The Giants have given him a second-round restricted free-agent tender just in case.
“It is a little bit of uncertainty but I am confident, the Giants want me there and I want to be there,” Smith said. “I love New York and I love the fans and we have had so much success there, I just hope that we can get a deal done and I will be back.”
