The Giants have signed Brandon Stokley today. The former Colt instantly becomes the new slot reciever. While he’s getting up there in age, Stokley was incredibly productive in the playoffs last season with Seattle.
The Giants worked out a bunch of receivers today, according to Jason La Canfora. According to La Canfora, the Giants worked out TJ Houshmandzadeh and David Clowney, among others, but decided to go with Stokley.
The Giants needed a more viable threat coming from the slot. Victor Cruz just isn’t ready, and frankly, I think Stokley will be more productive than Domenik Hixon ever will be. He’s a veteran, he knows how to get open, and he’s sure handed. Things the Giants need right now.
