More from Ralph Vacchiano

Mark posted something earlier about Ralph Vacchiano trying to guess who would remain Giants. I saw that he had added some to the post that Mark had posted earlier.

So without further adu…

QB David Carr

The Giants would jump at the chance to have this valuable backup return as an insurance policy for the durable Manning. He’s as talented as any backup QB in the league and they are sure that if Manning ever got hurt, Carr could do more than keep the team afloat. He seems to like it here, too. The only question is: Will anyone give him a chance to compete for a starting job? If the answer is “Yes,” he’ll be gone.

CB Kevin Dockery

After the Giants tendered him at $1.545 million last year, they are almost certainly not going that high again after he regressed on both defense and special teams. He’ll get swept out in a secondary overhaul.

P Jeff Feagles

Tom Coughlin values his veteran leadership, but let’s face it: He’s a punter, so that doesn’t matter much. What matters is performance, and that slipped this season. He says it’s not age-related, but he is going to be 44 in two months That valuable old leg isn’t getting any younger or stronger. If he wants to play a 23rd NFL season, it probably will have to be someplace else.

Domenik Hixon

Another one whose fate hinges on the CBA. If he’s unrestricted, the Giants will bid, but they can only go so high because he’s only valuable as a return man for them. The Big 3 at receiver is set for the future (Steve Smith, Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham) and Ramses Barden will take his place next season as the fourth.

WR Sinorice Moss

Believe it or not, he could be back next year because, with no new CBA, he’s only a restricted free agent. But even if they control his rights, the Giants need to do the right thing and let him out of jail. He hasn’t gotten a chance here. Maybe that’s his own doing, I don’t know. But he’s handled it with class. Free Sinorice! Please!

WR Derek Hagan, T Guy Whimper, LB Gerris Wilkinson

Three more players whose fate hinges on the CBA. They are more attractive for a possible return if they are restricted free agents, particular Hagan who is a valuable special teamer.
