Can Sorgi Play Assassin?

The Giants’ have the ultimate spy in their locker room this week and Jim Sorgi, the former backup to Peyton Manning, isn’t afraid to divulge every secret he knows.

The only problem? It probably won’t help.

“I have a lot of information. Being there six years I helped put in a lot of the information that they use,” Sorgi said. “But you know, sometimes how much you know really doesn’t matter. It’s all about executing against him.”

If he can come back, as healthy as ever, he could allow the Giants’ to trade Sage Rosenfels for a mid-round pick, similar to what they traded for him in the first place.
