Giants sign Aaron Ross, Lose Bennett, Interested in Slauson?

The New York Football Giants are bringing back former 2007 first-round pick CB Aaron Ross. After allowing Ross to test the market last season and sign with the Jaguars, Ross returns home after spending one season in Jacksonville. The Jaguars released Ross recently and both sides were interested in a reunion. The terms of the deal are not yet known, but it is believed that it’s a one-year deal.

While the Giants signed Ross, they’re losing TE Martellus Bennentt, who signed a four-year deal with the Bears. The Giants, who don’t like to overpay for a TE, will look to sign a veteran tight end, or stick with Bear Pascoe and last year’s fourth round pick Adrien Robinson.

Former Giants DT Chris Canty also inked a deal with the super bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. He signed a 3-year $8 million deal, which is similar to what the Giants gave Cullen Jenkins.

With G Kevin Boothe testing the market, reports have surfaced that the Giants are interested in former Jets G Matt Slauson if they can’t reach a deal with Boothe. More on this later.

    Always been a Ross fan, glad to see you back.

    Ross – lets see, he had a decent run in the Super Bowl but always seemed to be a bit of a punching bag. At least he is proven depth.

    Bennett – As tantalizing his skill set was, and the potential to make big catches, I dont feel he is Giants material, let alone someone we could afford. The Giants always field tough guy tight ends with workmanlike attitudes. Marty was gregarious and talented but I dont think he really fit in with us. With that said, I would have loved to see him in a 2nd year with a better comfort level of the offence.

    Canty – Well the Giants basically flipped Canty for Jenkins. Same age and in my opinion same type of production when healthy. Chris has knee issues I am sure that the team is scared of. And Jenkins has been durable. Good Luck Chris, I like ya alot.

    Boothe – Dont over pay for Kevin. Let him test the market. I love his versatility and all that but there are lots of guys that can give us what he does.
