Marketing Rights Holding Up Eli’s New Deal?

From Pro Football Talk: We heard yesterday that the delay in the finalization of the nearly-nine-figure Eli Manning contract arose from issues between CAA, which handles Manning’s football negotiations, and IMG, which still represents him for marketing purposes. We then were told by a source with knowledge of the situation that it’s not a CAA-IMG […]

Since Everyone is Interested in Nicks…

I thought I’d let him speak for himself. Here’s Hakeem Nicks’ transcript (from giants.com). Also I’m holding an open commentary to what Andre Browns’ nick name should be. Jacobs is Earth, Bradshaw is Fire, Danny Ware wants to be water. What’s left for Brown? Mists? Fog? natural disaster? Something much better?  (I would think so) […]

Ex Giants Receivers:

From ProFootballTalk.com: Veteran receiver Tim Carter, who spent a full season out of football after being cut by the Texans during the 2008 preseason, has resurfaced. According to Billy Coats of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Carter has agreed to terms with the Rams. He was invited to the team’s recent minicamp on a tryout basis.  […]

Giants Almost Had Jeremy Maclin:

From Mike Garafolo: The Giants said they didn’t trade up in the first round of this past weekend’s draft because they didn’t want to reach for a wide receiver. It turns out they were closer to reaching — and to a different player — than they let on. Before drafting North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks with […]

Butch Davis Talks About Hakeem Nicks

The Daily News did an interview with Butch Davis, Hakeem Nicks’s college coach: Daily News: Tell me a little about Hakeem Nicks. Butch Davis: I think the kid is a terrific football player. One of the things I’ve always admired and respected about the Giant organization, going all the way back to the George Young […]

Clint Sintim-Instant Analysis

Once again, I feel that the Giants hit the jackpot. Clint Sintim might start on the strongside on Day 1,and at the very least be productive on special teams. He is an explosive pass rusher. In his first season, look for him to come out on passing downs. This is a great pick. However, we […]

More On Nicks

NY Daily News has more on the Nicks pick: There were a few frayed nerves in the war room when the Philadelphia Eagles traded up and took a receiver at 19 in the NFL draft today. And even Tom Coughlin admitted the phones were ringing as the Giants had their fingers crossed nobody would ruin […]

Pick Nicks:

With the 29th pick of the 2009 NFL Draft the New York Giants select Hakeem Nicks, wide receiver,  from North Carolina.   This was the popular pick from many mock drafts around the NFL community prior to the draft.  Nicks is probably the most NFL ready receiver in the draft in my opinion and will look […]

Braylon Edwards Plus A 1st Round Receiver?:

From Ralph Vacchiano: The situation is still this: The Giants won’t offer more than a 2 and a 5. The Browns, as far as anyone knows, still want at least a 1. But … Don’t be shocked if Giants GM Jerry Reese tries for the Daily Double today anyway. The Giants will be drafting a […]

Braylon Edwards Update and Darrius Heyward-Bey?:

Tom Rock of Newsday is reporting the talks with the Browns are going nowhere. That’s where the Giants are in their pursuits of Braylon Edwards and Anquan Boldin, according to a team source: “Nowhere.” “At this point we are looking at the draft,” the source said. Well, it was a fun month of speculation. But […]
