I will have a write-up posted later in the day but might as well just start the thread now.

Some news: David Gettleman and Marc Ross are both getting some play with multiple football organizations to become a GM. Ross has been mentioned before and rightfully so, but Gettleman is a real known front office member to most Giants fans. He, like Reese, is a Accorsi prodigy and has been around for three decades of football.

It should also be noted that if either Ross or Gettleman get a GM where there is a coaching opening, I definitely expect former WRs coach Mike Sullivan, now the OC in Tampa, to be a HC candidate.

As much as we are looking into cutting tied with Perry Fewell, I do not see it. For now. Some people want to go the Lovie Smith route (I think Lovie gets a HC job before he even listens to DC offers) which kind of tickles me because Fewell has a direct Lovie Smith connection. Pretty similar schemes and frankly, I do not want the DC hire to also be seen as an heir apparent to Coughlin- particularly one with no connection to Coughlin at all.

Feel free to post Giants-related news and opinions of personnel and roster moves.

I won't miss Bennett. He was a kook, and I think he's replaceable.

Maybe we can get Ballard back. :)

Ballard still is under the Patriots control for the season due to him being on IR all of last season.

Canty went to the Ravens.

DT Cullen Jenkins and PK Josh Brown got signed.

Giants have interest in Matt Slauson, DeAngelo Hall, Karlos Dansby, Ryan Mundy, Justin Durant, Rey Maualuga, Jasper Brinkley,

Only thing on the Cruz (RFA) front is that he switched to Tom Condon. To me that just does not sound like a guy who wants to burn bridges with his current team. Indirectly related are the rumors that the Giants are letting Nicks play out his deal. And unlike some Giants fans, who shall not be named, the FO is not smug enough to think they can immediately get some guy out of thin air to immediately contribute (which they sort of do with their TEs) in their place. I think Cruz getting a deal is a potential message to Nicks, who for somebody that has become increasingly more reliable, needs to do a better job staying healthy.

Forgot about Ross! :x

Anyway, they also signed Ryan Mundy and are interested in WR Louis Murphy (which I think indicates no more Hixon).

Giants sign WR Louis Murphy and LB Dan Connor. Depth signings. I can dig it.

And after losing Bennett and being out of the sweepstakes for Fasano and Keller very quickly, the Giants are interested in Raiders TE Brandon Myers who had something of a break-out year this past season under a pretty terrible offense, being the Raiders leading receiver. This has Mike Pope written all over it. If he visits, he should not leave the building.

They haven't lost all that much. Phillips was never healthy, love AB but it was time to move on. Myers and Bennett is probably close to a push. Just keep Cruz!
