According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, free agent wide receiver Ramses Barden might re-sign with the Giants after testing the open market. Barden, the Giants’ third-round pick in 2009, is heading back to the New York area and will take a physical with team doctors on Thursday, the Daily News has learned. And if all goes well for the unrestricted free agent, according to an NFL source, he could sign a one-year deal to return before the end of the day. It is not believed that Barden’s possible return has anything to do with worries about the absence of Cruz or Nicks. The Giants seem to expect Cruz will be re-signed in the coming weeks. And while Nicks’ absence from the start of organized team activities (OTAs) on Wednesday was unexplained – and seemed to irk Tom Coughlin – the team seems to expect him back this week and he has been participating in the offseason program.

Giants’ Hakeem Nicks is taking on a leadership role with young receiving corps

New York Giants receiver Hakeem Nick is qualified to become a leader for the team. He’s won a Super Bowl with them, fought through injuries, and now he’s the oldest player in the group.
