According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants know they need to address the tight end position once the new league year begins on Tuesday.  They want to re-sign Martellus Bennett, but don’t plan on getting into a bidding war to keep him. They want Martellus Bennett back, but they won’t get into a bidding war (likely with Tampa Bay). And if he goes, it seems unlikely they’d turn the job over to Bear Pascoe and second-year pro Adrien Robinson. They will check out free-agent replacements, like Brandon Myers (Oakland) and Anthony Fasano (Miami). Also, one NFL source told me that tight ends coach Mike Pope has his eye on an under-the-radar tight end in the draft. I have an idea who it is, but I don’t know for sure yet (and the source wouldn’t tell me). Bennett had a very good season in 2012, but the Giants can’t afford to over pay for his services.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();

New York Giants 2013 NFL Mock Draft

The New York Giants not only have to recover from missing the playoffs after winning the Super Bowl in 2012, but the Super Bowl host curse will rear its head again in 2013. However, I don’t believe in curses, and the 2013 draft offers sky-high potential to reform this back into a contender this season. The passing game will improve with Hakeem Nicks healthy again, and the defense...

Cornerback Cory Webster takes a big pay cut to stay in New York

According to Kimberly Jones of NFL Network, cornerback Cory Webster restructured his contract taking a pay cut to stay with the New York Giants.
