New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka has signed a three-year, $21.75 million contract extension, according to a league source. The contract includes an $8.5 million signing bonus with $10.95 million in total guaranteed money. His base salaries of $950,000 and $2.95 million over the next two seasons are fully guaranteed for skill, injury and salary cap.

New York Giants extend Mathias Kiwanuka

 The Giants gave Kiwanuka a 2 year “prove it” deal last offseason after a nasty neck injury and he certainly proved it last year. He played a hybrid outside linebacker/defensive end spot and was above average in both spots. ProFootballFocus graded him out as the 5th best run stuffing outside linebacker (and 7th best overall) and he managed 5 sacks, 8 hits, and 22 pressures in...

New York Giants select David Wilson, Grace B-

I have to wonder if the New York Giants were prepared to take Doug Martin and panicked when the Bucs moved up and landed him with the 31st pick. David Wilson is a decent prospect, who I gave a 2nd-round grade, but I’m not excited about how he fits in New York. As long as he holds on to the football he’ll be a quality running back, but just doesn’t project as a difference maker...

Giants could still trade Osi Umenyiora

Now that the NFL draft has come and gone, defensive end Osi Umenyiora, the New York Giants once again didn’t trade him.  It sounds as if they were open to trading Osi during the draft. “All options are open with respect to that,” general manager Jerry Reese said when asked if any deals had been discussed, per Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.  “Our first choice...

NY Giants Day 3 Draft Selections

Day 3 of the NFL 2012 Draft is officially over.  Now teams are busy as we read and write, scrambling to lock up UFAs that were not drafted.  It is Day 3 when you can really make your draft, contrary to all of the media hype of Day 1.  Yes, in Day 1 you are talking about much higher probabilities for these players being in the NFL for multiple seasons.  Day 3 picks and UFAs can...

Giants take LSU WR Rueben Randle in second round

The New York Giants seemingly found a replacement for Super Bowl hero Mario Manningham, taking LSU's Rueben Randle with the final pick of the second round of the NFL Draft. Manningham, whose clutch sideline catch ignited a game-winning, fourth-quarterback touchdown drive against the New England Patriots, signed with the San Francisco 49ers as a free agent after last season....

Giants may trade Osi Umenyiora

This morning, Eric Edholm of tweeted that both Browns quarterback Colt McCoy and Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins could end up getting traded since we now know they’re both on the trade block. Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger replied to his tweet and said that he should put Osi Umenyiora on that list because you “never know.” Now we don...

Giants sign defensive tackle Rogers

Hours before the NFL Draft, the New York Giants added depth to their defensive line signing tackle Shaun Rogers. The Super Bowl champions announced the signing of the 12-year veteran on Thursday. A three-time Pro Bowler, Rogers spent last season with the New Orleans Saints, starting four games and making 22 tackles. He also has played with Detroit and Cleveland. Rogers has played...

Rivers aids friend after night on town

Giants linebacker Keith Rivers carried a sick female friend out of New York City's Roosevelt Hospital after he spent a night clubbing with Miami Dolphins star Reggie Bush. Rivers arrived in New York with a bang after being traded to the Giants from the Cincinnati Bengals two weeks ago. But a sober-looking Rivers arrived at Roosevelt Hospital's emergency room at 9:30am local...

In Jerry We Trust

This title reflects the mentality of most fans of the defending Super Bowl Champion NY Giants. GM Jerry Reese has done a stellar job winning three NFC East titles along with two Super Bowl Championships.  He has drated exceptionally well, been wise with free agent signings, and, as mentioned, built two Super Bowl winners. That is why most Giants fans, myself included, believe Jerry...

Giants sign DT Shaun Rogers

The New York Giants announced the signing of free agent defensive tackle Shaun Rogers on their Twitter page. I’m not sure how much football Rogers has left in him. He was clearly brought in, in order to add depth to the Giants defensive line. There’s no way he’ll start ahead of Chris Canty or Linval Joseph after a disappointing season in 2011. This past season with the...

Kate Upton played ping-pong with Jason Pierre-Paul

Brian Kilmeade, perhaps the worst UFC announcer in history, fails to get Kate Upton to remove her clothes during an AXE promotion with NY Giants lineman Jason Pierre-Paul. Later, JPP and KU played... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~
