The NFL has already moved kickoffs closer, resulting in more touchbacks. The day could come when kickoffs are removed entirely.

Osi Umenyiora will likely skip offseason workouts

According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News,  New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora isn’t expected to show up for next week’s offseason workouts.

NY Giants re-signed LB Chase Blackburn to a one year deal

Finally! Big Blue came to their senses on bringing Chase Blackburn back on the team adding depth to their linebacker position.

Cincinnati Bengals trade Keith Rivers to the New York Giants

Trade for Cincinnati: Rivers is an above average linebacker when healthy, but the Bengals have a good depth of linebackers already (Maualuga, Manny Lawson, Thomas Howard, and 2011 3rd rounder Dontay Moch) and they had one of the best defenses in the league last season without Rivers playing a snap.
