The requests continue to flow in, one after another as if there's not enough of Chase Blackburn to go around.
"It's been ridiculous, actually,'' Richard Katz, Blackburn's agent, yesterday told The Post. "He's a pretty popular guy. His tale is an incredible tale.''
The question is whether that tale ended with Blackburn starting at middle linebacker for the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI or continues into the 2012 season. The NFL free-agency signing period begins March 13 and the Giants haven't even contacted Katz, haven't expressed any interest in re-signing Blackburn, who was one of a handful of players who shined brightest of all during the improbable Super Bowl run.
It makes for a strange celebratory ride. Blackburn already has made numerous personal appearances - this week he was honored with a parade as a hometown hero in Marysville, Ohio - and is scheduled for many, many more signings and meet-and-greets.

Hot News for WR Domenik Hixon
Seems like that is it for the Manningham Era with the Giants. People can now come out of the woodwork and nitpick the guy as he is out the door--He drops balls, He drifts on his routes (this one isn't original. We all heard Cris Collinsworth say it during the Super Bowl. Sure happy Mario "drifted" on his 38-yarder)--but the bottom line is that he is a damn good (and...
