Photo by Maxim34374_Used under Creative Commons LicenseJim MancariBGB Assistant EditorOne-by-one, it seems every Giants free agent will be calling some place other than the Big Apple home next season. We knew that based on the team’s salary cap situation that many familiar faces would be gone this offseason. However, this many this soon? It’s rather mind-boggling. Mario Manningham and Brandon Jacobs will be heading out west to join the San Francisco 49ers, Aaron Ross will be a Jacksonville Jaguar, Devin Thomas is heading to the Chicago Bears and Dave Tollefson will suit up in the silver and black of the Oakland Raiders. It’s also likely that offensive tackle Kareem McKenzie won’t be back either. Though none of these players were as important to the team as Eli Manning, Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz, Justin Tuck or Jason Pierre-Paul, they still helped the Giants in their Super Bowl r...

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. Rivers is an injury risk going forward and would likely not be resigned as a free...
